Product Highlights
  • Deuteron® AP 348 is a Polyethylene wax in a coarse particle form (pastilles) for the use in powder coatings. Because of the supply form it is necessary to extrude/ melt Deuteron® AP 348 during the manufacturing process.
  • In powder coating applications Deuteron® AP 348 leads to a smooth matting effect in the range of satin gloss systems. At increased addition levels the use of low meting PE wax can lead to a blooming effect.
