Wax Additives: Slip / Anti-slip

Video: Slip / Anti-slip

Wax additives can influence surface slip. If the melting point of the wax additive is below 100 °C, the surface slip is improved. Anti-slip is achieved with polypropylene wax additives, the melting points of which are above 150 °C.





BYK Additive Recommendations
AQUACER 497

Paraffin-based wax emulsion for aqueous coatings, printing inks as well as care products and polishes for improving water repellency and surface slip.

AQUACER 539

Paraffin wax emulsion for improved surface characteristics in aqueous coatings and printing inks.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
AQUACER 593

Polypropylene-based wax emulsion for reducing the surface slip (anti-slip effect) of aqueous coatings and printing inks.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
AQUACER 597

Cationic wax emulsion based on a modified polypropylene wax for formulating release agents for metal die casting.

AQUACER 2650
