As environmental awareness grows, the requirements for green coatings increase. As a result, there are also environmentally friendly wax additives needed to produce “green” coatings. Wax-additives are used to improve different properties of a powder coating. Depending on the wax type, degassing and leveling, scratch resistance or the gloss can be improved. With special wax additives it is also possible to adjust a textured powder coating surface. In this presentation the different wax dispersions that are bio-based or possible to use in coatings with Eco-Labels are introduced. The results of comparison tests in different coatings systems will be shown. Different wax types and properties will be introduced and the results of a study in powder coating primid and hybrid system will be shown.
