Waxes & Polymers

Waxes and EVA-copolymers – The Hidden Heroes

Specialty waxes are central to the production of an array of everyday products, including printed products, window frames, cables, lacquers and toners.

At our state-of-the-art high-pressure polymerization and wax oxidation plants in Leuna, Germany, we produce high quality polyethylene (PE) waxes and ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) waxes for diverse end products.

Sold under the VISCOWAX® brand, our waxes are used as processing aids to improve product properties, or to enable the use of specific processes.
