The Precautions for Polyethylene Wax in the Process of Use

The Precautions for Polyethylene Wax in the Process of Use
  1. Storage: Polyethylene wax should be stored in a dry, ventilated, and dark environment, away from high temperatures and direct sunlight. Keep it away from fire and heat sources to prevent wax from melting.
 
  1. Handling: Handling with care to avoid dropping or damaging the packaging barrel.
 
  1. Leakage treatment: In case of leak, immediately isolated the contaminated area and restrict access. Wear standard work clothes and use a clean shovel to collect the spilled material in a dry, clean, covered container. For large spills, proper collection  and recycling measure should be taken.
 
  1. Dosage: The recommended dosage is 5%-10%. The specific amount can be adjusted based on your company's product system.
 
  1. Compatibility: Polyethylene wax exhibits good compatibility with polyethylene, polypropylene, polyvinyl acetate, ethylene-propylene rubber, and butyl rubber. During use, ensure the selection of an appropriate polyethylene wax model to maintain compatibility with the product.
 
  1. Processing process: In polyolefin processing, polyethylene wax can be directly added as an additive to enhance the gloss and processing performance of the product.
 
  1. Mold release: For materials such as polymethyl methacrylate and polycarbonate, polyethylene wax can improve mold release.
  2. Environmental protection: Adhere to national environmental protection regulations during the use and handling of polyethylene wax to prevent environmental pollution.

The above points outline considerations when using polyethylene wax. I hope it will be helpful to you.
