Oxidized PE Waxes

TAILOR-MADE FOR YOUR PRODUCTION

Innospec offers a range of high quality oxidized PE waxes based on Innospec’s virgin high quality PE waxes. The products are produced by Innospec’s own catalyst-free mild oxidation process with oxygen from air.

Different levels of polarity, identified by various acid value ranges are available, tailor-made for many applications in polar plastics (PVC) or in water-based applications (emulsions). Innospec’s oxidized PE waxes excel by offering high thermal stability, bright color, and easy emulsifiability.
