PolyGroup Inc. and Two H Chem Ltd. are pleased to announce the introduction of polypropylene based microparticle powders adding to the already established line of polyethylene based microparticle powders. The PROPOLDER™ product line offers two types of polypropylene powder; FPP™ Series polypropylene homopolymer and MPP™ Series polypropylene homopolymer grafted with maleic anhydride. Polypropylene based powders exhibit higher melting point and superior hardness compared to polyethylene. Maleic anhydride grafted polypropylene provides the functionality required for dispersion in water and the polarity for adhesion to glass, metals and other substrates. PROPOLDER™ powders are available in a wide range of average particles sizes from 5-300 micron. PROPOLDER™ polypropylene powders can be used in paints, varnishes and coatings for multiple purposes including anti-slip agent, structural effects and satin and matte finishes.
