Micronized modified natural wax

Edition Number :
Edition Date :
September 18, 2020

New micronized product based on renewable feedstock.

This modified natural wax is a sustainable solution offering high performance. It is easy dispersible in water and solvent-based wood coatings and shows excellent matting, as well as slip and scratch resistance properties. Furthermore, it gives wood a smooth, pleasant soft touch feel.  

Used in powder coatings, Ceridust 1060 VITA provides excellent pigment dispersion for bright colors. The modified natural wax furthermore acts as a processing and degassing aid and improves the surface protection. Due to the low melting point and low melt viscosity this additive is also an excellent option for low-temperature curing systems.

Ceridust 1060 VITA has been awarded with an EcoTain label resulting from its sustainability advantages and exceeding market standards.

  • Very effective matting properties in coating applications
  • Smooth surface touch in wood coatings
  • Easy dispersibility for aqueous systems
  • Slip & flowability adjustment

Ceridust 1060 VITA is an excellent dispersing agent for active substances such as pigments, fillers or additives in engineering plastics like PA, PC, polyesters and biopolymers. The micronized dispersing agent optimally coats the pigment particles due its early melting behavior and neutralizes the binding forces of pigment particles. Further Ceridust 1060 VITA prevents pigments from re-agglomeration, eases pigment dispersion and stabilizes the dispersion. The dispersing agent already improves the color strength of plastics parts.

Coatings & Inks:
Ceridust 1060 VITA is easily dispersible in water and solvent-based coatings and shows excellent matting, as well as slip and scratch resistance properties. Used in wood coatings, this sustainable wax creates a smooth and pleasant soft touch surface.
In powder coatings Ceridust 1060 VITA acts as processing aid, provides excellent pigment dispersion for bright colors and improves the surface protection. Furthermore, degassing is enhanced especially in low-temperature curing systems.

Ceridust 1060 VITA is easily dispersible in water and can help for flowability, anti-caking and anti-dusting characteristics in agricultural coatings (e.g. seed and fertilizer coatings).
