11/2017Oxidized Fischer-Tropsch waxes

Oxidized Fischer-Tropsch waxes are characterized by their hydrophilicity and extreme hardness compared to other waxes. Thus far, they are the perfect choice for sophisticated water-based paints and coatings. DEUREX T 8120 M is an oxidized Fischer-Tropsch wax in micro-sized fineness.

DEUREX® TO 8120 M

[TO = Fischer-Tropsch wax, Oxidized | 81 = Reference | 20 = 98% < 20 µm, M = Micro-sized wax]

The particle size < 20 µm allows easy dispersing without coagulation. Due to the hydrophilic character it is possible to dispense of the major part of emulsifier during the production process. Furthermore, foaming will be reduced drastically. The extreme hardness of DEUREX TO 8120 M increases rub and scratch resistance of the final product. Slip will be enhanced as well.

Besides the micro-sized powder, we are also in the position to offer our product as granules: DEUREX® TO 81 G.
