Paints and Coatings

Waxes for use in paint and industrial coatings

IGI waxes can be used to enhance a variety of paint and other industrial coating systems.

Waxes can be used in a variety of paint, paint stripper, rust preventative, structural coating, and other industrial coatings.

In paints, waxes can be used to modify film and rheology properties. Paint stripper formulas can find benefit where use of paraffin waxes can prevent the volatizing of solvents.  Since waxes are naturally hydrophobic, they make an excellent addition to rust preventative coatings and structural/architectural coatings. Their relative low viscosity makes blending efficient.  In many applications, slack waxes can provide an economical wax option where cost of components are critical.

Safe, non-toxic, biodegradable options for your coating formulations.

IGI waxes are excellent ways to incorporate non-toxic components into your formula. IGI paraffin waxes are biodegradable too!
