In response to global raw material shortages and skyrocketing market prices for montan
wax-based additives for use as a lubricant in polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and other
thermoplastics, Struktol Company of America,
a manufacturer of process additives for the plastics and rubber industries, has recently
introduced V-Wax E and V-Wax OP additives as a drop-in replacement for comparable montan
wax-based products.

This new refined, organic wax products are designed to be drop-in replacements for Montan
Wax E and Montan Wax OP. According to Struktol, they provide equivalent processing and
 performance in a variety of applications and their inherent chemical composition meets
current specifications for montan waxes.

"These new products will allow our customers to seamlessly replace montan waxes with a
natural, organic-based replacement without sacrificing any of the performance benefits they
 have become accustomed to in their applications," said Mike Fulmer, Struktol's Product
Manager for Plastic Additives.

The new products are primarily targeted at calendered PVC sheet for blister packaging.
Potential applications for V-Wax E and V-Wax OP are lubricants and release agents for PVC,
polyolefins, polyamides, thermoplastic polyesters, polyurethanes, thermosets, and other
plastics. In addition, these products are used as pigment carriers in coatings for paper,
electronics, and polishes.
