Waxes, whether they’re natural or petroleum based, have multiple uses in polymer compounding – from an internal lubricant and mold release agent to acting as a static antiozonant for rubber products. The best ozone performance for your application stems from the correct selection of wax — paraffin, microcrystalline, or a blend. Things like solubility in the polymer, migration rate, and temperature are also key parameters to account for.
