Abstract

Baker Hughes Inc. (BHI) announces a new line of synthetic waxes. These waxes are produced via a technology that better aligns with the EPA’s principles of Green Chemistry and is more energy efficient compared to traditional polymerization processes. This novel process is designed to produce linear, sharp melting waxes with very narrow molecular weight distributions without the need for distillation. These synthetic waxes have a polydispersity as low as 1.01, but typically 1.1 or less. They have molecular weights (Mn) that range from 400 to 1000 with melting points ranging from 65 ◦C to 105 ◦C.

Sharp Melting Synthetic Waxes for Surface Modification of Pigments and Fillers

Baker Hughes Inc. (BHI) announces a new line of synthetic waxes.  These waxes are produced via a technology that better aligns with the EPA’s principles of Green Chemistry and is more energy efficient compared to traditional polymerization processes.  This novel process is designed to produce linear, sharp melting waxes with very narrow molecular weight distributions without the need for distillation.  These synthetic waxes have a polydispersity as low as 1.01, but typically 1.1 or less.  They have molecular weights (Mn) that range from 400 to 1000 with melting points ranging from 65 ◦C to 105 ◦C.

BHI claims the following application benefits:

·         As surface modifiers for Pigments and Fillers to provide improved performance in inks and/or paints.  The new wax can be used alone or in combination with functional or non-functional waxes in a formulated product to provide improved compatibility and stability.  The new wax can be used at levels up to 10% of the pigment or filler by weight in the final formulation.

·         As surface modifiers for Pigments and Fillers to provide improved performance in plastics.  The new wax can be used alone or in combination with functional or non-functional waxes in a plastic or plastic compound to provide improved compatibility and stability.  The new wax can be used at levels up to 10% of the pigment or filler by weight in the final formulation.

·         As lubrication additives...
