Basewax™ waxes for lubrification
Generally, the more polar the wax, the more compatible it is with the commonly used materials, such as PVC and ABS polymers allowing for the internal lubrication of the system. As a result of this compatibility, the wax is able to impact performance at a molecular level, influencing properties such as melt strength and flow performance. In addition, their high affinity to the plastic matrix allows for excellent transparency, even at high doses. Additionally, it tends to minimize surface migration, which has a negative impact on adhesion characteristics such as printability, bonding and welding.
