MICROSPERSION 31-35 is a micronized polypropylene wax formulated into an aqueous wax dispersion at 35% solids. The particle size is carefully controlled to provide a uniform matte effect in water borne printing inks, paints and coatings. MICROSPERSION 31-35 allows the formulator to use highly efficient micronized wax in liquid form with only mild agitation needed during incorporation.
MICROSPERSION 31-35 uses a unique polypropylene polymer which allows it to impart non-slip properties when added to flexographic printing inks and paints. MICROSPERSION 31-35 will also provide excellent scuff and abrasion resistance.
MICROSPERSION 31-35 is recommended for use in water reducible industrial paints, lacquers and coatings (e.g. wood, metal, or sprayed), as well as water reducible flexographic printing inks (paper or film). The level of addition depends on the gloss control desired. Usually, adding 4%-10% based upon total formula weight of MICROSPERSION 31-35 will give a matte/satin finish.
