The difference between montan wax and polyethylene wax(PE Wax). Montan wax is easy to emulsify and has high gloss. It is suitable for the production of water-based floor wax, car polish wax, shoe polish, jacket oil and emulsification. Silicone oil, etc., can be mixed with other waxes to emulsify. Due to its high acid value, it can also be used with alkaline pigments in the manufacture of copy paper, paints and inks.

Polyethylene wax is divided into powder, white microbeads, and flakes. It is formed by the cracking of polyethylene or the polymerization of polyethylene monomers. It has a high melting point, high hardness, high gloss, and color. Features such as snow and white.

1. Used as internal dispersant in color processing, widely used in polyolefin color granules.
2. Used as pigment dispersant, lubricant and brightener during the molding process of PVC profiles, pipes, pipe fittings, PE and PP to enhance the degree of plasticization and improve the toughness and surface smoothness of plastic products.
3. Used as a dispersant and brightener for inks and paints, especially road marking paints and marking paints. It has a good anti-settling effect and makes the products have good gloss and solid feel.
4. Used in the production of various hot melt adhesives, thermosetting powder coatings, and PVC composite stabilizers.
5. It is widely used in the production of floor wax, gasoline wax, glazing wax, and candles to meet the production of various wax products. It can improve the softening point of wax products, increase their strength and surface gloss.
6. In the rubber industry, improve the surface brightness and smoothness of the product after release, reduce the amount of wax, and reduce production costs.

When polyolefin wax is used in water-based inks and coatings, oxidized polyolefin wax is usually used, and an emulsifier is added to form an emulsion or dispersed in an acrylic resin. Oxidized polyethylene wax improves its hydrophilicity to some extent.
