The Wide Use of Paraffin Wax The Wide Use of Paraffin Wax

The use of paraffin wax is very extensive. After immersing the paper in paraffin wax, various wax papers with good waterproof performance can be prepared, which can be used in food, medicine and other packaging, metal rust prevention and printing industries; after paraffin wax is added to cotton yarn, the textile can be soft, smooth and elastic; Paraffin wax can also be made into detergents, emulsifiers, dispersants, plasticizers, greases and so on.


Now, there are many different paraffin wax products on the market. Wax products based on polyethylene, polypropylene and Brazilian wax are most commonly used in coatings and inks. Wax products based on polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) can also be used as matting agents.


Compared with silica, paraffin wax modifies the paint film by floating on the outermost surface. This also affects the following properties: extinction/gloss; anti-slip and anti-fouling properties; anti-blocking and abrasion resistance, anti-settling properties and surface tension resistance.


Most of these products are micronized, so that they can be used in a wide range of concentrations in wax emulsion-based coatings. The dispersibility varies depending on the particle size and particle size distribution.
