Paraffin Emulsion is a blend of Paraffin Wax and water, carefully mixed to create a stable and uniform emulsion with the desired concentration. This emulsion, whether in a pasty or solid state, easily disperses when mixed with water.
In the woodworking industry, Wax Emulsion is utilized to safeguard wood boards like Particle Board, MDF, and OSB from water damage. It also has an Anti-Dust effect, which is particularly beneficial during sawing or grinding operations.
The application of wax emulsion results in a smoother and softer plate surface, significantly extending the lifespan of the grinding belt.
Wax Emulsion offers several advantages over melted paraffin wax. Firstly, its small particle size (about 1-5 microns) allows for better penetration of paraffin wax into wood fibers, resulting in more efficient hydrophobization.
Moreover, Wax Emulsions blend well with melamine- and carbamide-based resins, acting as a water-repelling agent during the hot pressing of plates. The emulsion decomposes, and the melted paraffin wax hydrophobizes the wood plate. The application of special emulsifiers causes the emulsion to decompose even before the bending agent hardens, thereby enhancing the waterproof properties of plates.
Additionally, the simple application method of Wax Emulsion, which remains in liquid form, eliminates storage expenses. The storage temperature of Wax Emulsion is 5°C-30°C, significantly lower than the over 60°C required for melted paraffin wax. Furthermore, there are no transportation expenses associated with Wax Emulsion, as there is no need to heat the piping to prevent “freezing” inside the pipes.
Lastly, the application of Wax Emulsion can lead to a 10-20% reduction in resins without any deterioration in the physio-chemical properties of plates.
Applications of Paraffin Emulsion
