Fischer–Tropsch : Fischer–Tropsch synthesis is a heterogeneous catalytic process for the production of clean hydrocarbon fuels or chemicals from synthesis gas (CO+H2), which can be derived from non‐petroleum feedstocks such as natural gas, coal, or biomass. The most common catalyst is based on iron and cobalt, but nickel and ruthenium have been used.
Polyethylene Wax : Polyethylene Wax is an ultra low molecular weight polyethylene consisting of ethylene monomer chains. The material is used for improving and enhancing the process parameters and properties of the finished products in diverse applications in the plastic industry. It has low molecular weight and features wax-like characteristics. Meltpoint: 235 ° F, 113 […]
Slack wax: Slack wax is a by-products of the refining process which contains oil and wax. This material is the crude wax produced by chilling and solvent filter-pressing wax distillate. It serves as feedstock and that is further refined and blended to create value-added wax products. There are three types of slack wax produced : […]
Mineral Oils : Colorless, odor-less, taste-less mixture of saturated paraffin and naphthen hydrocarbons that spans a viscosity range of 50 to 370 at 100.F. This nearly chemically inert oil is free of nitrogen, sulfur, and oxygen.
Petrolatum: Petrolatum (also known as petroleum jelly or paraffin jelly) can be defined as a semisolid mixture of hydrocarbons, practically odorless and tasteless, and is obtained through the de-waxing of heavy mineral oils. It is used in numerous industries from cosmetics to industria. The material is a mixture of hydrocarbons refined to produce a semi-solid […]
Microcrystalline Wax : Microcrystalline wax is a type of petroleum-based wax derived from the petroleum refining process. Specifically, by de-oiling petrolatum or petroleum jelly. Microcrystalline differs from paraffin wax in that the crystal structure is more branched and the carbon chain is longer. The finer crystal structure makes microcrystalline wax more flexible than paraffin wax […]
Paraffin Wax : Paraffin waxes come from the de-waxing of paraffin distillates. Paraffin waxes have relatively large, brittle crystals (Macrocrystalline) and generally have little affinity for oil. The quality is determined by the extent of the refining process and yiels a product having very low reactivity and toxicity as well as moisture resistance. Paraffin is […]
