Use of OPE Wax – Oxidized Polyethylene Wax

2022-02-16   Pageview:63

Oxidized polyethylene wax, oxidized polyethylene wax is an excellent new polar wax, because the molecular structure chain of oxidized polyethylene wax contains a certain amount of carbonyl and methyl groups, so the compatibility with fillers, colorants and polar resins is obtained. Significant improvement. The lubricity and dispersibility in the polar management system are better than that of polyethylene wax, and the coupling reactivity is also taken into account. Its performance is very similar to that of Honeywell A-C wax.

characteristic

Oxidized polyethylene wax, also known as OPE wax, OPE wax has unique properties such as low viscosity, high softening point, good strength, no toxicity, good heat resistance, low high temperature volatiles, and dispersion of fillers and colorants. It not only has excellent external wettability, but also has strong internal wetting effect, and also has the effect of coupling reaction, which can improve the productivity of plastic granulation and reduce product cost. Excellent compatibility, good moisture resistance at room temperature, strong chemical resistance, high-quality electrical properties, can improve the appearance of finished products, and is an alternative to montan wax, Sichuan wax, liquid paraffin, and nano-microcrystalline paraffin. , ideal products of pure natural paraffin, polyethylene wax, etc.

Production process

It is made of polyethylene wax through a unique oxidation process.

The main purpose

In the field of plastic granulation, the internal and external moisturizing effects of PVC are relatively balanced. Adding oxidized polyethylene wax to the hard fully transparent and not fully transparent PVC recipe has better wetting properties than other lubricating fluids. It is widely used in PE, PVC cable production, PVC profiles, pipe fittings production, nothing more than high-quality new plastic granulation lubricant. It can also be used as raw material for fabric softener, car wax and leather product softener.

Used as thickener, lubricating fluid, polishing fluid and silane coupling agent for color paste or fillers such as concentrated plastic masterbatch, polypropylene cloth masterbatch, additive masterbatch, and filler masterbatch.

As a lubricant, release agent and organic solvent for the production and processing of rubber and plastic products, EVA wax has excellent compatibility with various vulcanized rubbers, because of its high melting point and high viscosity, it promotes good resin flow and reduces the relative It consumes the driving force of mixing, reduces the adhesion between the resin and the mold shell, facilitates the release of the film, plays the role of internal and external moisturizing, and has good antistatic properties.

It is used as a thickener and anti-friction agent for printing inks.

As a viscosity modifier for hot sols.

It can be used as a processing aid for aluminum-platinum composite films.

Used as leather shoe polish, car wax, varnishing oil wax, car wax, skin care products, match stick wax rod, printing ink wear-resistant agent, porcelain, precision casting agent, oil absorbing agent, sealant mud, Chinese herbal medicine wax pills, heat Fusion adhesive, paint and electrostatic powder matting agent, wire and cable additives, oil and gas well wax absorber, watercolor paint, carbon paper, wrapping paper, printing pad, photosensitive profile cultivation substrate, textile softener, electronic component sealant, crystal triode wpe encapsulant, vulcanized rubber processing aid, vehicle primer, dental material processing aid, steel anti-rust oil, etc.

Organic chemical composition of OPE wax: low carbonyl-containing butadiene-butyl acrylate prepolymer

The molecular structure chain of oxidized polyethylene wax contains certain functional functional groups, so its miscibility with polar resins is significantly improved, which is better than that of polyethylene wax. Performance indicators: non-toxic, non-corrosive products

Excellent organic chemistry reliability

It has very good compatibility with vulcanized rubber, plastic, paraffin and other raw materials. Appearance is light yellow powder, acid value: 7~26, melting point ℃ 98-104, relative density g/cm3 0.95.

The difference between polyethylene wax  and oxidized polyethylene wax

A. The manufacturing is different

The general production methods of polyethylene wax include high pressure and bottom pressure convergence. The wax obtained by high pressure contains carbon bonds, the melting point is low and the wax obtained by bottom pressure is relatively hard, but it is slightly less slippery. Some. Oxidized polyethylene wax is obtained by oxidation of polyethylene wax.

Polyethylene wax and oxidized polyethylene wax are mostly obtained by deep cracking and oxidation of high-density low-pressure polyethylene. Its content is 1000-3000, so it is also called low-content high-pressure polyethylene and low-content oxidized high-pressure polyethylene. It must be made into small pieces, lumps and powders, and the hue is mostly milky white or light yellow.

B, performance difference

Polyethylene wax (PE wax), also known as polymer material wax, is commonly known as polyethylene wax. It is widely used because of its high-quality cold resistance, temperature resistance, acid resistance and wear resistance. In normal production, this part of wax can be added to isoprene rubber as an additive immediately, which can improve the optical translation and production and processing performance of the product. As a lubricating fluid, it has stable physical properties and excellent electrical properties.

The molecular structure chain of oxidized polyethylene wax contains a certain amount of carbonyl and methyl groups, and oxidized polyethylene wax is a new type of high-quality polar wax, so the compatibility with fillers, colorants, and polar resins is significantly improved, and wetting The properties and dispersibility are better than polyethylene wax, and the coupling reactivity is also taken into account. Oxidized polyethylene wax has excellent compatibility with isoprene rubber resin, etc., good moisture resistance at room temperature, strong chemical resistance, high-quality electrical properties, can improve the appearance of finished products, low viscosity, soft High point, good strength and other unique properties, non-toxic, good heat resistance, low high temperature volatiles, excellent dispersion of fillers and colorants, not only excellent external wettability, but also strong internal The moisturizing effect and coupling reaction effect can improve the productivity of plastic granulation and reduce product cost.

At this stage, oxidized polyethylene wax is widely used in foaming materials, and other aspects are less used due to the price. The oxidation of polyethylene wax can significantly accelerate the melting, and here we can see the unique insights of oxidized polyethylene wax.
