Most of the paper during papermaking is added with internal glue, wax emulsion enables the inherent absorption membrane of paper fiber with ideal water resistance.
Wax, as an important component of EVA environment-friendly hot melt adhesive, not only affects the basic indexes of EVA hot melt adhesive, such as the viscosity and softening point, but also has an important influence on the adhesion performance, curing speed, temperature resistance and other properties of hot melt adhesives.
Wax emulsion for waterborne adhesive can improve adhesive property, heat sealability, opening time and low temperature resistance.
Coil steel coatings used micronized waxes mainly to prevent the coil steel from scratches. The micronized wax provides the coatings with excellent smoothness and abrasive resistance, which can not only maintain excellent miscibility and dispersity, but also provide extremely low friction coefficient.
The application of wax in solvent floor coating is mainly to increase the scratch resistance, abrasive resistance and dispersion of surface coating.
The application of wax in floor coating is mainly to improve the scratch resistance of the coating. It’s required that wax powders have good dispersibility, storage mode and compatibility.
Before being added to solvent-based system, wax powder is generally mixed with weak solvent, such as ether, alcohol and ester, to wet the wax powder particles, or prepared into slurry.
The wax in water-based industrial coatings mainly provides as abrasive resistance, scratch resistance, improving the handfeel.
