CRAYVALLAC® WN-3025 is a finely micronized hard polyethylene wax. CRAYVALLAC® WN-3025, with its well-balanced performance properties, is of particular interest to the ink formulator. Here it provides an excellent balance between high rub resistance and good slip, yet with minimal detraction from gloss. CRAYVALLAC® WN-3025 is readily dispersed into coating formulations using a variety of techniques e.g. high-speed dispersers, bead mills and triple roll mills. In general, micronised waxes are best incorporated into coating systems by pre-mixing with the binder. Alternatively, waxes may be added to the formulation immediately following the dispersion stage but prior to the final letdown.
