Main Products

As most POLYCON products are developed exclusively for each customer, here we introduce our versatile polyethylene wax dispersion products currently in wide use and a rice bran wax dispersion produced using biomass ingredients friendly both to humans and the environment.

Low-molecular weight polyethylene is the most appropriate substance to be used as an additive for inks and paints to perform its abrasion resistance and anti-blocking property by having many features including heat resistance, chemical resistance, high affinity, and high hardness. However, the powder form cannot provide best usability.
POLYCON is specialized in providing liquid wax which is easy to be added by dispersing low-molecular polyethylene with various solvent.
The best additive can be selected by optimizing the characteristics of polyethylene, solvent type, particle size, and non-volatile.
Please select the best additive for your application.

Rice bran wax is a nonedible biomass ingredient produced by degumming crude wax acquired by purifying byproducts of the rice bran oil extraction process, which is subsequently processed with solvents. Remarkably friendly both to humans and to the environment, the material is used in cosmetics to achieve temperature stability and gloss, to adjust texture for a smoother feel on skin, and to add polishing or exfoliating properties. It is also used as a substitute for petroleum wax, which functions as glossing agents for the rubber or plastic materials used in tires, construction materials, and home electronic appliances. But while rice bran wax offers superior functionality and environmental performance, the workability of rice bran wax alone is relatively poor.
POLYCON has created a liquid wax product ideally suited for use as an additive by dispersing rice bran wax in IPA (isopropyl alcohol) and optimizing particle size and viscosity.

Alcohol-Based Additive for Paints and Inks POLYCON RB-1 Catalog(PDF file)

The main ingredient of our rice bran wax dispersion is wax extracted from rice bran (biomass fraction: 100%). Made from a nonedible byproduct of the rice oil extraction process, the environmentally-friendly dispersion helps support a recycling-oriented society.
This additive demonstrates high performance for applications such as anti-blocking, lubrication, abrasion resistance, and scratch resistance.
As a toluene-free IPA (isopropyl alcohol)-based dispersion, the product is highly safe both for humans and the environment.
