DEUREX T 18 K
Micro-crystalline wax, fine granules
DEUREX T 18 K is a micro-crystalline wax which is approved for direct food contact. Compared to other commercial micro-crystalline that are delivered as slabsheavy and bulky, DEUREX offers the product as fine granules. This form of delivery eases the handling during production a lot.
The product is approved as food additive E 905 and therefore is applied in the food industry. It protects surfaces of sweets, chewing gum, cheese, fruits and other food.
During PVC processing it is used as lubricant and it can be applied for packagings with direct food contact (e.g. bread, vegetables, meat). In the rubber industry DEUREX T 18 K is used due to its sun and ozone protection as well as due to its migration behaviour. A high resistance against oil and cold combined with an increased rub resistance ake this product very interesting for the cable industry.
The wax can also be used in the production of hot melts that are applied in industries with direct food contact. The open time of hot melts can be adjusted, adhesion will be increased and stringing will be avoided.
DEUREX T 18 K is also suitable for paints and coatings with direct food contact. It increases rub and scratch resistance and improves slip.
