Paricin™ Hydroxyamide Wax Series

The hydroxystearamides are hard waxes that are extremely resistant to alkalis and acids, in contrast to the natural and synthetic ester waxes.   These materials have excellent lubricating and anti-static properties for plastic and metals.  They also have sharp melt points and will function to raise the tack-free point of hot melt compositions.  The high melt point and excellent pigment wetting ability allow for its use as an anti-blocking agent for high-speed inks and coatings.

Applications

Rubber Compounding

Internal lubricant & mold release aid for rubber compounding. Particularly good for butyl rubber compounding with low vapor transmission rates.

Plastics Compounding

Solid pigment dispersion for color concentrates used in plastic compounding. Imparts excellent anti-static properties and uniform color.

Hot Melt Adhesives

High sharp melt points raise the tack-free temperature of hot melt adhesives. Can be used as an alternative to natural and synthetic ester waxes.

Values shown in the above table are typical properties.

Paricin 1 Wax (Methyl hydroxystearate), an internal lubricant and processing aid for Butyl and EPDM rubber stock.  This wax eliminates the surface tack common to butyl rubber.  It has excellent mold release properties, firming agent in cosmetics and specialty inks.  A source of hydroxystearic acid for glycerin-free lithium greases.

Paricin 220 Wax (N-(2-hydroxyethyl)-12-hydroxystearamide), is a brittle, tan, wax-like solid.  Paricin 220 Wax has little solubility in alcohols and is insoluble in most other organic solvents.  It has excellent lubricating and anti-static properties for plastics and metals.  It has a sharp melt point and will function to raise the tack-free point of hot melt compositions.  The high melt point and excellent pigment wetting ability of it allows for its use as an anti-blocking agent for high-speed inks and coatings.

Paricin 285 Wax (N, N’- ethylene-bis-12-hydroxystearamide), is a light brown, opaque, wax-like solid.  Paricin 285 Wax is hard and tough with outstanding water and oil resistance and an exceptionally high melt point.  It has excellent lubricating and anti-static properties for plastics and metals.  It has a sharp melt point and will function to raise the tack-free point of hot melt compositions.  The high melt point and excellent pigment wetting ability of Paricin 285 Wax allows for its use as an anti-blocking agent for high-speed inks and coatings.
