Wax emulsion for panel boards Aquawax 88 Gen
he new Aquawax 88 Gen (F4.40) was specially formulated for improved resin/glue compatibility.
Additives in a wax emulsion serve a double purpose. On one side they are needed to bind the wax with the water. On the other hand, they are needed to assure a good compatibility with glues, hardeners, … Due to the availability of new emulsifier systems we are able to reduce this additive component substantially and this new formulation can achieve an excellent chemical balance with a lower quantity of additives (EMULCO still assures a six months stability). Additives have a negative effect on your water repellency because they have a hydrophilic character. In the press, the water evaporates and this means these additives will attract water by nature again. By lowering the additive content, and equally increasing the wax content, a double effect of quality improvement is achieved.
