Is it okay to use low molecular weight wax for PE color masterbatch? In the production process of color pellets, due to the poor dispersion of fine powder, it is easy to agglomerate, which greatly affects the difficulty of extrusion during the production process, and the gloss, processing performance and other aspects are relatively poor. To put it in perspective, how should we solve this problem?

Related applications of polyethylene wax(PE Wax):
(1) Concentrated pigments and filler granules. Polyolefin wax is added as a dispersant in the pigment processing process and is widely used for polyolefin pigments. It has good compatibility with polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride, polypropylene and other resins, and has excellent external and internal lubrication.
(2) During the molding process of PVC plastic pipes, polyethylene wax is added as a dispersant, lubricant and brightener to enhance the degree of plasticization, improve the toughness and surface smoothness of plastic products, and add a PVC compound stabilizer widely used in production.
(3) Polyethylene wax improves the light resistance and chemical properties of ink, and can be used as a carrier for pigments. It can improve the wear resistance of paints and inks, improve the dispersion of pigments and fillers, and has a good anti-settling effect. It can be used as Flattening agent for paints and inks, giving products a good gloss and solid feel.
(4) Wax products are widely used in the production of floor wax, vapor wax, glazing wax, candles, crayons and other wax products to increase the softening point of wax products and increase their strength and surface gloss.
(5) Cable materials are used as lubricants for cable insulation materials, which can enhance the diffusion of fillers, increase the extrusion rate, increase the mold flow rate, and facilitate demolding.

Wax powder plays the role of lubrication and dispersion in the pigment system, increasing the compatibility with resins such as polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride, polypropylene and other resins, and polyethylene wax has excellent cold resistance, Heat resistance, chemical resistance and abrasion resistance, when added to the color pellet system, can increase the extrusion of the color pellets, improve production efficiency, and at the same time increase the gloss and processing performance of the product.
