MPP-611 is a finely micronized polyethylene wax that has been processed to a NPIRI grind gauge reading of 2.0-3.0. Additions of 1-3% (by weight) will impart excellent rub and mar resistance and surface slip to printing inks, paints and coatings.
MPP-611 is also available in a finer grade called MPP-611XF. MPP-611XF has been processed to a NPIRI grind gauge reading of 1.0-1.5.
Due to fine particle sizes of MPP-611 and MPP-611XF, prior compounding or grinding is not necessary. Incorporation into most inks or coatings can be readily achieved with high speed mixing equipment. MPP-611 will provide excellent heat resistance and improved solubility resistance and recoatability than micronized synthetic waxes.
MPP-611 is recommended for use in the following; IR, UV, heat set web offset and quick setting sheet fed printing inks; metal decorating paints and printing inks (conventional and non varnish types); coil coatings, powder coatings and high gloss overprint varnishes. MPP-611 has shown to provide excellent anti-blocking properties when added to flexographic and gravure inks, as well as water and solvent based wood finishes.
