The Glissawax Range

 

Glissaspray 8

A white spray micronized FT wax powder

Properties: It is a hard material with a penetration reading of 1 (0.1mm) and an average particle size of 5 – 9 microns; typically 6 microns. Glissaspray 8 is quite matting (for a less matting effect we would recommend Glissawax PSF-7) and it enhances adhesion properties of the formulation for scratch, rub and wrinkle resistance.

Applications: Glissaspray 8 is most commonly used in liquid printing inks applied to substrates such as Nitro-Cellulose films and Aluminium foils. It is also used for general use in standard powder coatings, hard finish waterbased coatings, standard coil coating formulations and backing-surface coatings for metal applications.

In summary, Glissaspray 8 is a popular, all-purpose, sprayed formulation wax used across all application areas mentioned, it can also be recommended for use in paste inks.

Glissawax PSF-7

A white, air micronized PE wax powder

Properties: Glissawax PSF-7 is a hard material with a penetration reading of 1 – 3 (0.1mm) and an average particle size of 7 – 9 microns, typically 8 microns. PSF-7 is used for slip and rub resistance and is only mildly matting (recommended for preserving gloss).

Applications: It is used in standard liquid and paste printing ink formulations and high quality metallic printing inks (e.g. gold and silver coloured inks). PSF-7 is also used in waterbased coatings and powder coating formulations. It can also be used in wood finishes where water resistance and surface modification is important.

Glissawax PSF-7 is an excellent, all-purpose, micronized wax, offering a higher gloss finish compared to Glissaspray 8.

Glissawax Extra

A white PE and PTFE micronized wax powder blend

Properties: Glissawax Extra has an average particle size of 6 – 9 microns, typically 8 microns. It has a trace of PTFE embedded in the wax blend to improve its strength and physical resistance against tough wear, as well as offering slip control.

Applications: Glissawax Extra is used in powder coatings, waterbased coatings and liquid printing inks applied to hard wearing white goods and plastic packaging.

The Glissawax Extra wax blend benefits from a modest amount of PTFE and is therefore an economical solution to solving many common hard ware requirements. For harder wearing requirements, we would recommend using Glissawax Plus.

Glissawax Plus

A white PE and PTFE micronized wax powder blend

Properties: Glissawax Plus is a PTFE enhanced wax powder blend with a penetration reading of 1 (0.1mm) and an average particle size of 4 – 7 microns, typically 6 microns. It is used for its adhesion properties promoting scratch and rub resistance.

Applications: Glissawax Plus is used in metal and coil coatings for the construction industry and in powder coatings and liquid printing inks for difficult applications, such as irregular shaped plastic containers (e.g. margarine tubs). Also used in waterbased coatings where adhesion and high specification on scratch and rub resistance is essential.

Glissawax Plus is very popular with our customers as it offers a higher ratio of PTFE to PE wax blend, providing a superior hard wearing finish across a number of different applications, but again at economical rates.

Glissamide 14010

An off-white, non-toxic, fatty amide synthetic wax powder blend of NN ethylene and Bis Stearamide

Properties: Glissamide 14010 has an average particle size of 7 – 14 microns, typically 10 microns. It is used to promote lubrication for PVC and LDPE manufacturing, anti-scuff, mould release, slip, and as a surface sealer in undercoats.

Applications: Glissamide 14010 is commonly used in basecoats, primers and wood finishes, plastics and plastic films, printing inks, gloss reduction coatings, paints, and inter-coat coatability in powder coatings.

Glissamide 14010 is our most popular amide wax; however, we can also provide this wax in a range of particle sizes up to a prill.

Glissawax CP20

A fine, white, micronized PP/PE wax powder blend

Properties: Glissawax CP20 is a hard material with a penetration reading of 1 (0.1mm) and an average particle size of 5 – 9 microns, typically 7 microns. It is used to promote excellent scratch and abrasion resistance and has increased matting abilities compared to other standard waxes. It is known for its hard finish.

Applications: Glissawax CP20 is commonly used in matt coatings, coil coatings, can coatings and wood finishes.

Glissawax CP20 is very similar to Glissawax PEP 15 in that it offers a hard and durable finish, however, where a more glossy finish is important; we would recommend PEP 15 over CP20.

Glissawax PEP 15

A fine, white, micronized PP/PE wax powder blend

Properties: Glissawax PEP 15 is a hard material with a penetration reading of 1 (0.1mm) and an average particle size of 5 – 8 microns, typically 7 microns. It is used to promote excellent scratch and abrasion resistance and slip control. It is known for its tough finish.

Applications: Used in waterbased coatings, can coatings, powder coatings and wood finishes.

Glissawax PEP 15 is very similar to Glissawax CP20 in that it offers a hard and durable finish; however, PEP 15 is better at protecting gloss compared to CP20 which is more matting.

Glissawax 8015

A synthetic white/off-white micronized PE wax powder

Properties: Low melting wax with an average particle size of 5 – 15 microns, typically 9 microns.

Applications: Typically used in the under-seal of motor vehicles as it sets the waterproof and anti-rusting formulation at a lower temperature than other waxes.

This popular wax powder provides the motor industry with an energy saving solution to their rust prevention treatment due to low temperature cure.

Wax Emulsion

A translucent, off-white, aqueous, non-ionic emulsion of oxidised PE wax

Properties: We offer two wax emulsions, produced in a mobile, easy to handle form with an average particle size of less than 0.06 and a polydispersity of 5.

Applications: Our Wax Emulsion E18/40N is typically used in general formulation work e.g. floor polish/maintenance, paint and lacquers, paper and board, varnish, textiles, and wood/timber protection coatings. Our Wax Emulsion 3700 is recommended for more complex work e.g. plastic wallpaper coatings, because it helps to promote scratch and rub resistance essential for a longer lasting, durable interior wall surface.
