The Difference Between PE Wax And Oxidized Polyethylene Wax(OPE Wax)

2023-09-04   Pageview:282

What is the difference between PE wax and alkylene oxide wax? Oxidized polyethylene has a certain hydroxyl or carboxyl group on its molecular chain, but there is no molecular chain on polyolefin wax, and oxidized polyolefin has a certain degree of hydrophilicity, while polyolefin wax has no hydrophilicity. Oxidized polyethylene is easy to emulsify, while polyethylene wax is not easy to emulsify. Polyethylene wax (PE wax) and oxidized polyethylene wax are both indispensable chemical materials, which can be widely used in various industries, but they have their own characteristics.

Introduction to the physical and chemical properties of polyolefin wax (PE wax):
Polyethylene wax (PE wax), also known as high molecular weight wax or PE wax for short, is widely used due to its excellent cold resistance, heat resistance, chemical resistance and wear resistance. In normal production, this part of wax can be added directly to polyolefin processing as an additive, which can increase the gloss and processing performance of the product. As a lubricant, it has stable chemical properties and good electrical properties.

The molecular chain of oxidized polyethylene wax contains a certain amount of carbonyl and hydroxyl groups. Oxidized polyethylene wax is an excellent new polar wax, so its compatibility with fillers, pigments, and polar resins is significantly improved, and its lubricity is improved. , the dispersion is better than that of polyethylene wax, and it also has coupling properties.

Polyethylene wax (PE wax) has good miscibility with polyethylene, polypropylene, polycetylene, propylene rubber, and butyl rubber. It can improve the fluidity of polyethylene, polypropylene, and ABS and the release properties of polymethylmethacrylate and polycarbonate. Compared with PVC and other external lubricants, polyethylene wax (PE wax) has stronger internal lubrication.

Analysis of the function of oxidized polyolefin wax(OPE Wax):
Oxidized polyolefin wax has good compatibility with polyolefin resins, good moisture resistance at room temperature, strong chemical resistance, and excellent electrical properties. It can improve the appearance of the finished product and has low viscosity, high softening point, and hardness. Good special properties, non-toxic, good thermal stability, low high temperature volatility, excellent dispersion of fillers and pigments, excellent external lubrication, strong internal lubrication, and also Coupling can improve the production efficiency of plastic processing and reduce production costs.
