A wide range of Paraflex™ CW gloss waxes is available for different types of paper, machine viscosity and balances between gloss and scuff resistance. These waxes are used for twist, fold, bunch and sachet wrappers for sweets, meat and cheese wrappers, flower wrappers, technical wrapping papers, and decorative papers.
Gloss waxes are principally coated on paper to give the following properties:
- good release against the packed product
- deadfold (ability to maintain fold or twist)
- very high gloss
- low moisture vapour transmission rate
- excellent resistance to machine abrasion (scuff)
- anti blocking
