Ceridust® 8330

Wax compound, based on renewable source

Edition Number :
Edition Date :
September 18, 2020

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.


  • Differentiated biopolymer-based micronized wax
  • Suitable for water-based and solvent-based systems
  • Superior rub resistance properties versus conventional wax-based products
  • Wax dosage reduction of 30 % – 50 % is possible in gravure and flexographic ink
  • Made from renewable resource
