Wax additives for protecting coated packaging from scratches, scuffs and moisture
Our wax additives for packaging coatings strengthen the protection of surfaces that have to be tough and wear-resistant. They help to preserve the attractive appearance of metal packaging, such as food and beverage cans or metal personal care containers. They can also be used to enhance the coatings of other packaging substrates, such as paper- or plastics-based materials.
Our Ceridust® waxes are not just highly effective at making metal coatings more resistant to scratches and marks but also aid in keeping freshly coated metal sheets from blocking – a common problem during production. We offer PTFE-free solutions with comparable performance to conventional PTFE/PE micronized wax products. In paper coatings, our products can serve to enhance crucial properties like barrier effect, slip, and abrasion resistance.
