Due to their particle sizes, POLYBLEND 200 and POLYBLEND 200XF can be readily mixed into coatings and inks systems with conventional dispersion equipment. Pre-dispersion or excessive milling or grinding is not required. Also, the high molecular weight of POLYBLEND 200 and POLYBLEND 200XF make it more resistant to elevated processing temperatures and strong (e.g. aromatic) solvents.
