Hypax OW 152/2

Soft tacky oxidised wax


Product description

Hypax OW152/2 is a soft oxidised wax which has a smooth but tacky consistency, alongside high acid and SAP values. This makes it an ideal product for both reacting on further and for blending with other additives to create a finished product. It is suitable for formulating anything from oil soluble anticorrosive coatings to heavy-duty lubricants.

This product provides a continuous cohesive pale coloured film when applied to polished metal surfaces and is ideal for coating applications where edge protection is essential or where low temperature adhesion and flexibility is required.
