Wax compound, based on renewable source
Renewable polymer/wax compound suitable for both water and solvent based coatings and inks.
Ceridust 8330 is a revolutionary, predominantly bio-based additive for all kind of printing inks with a mean particle size diameter of approximately 5.5 μm. Its mix of flexible yet tough polymeric characteristics makes it a powerful rub resistance additive for all types of ink systems. It is easy dispersible in water and solvent-based system with superior rub resistance properties versus conventional wax-based products.
The outstanding rub resistance of Ceridust 8330 can even enable the substitution or reduction of PTFE in ink and coting systems.
By this differentiated biopolymer-based micronized wax, wax dosage reduction of 30 % – 50 % is possible in gravure and flexographic inks to achieve the same rub resistance performance.
