Your solution provider for high-performing waxes
Clariant is a global player in the production of waxes offering a widely diversified portfolio of synthetic and semi synthetic waxes.
Our portfolio comprises Montan wax based products, polyolefin and polymeric based waxes, as well as amide waxes and their micronized grades.
With our long established expertise and focus on research and development, we are in the position to systematically develop innovative solutions, orientated towards the demands of the markets and requirements of customers.
Clariant has been manufacturing waxes for decades and is a major supplier of Amide waxes.
Clariant’s Amide waxes are based on animal and vegetable resources. These lubricants are chemically established mainly on ethylene bis stearamide. These products are also available in micronized form under the tradename Ceridust®.
Clariant is a major supplier of micronized waxes predominantly based on own produced raw materials. Micronized waxes do have a d50 value in the range of 5 - 10µm.
A wide range of waxes can be micronized and even combined into blends to become a Ceridust® grade. Beacause of this versatility and broad range of properties, Ceridust® can be used in many applications.
Clariant has been manufacturing waxes for decades and is a major supplier of Montan waxes.
Montan waxes are esters from montanic acids and are produced from lignite which is extracted, bleached and afterwards esterfied or saponified. Montan waxes consist of unpolar saturated straight carbon chains with a length of 28 – 32 carbon atoms.
Due to their unique chemical structure, Montan waxes can be used in a broad variety of applications.
Clariant has been manufacturing waxes for decades and is a major supplier of polyethylene waxes.
Clariant’s polyethylene waxes are produced via metallocene catalysed polymerisation as well as via traditional Ziegler / Natta polymerisation of ethylene. These products are also available in micronized form under the tradename Ceridust®.
The following categories are available:
Clariant has been manufacturing waxes for decades and is a major supplier of polypropylene waxes.
Clariant’s polypropylene waxes are based on metallocene catalysed polymerisation as well as on traditional Ziegler / Natta polymerisation of propylene. These products are also available in micronized form under the tradename Ceridust®.
The following categories are available:
Clariant has been manufacturing waxes for decades and offers also specialty products classified as
1) Hydrocarbon wax, which is a paraffin wax but with a higher drop point than classical paraffin waxes:
2) Hydrocarbon wax with melting temperature of approx. 100°C and a relative sharp melting point. It is used as additive for electrophotographic Toners.
3) Polymeric wax, which is a polar highly modified wax based on an olefinic backbone. This product is also available in micronized form under the tradename Ceridust®.
4) Branched alkane carboxylic salt:
Clariant has been manufacturing waxes for decades and offers two non ionogenic emulsifiers for waxes with acid numbers up to 40 mg KOH/g (e. g. Licowax® KPS and Licowax® KSL). Wax Emulsifier 2106 contains phenolethoxylates; Wax Emulsifier 4106 contains Alkylethoxylates.
