What is the function of oxidized polyethylene wax? Oxidized polyethylene wax(OPE Wax) is a low molecular weight polyethylene. It is characterized by a high softening point (above 100°C), close to high molecular weight polyethylene, while the melt viscosity and hardness are close to paraffin wax. As a lubricant, it has stable chemical properties and good electrical properties.

Scope of use of oxidized polyethylene wax:
1. In the production process of PVC film, it can improve the gloss and transparency of the film, and improve the longitudinal and transverse toughness of the film.
2. It can be used as a dispersant for inks and paints, and has good anti-settling effects, giving printed matter a good gloss and solid feel.
3. Used as internal dispersant in color processing.
4. It can improve the softening point of wax products, increase the strength of wax products and make the surface glossy. When the candle is lit, it will burn safely, brightly and without black smoke.
5. Used as an internal lubricant during the molding process of PVC profiles, pipes, and plastics, it can improve the toughness of plastic products, make the surface of the products smooth, and have a high pass rate.

Compared with PVC and other external lubricants, polyethylene wax has a stronger internal lubrication effect. In addition, it can also be used in ink, paper, concentrated materials, biodegradable materials, mulch films, candles, etc. It can also be used in paints, hot melt adhesives, adhesives, etc. Oxidized polyethylene wax is close to stone wax, has a higher degree of oxidation, and has better external lubrication properties. The part of its structure that is compatible with plastic in polarity serves as internal lubrication, and the part that is incompatible with plastic in polarity serves as external lubrication and demoulding.
