Wax dispersions

Dispersions of waxes in water may be used as slip/anti-mar additives to improve the resistance to abrasion caused by mechanical action, which removes material from the surface of the coating, and as waterproofers to improve water run-off and weatherability.

eChem’s standard product is eChem M 610, a polyethylene wax emulsion which is used in a variety of protective and decorative coatings to impart mar, scuff and abrasion resistance, and also to improve resistance to offsetting in inks and other finishes.
