Applications

Licocene PP 1502 granules is a low crystalline, low molecular weight propylene-ethylene-copolymer. Dispersed in water, or solvents it offers excellent adhesion properties for leather and shoe care providing a very flexible coating with enhanced water resistance. 

The low viscosity, end excellent wetting behavior of Licocene PP 1502 granules makes it a perfect fit for the modification of hot melt adhesives. Unlike other polymers, Licocene PP 1502 granules shows superior adhesion properties combined with insignificant residual tack and improved cohesion. 

Used as a carrier for Masterbatches, Licocene PP 1502 granules guaranties high loadings and an outstanding dispersion of the additives being used.

Processing aid for polyolefins.
