Montan waxes and special wax blends for engineering plastics
Voelpker is highlighting a wide range of benefits that montan waxes can deliver in compounds based on a variety of engineering plastics including PA, TPU, PBT, PVC and others.
Montan waxes are used as multifunctional. high performance additives in the plastics industry, due to their unique properties. They serve as combined external and internal lubricants and nucleation additives in many types of engineering plastics and processing methods. Partially saponified montan wax esters like WARADUR® OP are suitable dispersion agents for colour masterbatches and also for filled polymers, e.g.: talcum filled PP, fibreglass filled PBT, PA, PC.
Montan waxes are particularly valued for new, technically demanding tasks when it comes to special requirements in terms of the performance of a high performance lubricant.
Particularly suitable for engineering plastics: WARADUR® E, WARADUR® OP.
General Advantage at a glance:
· Internal lubrication, improves flow properties
