Wax Emulsion is a mixture of one or more waxes in water. As we all know that waxes are immiscible, but they can be brought together stably by using surfactants or emulsifiers. Surfactants and emulsifiers can be cationic, anionic or non-ionic. The preparation of wax emulsion takes place above the melting point of the wax; hence the process is called wax emulsion. Depending upon the applications, a wide range of blended wax emulsion are available. It offers lubrication along with the advantages such as abrasion resistance, anti-blocking, water repellence, and matt finish effect.

The key market driver for the wax emulsion market is the increasing demand from paints & coatings and adhesives & sealants end-use industry. In paints and coating, it provides an excellent water-proofing solution as well as protection from the harsh environmental effects; thus, it is highly preferred.
