Polyethylene wax with drop melting point 130ºC is extremely hard and must be diluted or prediluted in 100% aromatic solvent (xylene, shellsol A, etc.) at least 25 minutes in a water bath
Pure polyethylene wax increses abrasion resistance and used as dry lubricant. Blended with other waxes provide a non-sticky finish and improves wearing, scratch and impact resistance.
