Nicho Company Limited
WAXES
We can supply various waxes from Baker Petrolite as follows :

Fischer Tropsch Wax
We represent BARECO PX-100, PX-105 Polymer, Fischer Tropsch wax produced by Shell MDS. This advanced generation polymer has a combination of a high melting point, low viscosity and excellent hardness, providing superior performance in a variety of applications.

Key Application Benefits

Adhesives
BARECO PX-105 Polymer is an ideal synthetic wax to use in hot melt adhesives with up to 28% vinyl acetate content EVA. The high melting temperature of the wax imparts heat resistance and quick set time to the adhesive.
Printing Inks and Coatings
When used in a micronized form, BARECO PX-105 Polymer promotes cost effective block, rub and scuff resistance in a variety of printing inks. For coatings, BARECO PX-105 Polymer is a productive matting agent, providing texture and water-beading effect when used in powdered form.
Plastics
FT wax is used by polymer producers and converters in the molding, extrusion and compounding industries.
• BARECO PX-105 Polymer is used as a lubricant in PVC. The low melt viscosity improves
processing throughput as well as assists dispersion of filler during compounding.
• In color concentrates, the unique melt of BARECO PX-105 Polymer effectively wets
pigments and reduces extrusion viscosity.

FDA Status
Petroleum waxes may be refined to meet the purity requirements of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as specified in the basic regulations governing their use. These basic regulations are found in 21 CFR 175.250 and 21 CFR 178.3710.

Microcrystalline Waxes
All petroleum waxes consist of complex mixtures of normal paraffinic, isoparaffinic, and naphthenic hydrocarbons. The physical differences between various types of petroleum wax are due to the relative extent of the three types of hydrocarbons present and the molecular weight of these hydrocarbons.

High Melt Microcrystalline Waxes
Hardness and high melting point are outstanding features of this class of chemically inert and uniform waxes. Baker Petrolite Polymers offers a variety of unique products with characteristics to fit many use needs. Many meet the quality requirements established by the FDA for food grade waxes.
