Slack Wax

Slack waxes have an oil content of from 5 to 30%, depending on the product. They are a welcome by-product of the production of lubricating oils. They can be productively employed in many industrial processes as they are; or they can be mixed, blended, or further refined. The melting points of slack wax varies from 41oF to 66oF. Some examples of applications for slack waxes: in wax emulsions, as binders and water-proofing in artificial woods; in matches; in jar candles; in rust-protection products; in industrial lubricants; in arena-footing; in soil or turf protection; and in fireplace products.

Paraffin Wax

Paraffin Wax is a white or colorless soft solid derivable from petroleum, coal or oil shale, that consists of a mixture of hydrocarbon molecules containing between twenty and forty carbon atoms. It is solid at room temperature and begins to melt above approximately 37 oC;  its boiling point is 370 oC. Common applications for paraffin wax include lubrication, electrical insulation, and candles. In industrial applications, it is often useful to modify the crystal properties of the paraffin wax, typically by adding branching to the existing carbon backbone chain. The modification is usually done with additives, such as EVA copolymers, microcrystalline wax, or forms of polyethylene.

Vinyl Acetate Monomer

Vinyl Acetate Monomer is one of the most essential chemicals used in the manufacture of polymers. Vinyl acetate monomer is manufactured through catalytic conversion reaction of acetic acid and ethylene with oxygen. It is used as an intermediate in the manufacture of various copolymers and Homopolymer such as polyvinyl acetate, polyvinyl alcohol, ethylene-vinyl acetate and ethylene-vinyl alcohol among others. These copolymers are used in various end-user industries such as adhesives, paints and coatings, textiles, paper and packaging among others. Vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) is one of the key ingredients used in the manufacture of furniture glue and adhesives.
