Characteristics and Functions of Fischer Tropsch Wax

Ⅰ. The characteristics of Fischer-tropsch wax

Fischer Tropsch wax, also known as Fischer Tropsch synthetic wax, has the characteristics of high melting point, low viscosity and high hardness. It has an excellent performance in many application fields. Fischer Tropsch wax is a saturated linear alkane and does not contain double bonds, with strong antioxidant capacity and good weather ability.

Ⅱ. The functions of Fischer-tropsch wax

1. Fischer Tropsch wax can be used in plastic processing, such as injection molding, extrusion and granulation.

2. In the production of color masterbatch and modified plastics, Fischer Tropsch wax helps to disperse the filler and has excellent smoothness.

3. Fischer Tropsch wax can be used as the external lubricant of PVC. Fischer Tropsch wax's low viscosity can improve the production speed of products and contribute to the dispersion of fillers when mixing. It plays a better role in the extrusion of high viscosity system. The addition amount is 40-50% less than that of ordinary PE wax, and it can significantly improve the surface gloss of products.

4. When using strong color, the melted can also effectively wet the dye and reduce the extrusion viscosity.

The viscosity of Fischer Tropsch wax is much lower than that of polyethylene wax. Fischer Tropsch wax has good compatibility with PVC and can be competent as an internal and external lubricant. It can be used as a good internal lubricant to effectively control shear conditions, promote flow, control friction and melting properties, so as to improve thermal stability.

At the same time, due to its high crystallinity and high linearity structure, Fischer Tropsch wax makes PVC products obtain good physical and processing properties. According to the needs, the Fischer Tropsch process can synthesize alkanes with different chain lengths, change the molecular weight of products and form a series of products.

Ⅲ. Applications of Fischer Tropsch wax in modified asphalt

Modified asphalt is an asphalt binder made by adding rubber, resin, high molecular polymer, ground rubber powder or other fillers (modifier), or taking measures such as mild oxidation processing of asphalt to improve the performance of asphalt or asphalt mixture.

There are two mechanisms for modifying asphalt: one is to change the chemical composition of asphalt, and the other is to make the modifier evenly distributed in asphalt to form a certain spatial network structure.

Adding Fischer Tropsch wax to compound asphalt can improve the service performance of asphalt, but the asphalt product can not be used in northern areas with low temperature but can be used in road asphalt in East and South China. At present, China's Fischer tropsch wax uses in this field are small and need to be further developed.
