CRAYVALLAC® WS-4700 is a 40% active dispersion of polyethylene wax in isopropanol. The low viscosity and high active content of this dispersion, together with freedom from dust, assist the efficiency of manufacturing processes. CRAYVALLAC® WS-4700 provides the formulator with the means of controlling the frictional characteristics of a coating as well as enhancing its surface protection properties. CRAYVALLAC® WS-4700 is readily dispersed into coating formulations using a variety of techniques. It also retards the settlement of pigments and assists in their re-dispersion. The use of pre-dispersed waxes, such as CRAYVALLAC® WS-4700, avoids the inconveniences commonly associated with micronised powders. Dispersions by nature are also easier and more efficient to incorporate, as they require less intensive processing.
