Antaron™ (Ganex™) polymers

Detail by Market:

The Antaron (Ganex) family of alkylated polyvinylpyrrolidones are relatively low molecular weight polymers varying in degree of hydrophobicity from water soluble powder (P-904LC) to water insoluble flaked solid (WP-660).

Ganex polymers are copolymers produced from alpha-olefin and vinylpyrrolidone. The alkyl component varies from a C-4 to C-30 moiety in concentrations from 10 to 80 percent. The combination of vinylpyrrolidone and alkyl functionalities produces a balance of dispersing and waterproofing capacity in the Ganex line.

Ganex is sold as Antaron in Europe and Canada.
