FLEXIBLE PACKAGING INDUSTRY
Thanks to its properties, paraffins are commonly used in paper and cardboard recoating. If only waterproof effect is needed, a refined paraffin will be enough. If additional gloss effect is required polymers and paraffin.
If additional mechanical resistance is required, the most suitable product needs and additivation with resins.
If it needs an effect heat sealable it will have to go additivated with polymers.
If it is a question of joining different materials for example paper with aluminium a lamination wax will be necessary.
Bee wax is the most used for decorative candles. Vegetal waxes are used to increase strength and opacity. When price is critical, semi-refinated waxes are the most commonly used. Instead, refinated paraffins are used to increase quality in decoration.
Polyethilene waxes are used to increase strength in lower quantities
