Oxidized polyethylene wax is an excellent new type of polar wax. Because the molecular chain of oxidized polyethylene wax has a certain amount of carbonyl and hydroxyl groups, its wettability and dispersibility in polar systems are better than polyethylene wax.

1. Features
Oxidized polyethylene wax, also known as OPE wax, has special properties such as low viscosity, high softening point, and good hardness. It is non-toxic, has good thermal stability, low volatility at high temperatures, and has excellent dispersibility for fillers and pigments. Excellent external lubricity, strong internal lubrication, and coupling effect, which can improve the production efficiency of plastic processing, reduce production costs, have good compatibility with polyolefin resins, and resist at room temperature. It has good wet performance, strong chemical resistance, excellent electrical performance, and can improve the appearance of finished products. It is an ideal product to replace montan wax, liquid paraffin, microcrystalline wax, paraffin wax, polyethylene wax, etc.

2. Production
It is made from polyethylene wax through a special oxidation process.

3. Scope of application
Used as a dispersant, lubricant, brightener, coupling agent for pigments or fillers such as concentrated color masterbatch, polypropylene masterbatch, additive masterbatch, filler masterbatch, etc.
Used as a lubricant, release agent and phase solvent for rubber and plastic processing. EVA wax has good compatibility with various rubbers. Due to its high melting point and low viscosity, it promotes good resin fluidity, relatively reduces the power consumption of resin mixing, and reduces resin Adhesion to the mold, easy to release the film, plays the role of internal and external lubrication, and has good anti-static properties.
Used as a dispersant and anti-wiping agent for ink.
Used as a viscosity modifier for hot sols.
Used as a processing aid for aluminum foil composite paper.
Used as shoe polish, floor wax, glazing wax, car wax, cosmetics, match wax sticks, ink anti-wear agents, ceramics, precision casting agents, oil absorbing agents, sealing cement, traditional Chinese medicine wax pellets, hot melt adhesives, paint and powder coating matting Agent, cable material additives, oil well wax absorber, crayons, carbon paper, wax paper, ink pad, photosensitive material matrix, textile softener, electronic component sealant, transistor encapsulant, rubber processing aid, automotive primer, dental material processing aid  etc.

4. Chemical composition:
Low molecular weight oxidized polyethylene containing hydroxyl and carboxyl groups

5. Technical index:
The product is non-toxic, non-corrosive, has good chemical stability, and has good compatibility with rubber, plastic, paraffin and other materials. The appearance is light yellow powder, acid value: 16-30, melting point 132-140°C. Its performance is equivalent to that of American Honeywell A-C wax.
