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.
Waxes used in metal printing can increase the scratch resistance and smoothness of the coating, with excellent transparency and slippery feel, hardly influencing the gloss, often recommended for metal printing coatings to improve gloss and transport efficiency.
The metal printing coating gloss oil system used in the outer can coating adopts micronized wax mainly to prevent the collision in the filling process, with high requirements on the hardness and fineness of the wax, easiness to disperse, good transparency and anti-sanding performance.
Waxes in powder coating have bonding agent. The micronized wax does not dissolve under the temperature of bonding, which can be coated on powder coating particles to prevent them from sticking together. Compared with inorganic materials, wax powder as a bonding separator will not affect the leveling of powder coatings.
