MUTTENZ, SWITZERLAND | Clariant, a supplier of specialty chemicals, is offering renewable-based waxes said to combine the demand for more natural, sustainable products with state-of-the-art performance.
Its new Ceridust micronized wax innovations for printing inks, powder coatings, and wood coatings are based on renewable raw materials. Company says they support customers’ ambitions to offer sustainable solutions to the consumer and industrial markets without compromising on quality.
Ceridust 8330TP is a partly-renewable polymer wax for printing inks, which reportedly offers an ideal combination of flexible yet tough polymeric characteristics that renderiit a powerful rub-resistance additive for all ink systems, and can be used with both liquid and pasty inks. Ink has been tested and approved on the largest-scale printing machinery, company says.
Clariant also announces the recent installation of new micronization equipment at its site in Gersthofen, Germany to expand output by a further 15% to meet fast growing demand from the plastics, coatings and ink industries.
“Clariant’s new Ceridust waxes are bringing to life our commitment to the ‘Performance. People. Planet’ values at the heart of our business,” says Bernhard Ehrenreich, Business Line Head Waxes Clariant. “Renewable source-based products that offer the ultimate in cost/performance ratio are what our customers are looking for, and we have met the challenge with natural and renewable wax solutions…that achieve precisely that.”
