The POLYBOOST™ line of wax modifying polymers is based on the polymerization of Normal Alpha Olefin (NAO’s). These unique, highly branched materials are effective crystal modifiers for most hydrocarbon waxes and non-polar resins. POLYBOOST™ can be used as an alternate additive to Stearic Acid or Microcrystalline Wax. In fact, POLYBOOST™ has been described as a “hyper-micro wax” due to its extremely branched molecular structure.
The following benefits can be achieved by adding relatively small additions – less than 3% by weight.
- Increased opacity
- Dimensional stability
- Heat resistance
- Increased oil binding characteristics
- Improved dispersion of colorants
The POLYBOOST™ line includes the following products:
|POLYBOOST™ 130*||Recommended for use with waxes having melting points below 140°F.|
|POLYBOOST™ 165*||Recommended for use with waxes having melting points above 140°F.|
