What is Paraffin Emulsion?
In Paraffin Emulsion producing, foregoing emulsifier admixed with paraffin in a warmed or molten condition. It is a mixture of Paraffin Wax with desired quantity of water to produce a stable and uniform paraffin emulsion of the desired concentration. Furthermore the pasty or solid paraffin emulsion will readily disperse upon admixture with water.
We can use Wax Emulsion in woodworking industry to protect wood boards (Particle Board, MDF, OSB) from water. Wax Emulsion has Anti-Dust effect which is important while boards are sawing up or grinding. Application of wax emulsion makes the plate surface smoother and softer which more than twofold increases the operating time of the grinding belt.
In addition some advantages Wax Emulsion over melted paraffin should be noted:
Small particle size (about 1-5 Micron) contributes to better paraffin wax penetration into the wood fibre and provides more efficient hydrophobization.
Wax Emulsions mix well with the melamine– and carbamide-based resins. Wax Emulsion acts as a water-repelling agent during the hot pressing of plates. Wax Emulsion decomposes and melted Paraffin Wax hydrophobizates the wood plate. Application of special emulsifiers leads to the decomposition of emulsion even before the bending agent becomes hardened which therefore strengthens the waterproof properties of plates.
Simple method of application cause Wax Emulsion is liquid.
No storage expenses – the storage temperature of the Wax Emulsion is 5°C-30°C, while for the melted paraffin wax is over 60°C.
No transportation expenses – In case of using the Wax Emulsion it isn’t necessary to heat the piping, as no “freezing” occurs inside the pipes.
Application of Wax Emulsion leads to 10-20% reduction of resins without any worsening of physico-chemical properties of plates.
Uses of Paraffin Emulsion
Coatings, ink, coat paper, bristol board and cardboard, waterproof chipboard,water proof fibers, ropes and textiles,protect floors, car bodies and furniture,coat fruits,and vegetables.
Packing of Paraffin Emulsion
Paraffin Emulsion is packed in new or second hand 175 kg drums , ISO tank , flexi tanks. Each 20` container takes 80 drummed emulsion paraffin.
