Packaging / Corrugated Wax

There are currently three basic processes used by  the packaging industry for applying wax: 1) coating, 2) laminating and, 3) impregnating. The coating process places wax on the surface of a packaging material. Laminating applies wax in between the two materials. And, impregnating causes the wax to be driven in to a packaging material. Waxes are used in everyday paper products. These waxes are designed to impart properties such as gloss, freshness, and moisture, grease barriers. The major types are as follows:

  1. Folding type:Corrugated container and folding carton

  2. Flexible type:Wrapper, label, bag, sack, and pouch

  3. Rigid type:Bottle, jar, can, drum and tube
