Surely everyone has heard of polyethylene wax, which is also widely used in daily life and has gradually become a necessity in life. With the continuous development of industrial technology, the application scope of polyethylene wax is also increasingly large, which indeed brings a lot of convenience to our life. Therefore, we need to accumulate some necessary knowledge for daily use, which is also beneficial for the use of polyethylene wax.
Polyethylene wax can be said to be a product of polyethylene. The small amount of oligomers produced in the process of polyethylene production is polyethylene wax, which is also called low molecular weight polyethylene or high molecular weight wax. It is a non-toxic, odorless, non-corrosive, white or slightly yellow solid with a relative molecular weight of 1800-8000. It has excellent cold resistance, heat resistance, chemical resistance and wear resistance, so it is widely used in many industries. In normal production, this part of the wax can be directly added to polyolefin processing as an additive, which can increase the gloss of the product and improve the processing performance.
Polyethylene wax is a good insensitizer for explosives, and can also be used as a dispersant and lubricant for plastics and pigments, a moisture-proof agent for corrugated paper, a hot melt adhesive and floor wax, car beauty wax, etc.
People make the best use of their talents, and everything is used to the best advantage. Therefore, it is necessary for us to first understand some daily knowledge of polyethylene wax, which is widely used in water-based ink, water-based gloss oil, water-based paint, water-based paint, anti-adhesive agent for paper products, softener and water-resistant finishing agent for textiles, agriculture, leather, shoe polish and other fields.
Usage: Polyethylene wax is directly or diluted with water and evenly sprayed on the surface of the product, and the recommended addition amount is 5%-10%. The specific addition amount can be adjusted according to the product system.
The light and chemical resistance of polyethylene wax is very good, and it is widely used.
Because polyethylene wax has very good external lubrication and strong internal lubrication, and good solubility with polyethylene, PVC, polypropylene and other resins, it can be used as a lubricant in extrusion, calendering, injection molding, etc. It can improve the processing efficiency, prevent and overcome the adhesion of film, pipe, sheet and other materials, improve the smoothness and glossiness of finished products and improve the appearance of finished products.
Polyethylene wax can be used as a concentrated masterbatch dispersant and lubricating dispersant for filling masterbatch and degrading masterbatch of various thermoplastic resins, which can improve the processing performance, surface gloss, lubricity and thermal stability of HDPE, PP and PVC, etc.
It is used as a lubricant for cable insulation materials to enhance the diffusion of fillers, increase the extrusion molding rate, increase the flow rate of the mold and facilitate demoulding.
Polyethylene wax can be used as a rubber processing aid to enhance the diffusion of fillers, increase the extrusion molding rate, increase the flow rate of the mold and facilitate demoulding.
With good light and chemical resistance, polyethylene wax can be used as a carrier for pigments, which can improve the wear resistance of paints and inks, improve the dispersion of pigments and fillers, prevent pigment settling, and can be used as a flatting agent for paints and inks.
Polyethylene wax can be used as a softener and lubricant for natural or synthetic fibers, which can improve the wear resistance, tear strength, wrinkle resistance, and sewing properties of wrinkle-free clothes, reduce needle cutting and adjust the hand feel.
