The various grades of HI-WAX™ are used for a broad range of applications, such as slip agents, disperants, resin modifiers, and mold release agents for the molding of various synthetic resins.
Mold Release Agent for the Molding of Plastics
The polyethylene wax can be used as a mold release agent for plastics due to its releasability which increases productivity, prevents pollution and enables the molding of complex shapes.
Modifier for Engineered Plastics
It is used as a modifier for engineered plastics due to its impact strength and flexural modulus properties. With the use of HI-WAX™, manufacturers realize cost reduction due to thin materials.
Release Agent for Rubbers
HI-WAX™ can also be used as a release agent for rubbers due to its releasability and stability.
Dispersant for Color Masterbatch
Two grades of HI-WAX™ are available for dispersant for color masterbatch applications; HI-WAX™ 420P which is a conventional type wax, and HI-WAX™ GB-01 which is a slightly acid modified type wax. Advantages of HI-WAX™ 420P include good pigment dispersibility, cost-effectiveness, and meets food regulations. For HI-WAX™ GB-01, advantages include special molecular design for and better pigment dispersibility.
