We have other products such as emulsions of paraffin, carnauba wax and polyethylene wax, as well as gum rosin, ester of glycerol, white oils, polyethylene wax and petroleum jelly.
An emulsion is a mixture of two immiscible liquids in a more or less homogeneous way. One liquid (the dispersed phase) is dispersed into another (the continuous phase or dispersing phase). Many emulsions are oil or water.
Paraffin emulsions are aqueous solutions of paraffins (mainly at 50%) used for cold paraffin application.
Carnauba wax emulsions have applications in cosmetics, floor polishers and leather. They can be used in the treatment of surfaces for oiled and waxed floors, wood and cork, tiled floors and furniture.
They are suitable for adding to the floor maintenance water. In addition, Hernauba PQN-40I can be used for the treatment of hides and tanned in general, as its application gives the skin an excellent shine.
Polyethylene waxes are obtained through the polymerization of ethylene, it has excellent physical-chemical resistance characteristics when compared with natural and paraffinic waxes.
Aqueous emulsions of polyethylene waxes provide hardness, shine, abrasion resistance, scratch and mark resistance, lubrication and enhance touch.
The gum rosin is a natural amber resin obtained from conifers by exudation from growing trees or during the extraction of stumps. The `pine resin has been the traditional mass glue agent of paper. Currently its main uses are in the gum industry, as a fundamental component of the base gum and in the cosmetic industry for the manufacture of depilatory wax.
As a curiosity, we can say that Baltic amber is fossil gum rosin. Gum rosin, along with potassium and lactose chlorate, is used to obtain white smoke that announces to the world that the Catholic Church has a new pope.
White oil is a mineral oil obtained from paraffinic fractions. The process is by vacuum distillation and several subsequent refining processes, including final purification with catalytic regeneration. Mineral oil, also called paraffin oil or liquid paraffin oil, has no color, smell, or taste. It is widely used in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, chemical, food, rubber and plastic industries.
Polyethylene wax is obtained from the polymerization of ethylene. It is the simplest and most chemically inert polymer and is characterized by a low viscosity that makes it look like a wax. Polyethylene wax is widely used in the masterbach sector as well as external PVC lubricant and hotmelt adhesives.
Petroleum jelly is a mixture of paraffin and mineral oil especially for industrial and pharmaceutical applications.
