Microspersion® 930

Released by Micro Powders, Inc.

July 30, 2013

MICROSPERSION 930 is a unique aqueous dispersion of finely micronized polyethylene and emulsified waxes which have been dispersed at 35% wax solids.

MICROSPERSION 930 allows the formulator to use highly efficient and carefully controlled micronized waxes in liquid form.

MICROSPERSION 930 has been formulated to provide a combination of optimum rub resistance and hardness associated with micronized polyethylene, along with the gloss retention provided by emulsified waxes. MICROSPERSION 930 has been found especially useful in high gloss waterbased OPV's. The unique properties of MICROSPERSION 930 eliminate the problems of "flotation" or "defoamer kickout" which is common when using other types of waxes in aqueous systems. Each of the components are designed to provide properties for maximum performance when incorporated into high gloss printing inks, paints and coatings.

Additions of 1.0 - 5.0% (by weight) of MICROSPERSION 930 will provide optimum performance.

MICROSPERSION 930 is recommended for use in the following areas: water based flexographic and gravure printing inks, can coatings, industrial paints and finishes and all types of water reducible overprint varnishes and topcoats.
