Deuteron® WAX PP2 is a micronized modified polypropylene wax with well-balanced properties and an attractive economic profile. It's a versatile product suitable for various applications such as solvent-based, water-based, 100% systems (like UV curable), and powder coatings. This wax provides an elegant surface feel, good matting, and excellent mechanical stability. When used with silica, it enhances the polishing resistance and settling properties of heavy materials. In powder coatings, Deuteron® WAX PP2 contributes to good degassing properties.

Applications

Deuteron® Wax PP/2 is suitable for a wide range of applications including:

  • Wood and joinery coatings
  • Metal coatings
  • Flexographic inks
  • Overprint varnishes
  • Powder coatings
Usage

The use of Deuteron® Wax PP/2 especially improves performance in:

  • Matting with smooth and elegant feel
  • Burnishing / Polishing resistance
  • Reduced settling of silica and fillers
  • Anti-BlockingPowder coatings
  • Degasing
Processing Information
  • Deuteron® Wax PP/2 is easy to disperse and can be incorporated using a common high-speed stirrer. In low viscous systems it might be necessary to use a high shear dispersing unit to properly disperse the material.
  • A pre-mix in water should contain a suitable cosolvent and about 2 % of an emulsifier.
  • Suitable emulsifiers are ethoxylated grades (e.g. based on polysorbat or fat alco- hols) with an HLB value of 15.
