LUBRIZOL: Wax

April 27, 2012

Lanco™ 1580 LF is reportedly a hard, high-melting, polyethylene wax that can be used for inclusion in coatings for wood furniture and fixtures to enhance surface protection. The wax offers advantages such as excellent scratch and abrasion resistance when used in paints and other coatings for wood finishes.

The wax was designed for use in applications including water-based, solvent-based and radiation-cured systems. Depending on a customer’s requirements, it can be formulated for acrylics, polyurethanes, alkyds and urethane alkyds, polyesters, NC and NC combination systems, and more. In addition, it is reportedly easily dispersed using low-speed mixers.
