Polyethylene Waxes

NuCera Solutions’ POLYWAX™ polyethylenes are fully saturated homopolymers of ethylene that exhibit a high degree of linearity and crystallinity. These synthetic waxes have narrow molecular weight distributions with a typical polydispersity (Mw/Mn) of 1.08. Product densities at 25ºC range from a low of 0.93 g/cc for POLYWAX 400 polyethylene to a high of 0.98 g/cc for POLYWAX 3000 polyethylene. In application, POLYWAX polyethylenes exhibit sharp melt point, fast recrystallization, low melt viscosity, excellent heat stability and resistance to chemical attack.
