n General introduction
Waxes are widely used throughout the world for a range of applications, including packaging, coatings, cosmetics, foods, adhesives, inks, castings, crayons, chewing gum, polishes, candles, paints, plastic stabilizers, textile auxiliaries, masterbatch, foaming agent, plastic forming and other industries.
WellubTM Waxes are Polyolefin Wax, Oxidized Polyethylene Wax and FT wax produced by Sundow Polymers Co.,LTD.
The polyethylene wax is fully saturated homopolymers of ethylene, which has high degree of crystalline and linearity. PE wax has a high crystalline value and thus it has attributes like low solubility in solvents, higher hardness at elevated temperatures and oil thickening capability. Compared with PE Wax, the molecule structure of OPE Wax have some hydroxyl groups on them. So the intermiscibility with the polar resin will been improved a lot. It is better than PE wax when it is with the polar material.
FT wax (Fischer-Tropsch wax) is manufactured with natural gas as a raw material. With its high melting point and low melting viscosity, this FT wax has hardness with excellent heat stability.
n Characteristic of Wellub™ Waxes
² Low toxicity, low reactivity
² Low odor
² Extremely hard (Penetration 1 Max)
² Excellent mold release/dispersion characteristics
² Excellent glossy effect
² Sharp melting point/congealing point
² Excellent compatibility with resins
