Application of water-based wax in water-based coatings

Polyethylene wax, with smooth hand feeling, high hardness and good abrasion resistance. Different adding methods can give the system different gloss. It can be used as a dispersant, brightener, antiwear agent, matting agent, slip agent, etc., used in coatings industry.

The application function of water-based wax in water-based paint:

1, High slip, high wear resistance, scratch resistance:

After the polyethylene wax emulsion is added to the water-based paint, during the film forming process, the wax drifts to the surface of the coating film and is evenly dispersed. A wax protective film will be formed on the coating film, which reduces the friction coefficient; this can improve the anti-friction of the coating , Improve slip and scratch resistance.

2, The gloss of the coating is mainly affected by the particle size of the emulsion:

Generally speaking, the better the gloss effect, the greater the change in the particle size of the wax emulsion, which is related to the gloss of the coating and the crystallinity of the wax.

After polyethylene wax powder is dispersed in the coating system, during the physical drying or curing and crosslinking process after the coating is applied, the wax particles will drift to the surface of the paint and gradually migrate to the surface of the paint, thereby playing a protective role.
