Released by Micro Powders, Inc.

July 29, 2013

MICROSPERSION 114 is a unique dispersion of finely micronized synthetic wax which has been modified for use in aqueous systems and then dispersed at 25% into an acrylic vehicle. No dispersants have been used in order to provide a trouble free, pourable wax dispersion. MICROSPERSION 114 allows the formulator to use highly efficient micronized waxes in liquid form.

MICROSPERSION 114 is an economical wax dispersion which has been formulated to provide scratch resistance, anti-blocking and lubricity when incorporated into aqueous systems. The unique properties of MICROSPERSION 114 eliminate the problem of "flotation" or "defoamer kickout" which is common when using other types of waxes.

Additions of 2.0 - 8.0% (by weight) of MICROSPERSION 114 will provide optimum performance.

MICROSPERSION 114 is recommended for use in the following areas:

Water reducible 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.
