Features & Benefits

Product Highlights
  • Deuteron® Wax PP imparts elegant surface feel, good matting and excellent mechanical stability. In combination with silica it is possible to improve the polishing resistance and improve the settling properties of silica other heavy materials. In powder coatings Deuteron® Wax PP leads to good degassing properties.

Application and Dosage Information

Deuteron® Wax PP is suitable for a wide range of applica- tions including:

  • Wood and joinery coatings
  • Flexographic and gravure inks
  • Overprint varnishes
  • Metal coatings (can and coil coatings)
  • Powder coatings

The use of Deuteron® Wax PP especially improves perfor- mance in:

  • Abrasion and scratch resistance
  • Rub resistance (printing inks)
  • Matting (conventional coatings and powder coatings)
  • COF (coefficient of friction) reduction


  • 0.5 - 3.0 % (calculated on the complete formulation) depending on binder, application and required properties.


  • Deuteron® Wax PP is easy to disperse and can be incorpo- rated 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.
