Oxidized Polyethylene Wax

Introduction: Oxidized polyethylene wax, also known as OPE wax, oxidized by polyethylene wax after a special oxidation process; OPE wax has a low viscosity, high softening point, good hardness and other special properties, non-toxicity, thermal stability, low volatility at high temperatures, excellent dispersion of fillers, pigments, both excellent external lubrication, but also strong internal lubrication, but also has the role of coupling, which can improve production efficiency and reduce production costs of plastics processing. It has good compatibility with polyolefin resin, good moisture resistance at room temperature, strong chemical resistance, excellent electrical properties, and can improve the appearance of finished products. It is an ideal product to replace Montan wax, Kawasaki wax, liquid paraffin wax, microcrystalline paraffin wax, natural paraffin wax, and polyethylene wax.

Product Details

Oxidized polyethylene wax, also known as OPE wax, is a product obtained through the oxidation of polyethylene. Here are some key points about OPE wax:

1. Chemical Composition and Properties:

  • OPE wax is a low-molecular-weight ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer containing carbonyl and hydroxyl groups.

  • OPE wax has special properties such as low viscosity, high softening point, good hardness, non-toxicity, good thermal stability, and low high-temperature volatility.

  • OPE wax exhibits excellent dispersion of fillers and pigments.

2. Uses and Applications:

  • OPE wax is widely used as a lubricant, dispersant, and coupling agent in various industries.

  • In the PVC plastic industry, OPE wax provides balanced internal and external lubrication and improves the flowability of resins.

  • OPE wax is also used in ink, coatings, paints, rubber processing, textile coatings, paper, and packaging industries.

  • As a lubricant in rubber processing, OPE wax reduces resin-mold adhesion and facilitates easy release.

  • In the pigment industry, OPE wax serves as a dispersant, lubricant, brightener, and coupling agent for concentrated color masterbatches, polypropylene masterbatches, additive masterbatches, and filler masterbatches.

3. Advantages:

  • OPE wax improves the production efficiency of plastic processing and reduces production costs.

  • OPE wax has good compatibility with polyolefin resins.

  • OPE wax exhibits good resistance to moisture, chemicals, and electricity at room temperature.

  • OPE wax can enhance the appearance of finished products.

4. Production:

  • OPE wax is produced by oxidizing polyethylene wax through a special oxidation process.

5. Appearance:

  • OPE wax is a white to slightly yellowish powder with good chemical stability and solubility in aromatic hydrocarbons.

In summary, oxidized polyethylene wax (OPE wax) is a versatile material with numerous applications across different industries due to its unique chemical composition and advantageous properties.
