ULTRALUBE® Surface Modifiers

ULTRALUBE® wax additives are standing for surface modification for customized paints and coatings. Tailored to the application areas of coatings, graphic arts, concrete, and architecture as well as their applications such as clear coats, pigmented systems, overprint varnishes, flexo printing inks and cementitious systems.

With ULTRALUBE® you can influence and optimize the surface properties in coating systems as desired.      

Our many years of experience in wax emulsification results in products with outstanding properties. By using the ULTRALUBE® product portfolio in aqueous coating systems, optimized physical and visual properties are achieved in addition to excellent resistance.

With ULTRALUBE® wax emulsions it is possible to achieve or modify surface properties such as scratch, abrasion or block resistance without changing the gloss level of the resulting coating. Furthermore, semi-gloss surfaces can be realized with ULTRALUBE® products without the need for additional matting agents. Particularly noteworthy are the emulsifier-free ULTRALUBE® wax specialties, or those produced on the basis of modified HDPE waxes. This leads to very good blocking resistance in paint systems without negatively influencing the recoatability.


Environmentally sound coating systems with ULTRALUBE®

The development of ULTRALUBE® wax additives, focusses on the use of environmentally compatible raw materials that are as physiologically harmless as possible. The latest developments lead to ULTRALUBE® types with further increased ecological compatibility to meet the demand for more environmentally friendly coating systems. Like the classic established ULTRALUBE® types, the new developments are VOC-free, APEO-free, formaldehyde-free and heavy metal-free and are also formulated without amines.

With the selection of raw materials, the formulation and process knowledge, the prerequisites for various international requirements, such as FDA 175.300, BfR XIV and XXXVI, Swiss Ordinance, Plastic Directive, etc., are fulfilled.
