ACumist® synthetic waxes are designed to improve the performance of coatings and inks by influencing various properties including mar resistance, abrasion resistance, slip, rub, matting, adhesion, rheology, release feel, and scratch resistance. These additives come in a small-particle, micronized powder form and are flexible enough for use in water or solvent-based thin film applications.
When used in adhesive applications these additives influence a variety of properties, including application temperature, adhesion and oil migration.
