MICROSPERSION 214-50 is a finely micronized synthetic wax which has been modified for use in aqueous systems and then formulated into an aqueous wax dispersion at 50% solids. It is intended as a general use stir-in wax additive. MICROSPERSION 214-50 allows the formulator to use highly efficient micronized waxes in liquid form. MICROSPERSION 214-50 is versatile, economical, and extremely easy to add to a formula with only mild agitation needed during incorporation.

MICROSPERSION 214-50 provides good scratch resistance, anti-blocking and lubricity when incorporated into aqueous systems. The unique properties of MICROSPERSION 214-50 eliminate the problem of "flotation" or "defoamer kickout" which is common when using other types of wax dispersions.

Additions of 1.0 - 4.0% of MICROSPERSION 214-50 will provide optimum performance.

MICROSPERSION 214-50 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.
