ApplicationsHard, high-melting, emulsifiable polyethylene wax for dispersions used in citrus fruit coating and textiles.
As lubricant for the manufacture of glass filament and glassfibre, dispersions of hard and high-melting polyethylenewaxes are added to common synthetic resin dispersions.
For improving slip caracteristics and for protection against scratching during transport of glass bottles (beer, wine etc.) the dispersions of Licowax PED 121 are suitable.
