Market Definition

Polyethylene wax (PE) is basically a sort of synthetic wax. It is a polyethylene with a high molecular weight made up of ethylene monomer chains. Polyethylene wax can be made using a variety of processes, including ethylene polymerization, due to features such as formulation flexibility, low melt viscosity, high heat resistance, thermal stability, and regulated molecular weight. Plastic additives and lubricants, rubber adhesives, candles, and cosmetics all employ polyethylene wax. It is also utilized in the application of printing inks and adhesives and coatings.
