Description of Polyethylene Wax
Polyethylene wax is derived from ethylene through a process called polymerization. Manufacturers alter the polymerization process to get a product with desired qualities. However, certain basic properties of the material are common for all PE wax.
Polyethylene Wax, also known as PE Wax, is an ultra-low molecular weight PE. PE wax helps granule produce by decrease the softening point of the system. PE wax is a very good external lubricant for PVC. When PE wax use in PVC application, the final produce face has been shine. Polyethylene wax using decreases the friction so increase the extrusion capacity. PE wax using doesn’t change the product color because PE wax has got
good oxidation resistance.
Uses of Polyethylene Wax
The wax finds application in a wide range of industries because of its desirable physical and chemical properties. As the material can have a broad range of melt points, densities and other properties, it is understandable why it is used so extensively.
Polyethylene waxes have very unique polymer properties that make them useful in many applications. The major functions of PE wax in many formulations are to either provide lubrication and/or provide physical modification of a formula by changing viscosity and / or melt point. Polyethylene wax increase inorganic and organic pigment dispersion in
matrix polymer during masterbatch processing. Also, PE wax helps granule produce by decrease softening point of system. Polyethylene wax is very good external lubricant for PVC. When PE wax use in PVC application, final produce face has been shine.
Polyethylene wax using decrease the friction so increase the extrusion capacity. PE wax using doesn’t change the product color because PE wax has got good oxidation resistance. PE wax doesn’t bad effect product’s heat and light stability because pe wax doesn’t include catalizors remnant.
Polyethylene wax increase last product’s light stability. PE wax hasn’t got toxic materials so PE wax can be use food packaging applications. PE wax use hot melt application.
