Read ReviewsReview E-Wax NF / Emulsifying Wax

Emulsifying Wax is a preparation of higher fatty alcohols and represents an emulsifier of the self-bodying type, conforming to the National Formulary guidelines / requirements.

Emulsifying Wax produces thick, solid emulsions without the addition of stiffening waxes, even at concentrations as low as 5%, although 10% may provide superior stability.

Emulsifying Wax emulsions show excellent stability in both acid and base media. Stable emulsions with a pH as low as 3 or as high as 13 can be produced. Emulsifying Wax is compatible with anionic, cationic and nonionic systems, making it a truly versatile product. Emulsifying Wax differs significantly from older type self-emulsifying waxes, in that its oil-in-water emulsifying properties are not derived from the presence of auxiliary anionic surfactants of the soap (sulfonated oil or sulfated fatty alcohol type) or from alkalies, gums, etc. Unlike some emulsifying waxes, Emulsifying Wax does not deteriorate on heating, experiencing only a slight alteration in color at temperatures up to 150-152°C for two hours. Under these severe conditions, it may lose 2-3% in weight with slight hardening of the wax.
