Enhancing the quality of hard copies
HAS NEVER BEEN SO EASY
We all think before we print, yet in many situations making a hard copy of digital data is still the only way to go. Be it for information security reasons, to conveniently share information with colleagues and customers – or to create a beautifully printed gift certificate for someone’s birthday.
The excellent results achieved with modern laser printers can be made even better with our dedicated wax additives for toner formulations. Our waxes not only serve as highly efficient release agents for aiding detachment of fused toner from the fixing roller. They are also specially designed to enhance the efficiency and overall performance of today’s laser printing systems.
Sharply melting wax additives that are closely tailored to your toner’s needs
When it comes to wax additives for laser printer toner, effective control of melting properties is essential. Unfavorable melting behavior can not only compromise the desired effects on toner release but may also lead to efficiency-impairing flow and adhesion issues.
The waxes from our Licocare®, Licowax®, Licocene® lines provide sharp melting behavior and cover a wide range of high to low melting points. Our unique technology platforms even enable precise adjustment of properties like melting viscosity and molecular weight distribution – allowing us to tailor our solutions even more closely to your needs.
