    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
