Aqua Poly 215

AQUAPOLY 215 is a finely micronized, cost effective, polyethylene wax which has been modified for easy dispersion into aqueous systems such as printing inks, paints and coatings.

AQUAPOLY 215 is available in two particle sizes. AQUAPOLY 215 has been processed to a NPIRI grind gauge reading of 5.0-6.0 and AQUAPOLY 215VF has been processed to a NPIRI grind gauge reading of 2.0-3.5 for direct incorporation into aqueous systems using high speed mixing equipment. Prior compounding or grinding is not necessary in most cases.

AQUAPOLY 215 has been formulated to provide excellent rub resistance, anti-blocking and slip properties when incorporated into aqueous systems. The unique properties of AQUAPOLY 215 eliminate the problem of "flotation" or "defoamer kickout" which is common when using most types of conventional micronized waxes or polyethylenes in aqueous systems. Additions of 0.5-2.0% (by weight) will provide optimum performance. The level of addition will depend on the end use requirements.

AQUAPOLY 215 is recommended for use in the following areas: Flexographic (paper or film), packaging gravure (paper or carton) and publication gravure printing inks; water reducible wood finishes, coil coatings, industrial finishes and latex paints; aqueous coatings for offset printed folding cartons or paper (Dahlgren, Epic, etc.); aqueous overprint varnishes and can coatings.
