Released by Micro Powders, Inc.

July 29, 2013

AquaBead 325E is an anionic wax emulsion specifically formulated for aqueous exterior stains, sealers, paints and coatings. Comprised of a combination of paraffin waxes, AquaBead 325E provides excellent initial and long lasting water beading as well as weather and moisture resistance.

AquaBead 325E has a unique emulsification system which contributes to its immediate hydrophobicity. Levels of addition range from 3.0% to 10.0% of total formula weight. Usage levels are determined by formula solids, vehicle type and end use requirements.

AquaBead 325E is ideally suited for use in latex emulsion systems and can be easily stirred in using any type of mixing equipment.

Unlike wax powders, AquaBead 325E will remain in a stable suspension in latex emulsion based paints or stains.


All types of aqueous paints, stains and coatings applied over wood, metal, masonry or leather. Water reducible flexographic and gravure printing inks and coatings.
