Wax and more

Wood-based materials

Effects / functions / characteristics

  • addition of special composition waxes to wood-based materials such as chips, strands, fibres, etc.
    • hydrophobic treatment using chemical and physical processes
    • improved mechanical properties in terms of swelling, bonding, and transverse tensile strength

The polar groups contained in the waxes have a high affinity to the wood structure. In addition, the hydrocarbon basic structures have a water-repellent effect.

Areas of application

  • HDF, MDF, OSB, particle chipboard

Delivery programme / Products

  • Montax wax dispersions with solids contents of up to 47 % by weight
