    NuCera Solutions: Your global partner for innovative specialty waxes and polymers. Whether you need to improve the performance of your Coatings, Adhesive and Plastics products or create new and exciting products, NuCera Solutions is here to help. 

    Coatings

    NuCera waxes are the key to coatings that go on smooth and last longer. You can count on the high purity and on-purpose production quality to enable the following in industrial, waterproofing, inks & can coatings:

    • Linearity & high crystallinity for improved slip, high chemical resistance, and excellent heat stability.
    • Higher Rub resistance for better appearance and easy cleanability in ink systems.
    • Improved scratch resistance & reduced mar, along with a matting effect
    • Products which are FDA indirect food contact approved
    • More control for formulators due to well defined melt points

    Product highlight: POLYWAXTM 655 & POLYWAX 655 T10

    NuCera’s technology is unique in that it produces a narrow molecular weight polyethylene wax with NO branching.

    Features & Benefits:

    • Completely Linear
    • Extremely Hard & Crystalline
    • Narrow Melt Range
    • Low Melt Viscosity
