  • Description

    Carmel Fischer-Tropsch synthetic waxes are specially formulated waxes manufactured in a controlled environment. This process involves using carbon monoxide and hydrogen as feedstock, producing saturated, straight-chain hydrocarbons of consistently high purity and quality. This results in a highly linear molecular structure which gives the wax many desirable properties.

    Our synthetic Fischer-Tropsch product range includes both high-melt waxes used as performance additives in a range of applications, and medium-melt waxes which are used in similar applications to paraffin waxes.

    High-melt Fischer-Tropsch waxes have a unique combination of high melting point, low viscosity and hardness, even at elevated temperatures, which ensure superior performance in a variety of applications. These include:

    • Hot melt adhesives (HMA)
    • Printing inks and coatings
    • Bitumen modification
    • Polymer processing
    • Polishes and textiles

    These products are often used in conjunction with lower melting microcrystalline and paraffin waxes.

  • Additional Information

    Medium-melt FT

    Medium-melt FT waxes are typically used as alternatives to petroleum waxes and exhibit superior properties in a number of applications such as waterproofing of construction board.
