In the former article, we talked about the structure and protect method of rubber protecting wax. This article will talk about the importance of rubber protecting wax.
The difference between rubber protecting wax and normal paraffin
Some company use normal paraffin during the production in stead of rubber protecting wax. It will save much cost and get benefit at present but will be harmful in the long term. Normal paraffin can’t resist the corrosion and aging caused by ultraviolet, oxygen and ozone. Worse more, the different oil group cause unstable inner quality of normal wax and incomplete carbon distribution and content. Then Spray, whiting, rainbow and other phenomenons will appear on the surface of rubber.
The rubber will be rough and lackluster, which make the products lack of aging resistance and cause a bad appearance. This will Influence the user’s recognition of the product and harm to the brand. So rubber company should use rubber protecting wax to improve the quality of products.
How to choose proper rubber protecting wax
Choose a proper rubber protecting wax is an important process. You should consider the correctness, practicability and economy. Attention to the following points.
- The grade of rubber products
- The working pressure range of rubber products
- The working conditions of rubber products
- The life span of rubber products
Selection of rubber protective wax focuses on the internal structure that is its carbon distribution structure. Formulate certain rubber protecting wax to make sure there will be enough wax to migrate to the surface. This will cause the aging resistance during the whole procedure. Pay attention to the quality of rubber softener. If the wax content in softener is too high and combined with the rubber protecting wax, there will be spray.
