Paints and Polish

In water-based paints, micronized oxidized polyethylene wax can be added to the formulation to improve the paint’s durability and aesthetic properties. It helps in reducing surface defects like scratching and scuffing, enhances the paint’s glossiness, and provides a smoother finish.

Similarly, in water-based polishes, whether for automotive, wood, or other surfaces, micronized oxidized polyethylene wax can be incorporated to enhance gloss, provide lubrication during application, and improve the overall durability of the polish layer.

3D Printing

Micronized oxidized polyethylene wax (MPOW) finds various applications in 3D printing, particularly in fused filament fabrication (FFF) or fused deposition modeling (FDM) processes.

Nitrocellulose Lacquers

micronized oxidized polyethylene wax into nitrocellulose lacquers offers several benefits, including enhanced surface protection, improved gloss, scratch resistance, reduced blocking, enhanced flow and levelling, anti-settling properties, and potential for adjusting gloss levels, contributing to the overall performance and appearance of the coated surfaces.

Water Based Hot Melt Adhesives

Micronized oxidized polyethylene wax (MPOW) when used in water-based hot melt adhesives offers several benefits, including improved rheology, enhanced adhesive properties, reduced blocking and stringing, extended open time, enhanced thermal stability, reduced foaming, and improved surface appearance, contributing to the overall performance and quality of bonded assemblies.

Thermoplastic Elastomers

Micronized oxidized polyethylene wax (MPOW)  are used in thermoplastic elastomers for  improved processing, surface lubrication, moldability, reduced surface tackiness, enhanced surface finish, improved weatherability, impact modification, and reduced die buildup, contributing to the overall performance and quality of TPE products.
