Composition of Micro Crystalline Wax and Its Function in Rubber Protection

1. What is micro crystalline wax composed of?

Micro crystalline wax is a kind of refined synthetic wax with similar microcrystalline properties. It has the characteristics of good luster, high melting point and light color. Its structure is compact, firm and smooth. It can be melted with various natural waxes and can improve its low melting point of wax, improving the properties of the coarse wax.

The micro crystal wax itself is as white as jade, and it is rubbed to produce light, which has a very favorable influence on the production of light-colored products. The micro crystalline wax has good oil absorption performance.

It can form a stable and uniform paste with various solvents and waxes, and has emulsifying properties. It can be used as a processing aid for shoe polish, car wax, polishing wax, floor wax, glazing wax, Chinese medicine pills, protective agent, candles, wax toys, dental materials, cosmetics and so on.

In addition, the use of this raw material in the formulation of wax paper can make the handwriting clear and the friction resistance significantly improved. Micro crystalline wax has a wide range of uses. It is the latest achievement of synthetic wax in the 1990s. It can be used to replace the same kind of Gute wax and reduce the cost by about 50%.

Paraffin wax, also known as crystalline wax, is a mixture of hydrocarbons with 18 to 30 carbon atoms. The main components are straight-chain alkanes (about 80% ~ 95%), and a small amount of alkanes with individual branches and monocyclic cycloalkanes with long side chains (the total content of both is less than 20%).

Paraffin wax is a kind of flake or needle crystal obtained by solvent refining, solvent dewaxing, wax freezing crystallization and press dewaxing from the lubricating oil fraction of crude oil distillation, and then deoiling and supplementary refining.

According to the degree of processing and refining, it can be divided into three types: fully refined paraffin, semi-refined paraffin and crude paraffin. Each type of wax is divided into different varieties according to the melting point, generally every 2 ℃, such as 52, 54, 56, 58 and other brands.

Crude paraffin has a high oil content and is mainly used in the manufacture of matches, fiberboard, and canvas. Fully refined paraffin wax and semi-refined paraffin wax are widely used, mainly used as components and packaging materials for food, oral medicines and certain commodities, and coating materials for baking containers.

It can be used for fruit preservation, electrical components insulation, improve rubber anti-aging and increase flexibility. It can also be used for oxidation to generate synthetic fatty acids.

2. What is the role of micro crystalline wax in rubber protection?

The role of micro crystalline wax in rubber protection. Rubber protective micro crystalline wax products are used as physical antioxidants for the production of radial tires, bias tires, engineering tires and other rubber products. Rubber protective micro crystalline wax is widely used in tire companies.

Rubber protective wax is a kind of special wax application in China, the market is relatively mature, the demand is large, and the variety with the most development potential in the future.

The production and consumption of rubber products such as tires, various tapes, transmission belts, seals, shock-absorbing rubber and safety products have contributed to the increase in the consumption of rubber protective wax.

As well as rubber protective micro crystalline wax, there is also an explosive compound wax polyethylene wax that has a good market prospect. Because of the specificity and particularity of special polyethylene wax, it is only a special wax suitable for a certain industry with high technical content.

Micro crystalline wax can effectively increase the brightness and smoothness of the product. Different varieties of micro crystalline wax are selected and the glossiness of their corresponding products is very different.
