PE waxes

PE wax

PE waxes are bright, relatively hard and crystalline waxes, which are synthesised from ethylene or polyethylene. In non-polar form they are derived from the low-pressure process with Ziegler-Natta catalysts and in polar form, they are manufactured by melt oxidation.

The PE waxes are used in a variety of applications as flatting agents, modifiers, carrier material, release agents and lubricants. These include printing inks, adhesives, sealants, rubber, plastics, textiles, leather, paper, cosmetics, industrial cleaners, metal processing and road construction.

Residue Wax - Foots Oil

” Foots Oil ” is the oil sweated out of slack wax.
Wax sweating was originally used to separate wax fractions with various melting points from the wax obtained from shale oils. Wax sweating is still used to some extent but is being replaced by the more convenient crystallization process. In wax sweating, a cake of slack wax is slowly warmed to a temperature at which the oil in the wax and the lower-melting waxes become fluid and drip (or sweat) from the bottom of the cake, leaving a residue of higher-melting wax (Foots Oil).
