Polyethylene wax knowledge base is here!

Polyethylene wax is a non-toxic, odorless, non-corrosive chemical material. Its fineness is white small bead/flake. It has high melting point, high hardness, high gloss, snow-white color and other characteristics. It also has excellent chemical stability. It has excellent temperature resistance, drug resistance and electrical gas resistance at room temperature. It is widely used and can be used as a modifier of chlorinated polyethylene and plastics, Coating agent for textiles and tackifier for improving viscosity of crude oil and fuel oil.

For PVC and other external lubricants, PE wax has a stronger internal lubrication effect. In addition, it can also be used for printing ink, paper, concentrated masterbatch, bio-dissolving masterbatch, plastic film and candle, etc. PE wax can also be used for paints, hot melt adhesives, adhesives, etc.

Application of pe wax:
For a variety of different technology applications. Such as color masterbatch, wax additive, care products, coatings, varnish, offset printing ink, cosmetics industry, lubricants and other fields
1. Concentrated color masterbatch and filling masterbatch: used as dispersant in color masterbatch processing and widely used in polyolefin color masterbatch. It has good compatibility with PE, PVC, PP and other resins, and has excellent external and internal lubrication effects;
2. Pipes, composite stabilizers and profiles: used as dispersants, lubricants and brighteners in the molding and processing of PVC, pipes, composite stabilizers, PVC profiles, pipe fittings, PP and PE, to enhance the degree of plasticization, improve the toughness and surface smoothness of plastic products, and widely used in the production of PVC composite stabilizers;
3. Ink: as the carrier of pigments, it can improve the abrasion resistance of paints and inks, improve the dispersion of pigments and fillers, and have good anti-settlement effect. It can be used as a leveling agent for paints and inks, so that the products have good luster and three-dimensional sense;
4. Wax products: widely used in floor wax, car wax, polishing wax, candles and other wax products to improve the softening point of wax products and increase their strength and surface gloss.

5. Cable material: as a lubricant for cable insulation material, it can enhance the diffusion of filler, improve extrusion molding rate, increase mold flow, and facilitate demoulding;
6. Hot-melt products: used for various hot-melt adhesives, thermosetting powder coatings, road marking paint, etc., as dispersant, with good anti-settlement effect, and make the products have a good luster and three-dimensional sense;
7. Rubber: as a processing aid for rubber, it can enhance the diffusion of filler, improve the extrusion molding rate, increase the mold flow, facilitate demoulding, and improve the surface brightness and smoothness of the product after demoulding;
8. Cosmetics: make the product have the luster and stereoscopic feeling of number;
9. Injection molding: enhance the surface gloss of products.
10. Principle of action in paint :Polyethylene wax is dissolved in solvent at high temperature (about 100-140 ℃) and precipitated when cooled to normal temperature. It exists in the coating in the form of microcrystalline. Because its thixotropy is conducive to the storage of the coating, after the application and construction of the coating, the solvent can migrate to the surface of the coating film during the evaporation process, and finally form a “waxed” surface with other components of the coating. For powder coating, it can produce patterns and matting, and can also resist scratching, abrasion, polishing, etc; It can improve the dispersion of pigment.


Advantages of PE wax:
1. Plasticizing and reducing wear
2. Improve the wetting effect of pigment fillers and fibers
3. Reduce viscosity and friction
4. Internal and external lubrication
5. Anti-slip and anti-sticking effect

Production process:
Pyrolysis polyethylene wax is made from high molecular weight polyethylene as the main raw material and other auxiliary materials through a series of depolymerization reactions. The depolymerization reaction is the most critical step in the production of polyethylene wax. The whole process of depolymerization reaction should be carried out in a closed reactor.
