Rawax 1080 is a blend of hydrocarbon waxes designed to protect rubber articles against attackby atmospheric ozone. The blend has a wide molecular weight distribution with a high averagemolecular weight giving a controlled rate of bloom. Rawax 1080 migrates to the surface of therubber article and forms a tough, dry, waxy film that is stable and protective over an extendedperiod of time and in a wide range of temperatures. All Rawaxes contain a small percentage ofanti-blocking additive to help to minimize agglomeration during transport and storage. Rawax 1080 finds use in natural & synthetic rubbers, including Nitrile, Chloroprene & styreneButadiene. Rawax 1080 is recommended for multiple applications in a variety of industriesincluding tyres and certain industrial applications such as belting and hose.
