Neptune 250SD

Oxidized Polyethylene Wax

Product Description:

Neptune 250SD is a finely micronized spherical oxidized polyethylene wax.


Neptune 250SD is recommended for use in liquid ink and coating formulations, including water-based, solvent-based, and UV systems for packaging and gravure inks, general industrial, furniture and floor coatings. Addition of 2-5% Neptune 250SD into the above systems helps to reduce the surface coefficient of friction and imparts excellent mar and scuff resistance.

Neptune 250SD is easy to disperse due to its spherical particle shape and offers good wetting, stability, and higher loading levels in pre-dispersions.
