KCL Biowax

Novel bio-based materials

KCL Biowax is a water-based dispersion of natural wax, stabilized by microfibrillated cellulose

The MFC improves stabilization and creates optimal rheology for the dispersion, simultaneously acting as adhesion promoter toward any biobased surface. Aqueous wax dispersion can be used to increase hydrophobicity of paper and board products at very low dosage when used as in dispersion coatings.

The wax formulation is safe to use and FDA approved for use in food contact applications. The overall formulation is classified to be outside of the single use plastic directive (SUP) offering a unique solution for natural hydrophobization.
