Hi-WAX comprises a low molecular weight polyethylene (PE) manufactured by direct polymerization, a technique developed by Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. on the basis of Ziegler polymerization technology, and low molecular weight polyolefin made by a thermal cracking process.
Hi-WAX is more stable than other synthetic and natural waxes, and a wide variety of grades are commercially available. These grades are therefore used for a broad range of applications, including those in highly technological areas such as toners for plain paper copying and film condensers as well as traditional uses comprising pigment dispersants, slip agents and mold release agents for the molding of various synthetic resins, modifiers for printing ink and paints, and aids for textile treatment, among others.
Each grade of Hi-WAX possesses distinguished characteristics that can function effectively in their proper use.
An assortment of various types of Hi-WAX: High-density polymerization type, low-density polymerization type, acid-value type, acid-modified type, special monomer-modified type, low-density PE-cracked type and PP-cracked type.
Along with properties such as releasability, viscosity adjustment, compatibility, slip properties and surface modification properties, more than 30 grades are opening up possibilities for their use in new fields through the proper use of these properties and grades.
Hi-WAX is very stable compared with natural and synthetic waxes, so our wax is widely applicable to a range of uses in numerous areas.
