MP-26 WAX is a premium grade of micronized synthetic wax with respect to hardness and particle size. This wax is designed for use in surface coatings where an extremely fine particle size along with optimum slip is required. MP-26 WAX is supplied as a micronized powder corresponding to a NPIRI gauge reading of 3.0-4.0 and is recommended for use in oil based and solvent based printing inks and paints.
MP-26 WAX is also available in a finer particle size called MP-26VF. This grade has been processed to a 2.0-3.0 NPIRI grind gauge reading and is recommended for applications where an extremely fine grind is required. MP-26VF WAX works especially well with flushed colors in letterpress and offset inks.
