Emulsions

Driving change

When it comes to its oxidized products, VISCOWAX® is a forerunner in the transformation from solvent-based to water-based products.

Our oxidized PE and EVA waxes contain functional groups, making them polar and easy emulsifiable in water. These waxes are thus predestinated for the use in water-based systems. VISCOWAX® is used as a textile auxiliary, in water-born lacquers and printing inks, and in leather processing, among other things, to improve product properties worldwide.

The Viscowax Edge

Our oxidized EVA-copolymer wax is very easily emulsifyable, due to its high polarity and low melting point.
