Definition and Application Analysis of Oxidized Polyethylene Wax
Oxidized polyethylene wax is a common polymer compound, which is commonly used in coatings, printing inks and plastic additives. It is a white solid, soluble in non-polar solvents, with good oiliness and thermal stability. This article will detail the definition, preparation method and use of oxidized polyethylene wax.

Oxidized polyethylene wax is a kind of polymer compound formed by oxidation of polyethylene molecular chain. It is usually made by reacting polyethylene with air at high temperature and pressure. The molecular structure of oxidized polyethylene wax contains a large number of carboxylic acid and hydroxyl functional groups, which give it good oil and thermal stability.

The main use of oxidized polyethylene wax is as an additive in the field of coatings, printing inks and plastic additives. In coatings, it can improve the gloss and abrasion resistance of the coating; in printing inks, it can increase the adhesion and fluidity of the ink; in plastic additives, it can increase the strength, hardness and heat resistance of plastic products.

In addition, oxidized polyethylene wax can also be used as a textile lubricant, rubber processing agent and petrochemical catalyst and other fields of additives. In textile lubricants, it can reduce the friction coefficient of fibers and reduce the wear between fibers; in rubber processing agents, it can promote the thermal stability and processing performance of rubber; in petrochemical catalysts, it can increase the catalyst Thermal stability and reactivity.

In short, oxidized polyethylene wax is an important polymer compound with a wide range of applications. In the future development, it will continue to play an important role in the fields of coatings, printing inks and plastics.
