Released by Micro Powders, Inc.

July 30, 2013

MICROSPERSION 6550 is a unique dispersion of a specialized micronized wax which has been dispersed at 40%. No dispersants have been used in order to provide a trouble free, pourable wax dispersion. MICROSPERSION 6550 allows the formulator to use highly efficient micronized waxes in liquid form.

MICROSPERSION 6550 incorporates a unique combination of wax polymers in order to provide blocking resistance and maximum lubricity in aqueous paint or coating applications. Unique polymer chemistry is used in formulating MICROSPERSION 6550 in order to provide a highly efficient wax at low levels to preserve gloss while providing uniform gloss reduction at higher usage levels with very good burnish resistance.

MICROSPERSION 6550 will provide optimum levels of scratch and mar resistance along with excellent slip and mobility in waterborne furniture coatings. Additions of 1.0 - 6.0% (by weight) of MICROSPERSION 6550 will provide optimum performance.

MICROSPERSION 6550 is especially recommended for use in wood finishes (interior or exterior) and will stay in suspension in high or low gloss systems. MICROSPERSION 6550 is also suggested as a non-blocking, high slip wax for water borne printing inks and topcoats.
