Features/Benefits

High melt point petroleum wax that adds flexibility to your end use application.

Typical applications and products that use microcrystalline waxes

Candles

  • Reduces the size of base paraffin crystal structure
  • Increases melt point, scratch hardness, heat stability, and opacity of the base paraffin

Cosmetics and personal care

  • Brings dimensional stability to solid lipsticks
  • Emulsions, creams and lotions realize improved emolliency and stabilized viscosities
  • Imparts high temperature strength in anhydrous products such as lipsticks

Electrical and electrical insulating agents

  • Microcrystalline waxes offer good electrical insulating properties and provie a moisture barrier

Gum base

  • The high crystalline structure provides texture and tack control to chewing gum

Hot melt coatings

  • Addition of these waxes to EVA based coatings improves resistance to animal and vegetable fats, improves adhesion to various substrates, and increases resistance to low temperature cracking
  • High and low melting microcrystalline waxes used alone or in combination provide various desired physical properties including gloss retention and sealing strength improvement

Inks, paints, and solvent-based coatings

  • Microcrystalline waxes improve rub resistance, reduce printing off-set, act as lubricants, and act as anti-mar agents

Investment and precision casting of metal

  • The use of a microcrystalline wax minimizes contraction from a metal surface by reducing the crystallinity of a casting wax
  • The flexibility of these waxes promotes good adhesion to metal surfaces
  • These waxes provide good dimensional stability and low ash to the wax pattern

Laminating adhesives

  • Reduces the size of base paraffin crystal structure
  • These waxes are widely used as functional laminating adhesives having low MVTR and low gas transmission rates

Plastics

  • Microcrystalline waxes make excellent Anti-Blocks

Polishes and coatings

  • These products serve as high gloss lubricants in wax rich polishes and coatings

Rubber

  • Highly branched microcrystalline waxes provide controlled surface migration for rubber products

Applications

This product is most frequently used in plastic, mold release, adhesive, and polish applications.
