Fischer-Tropsch wax - lubricant and release agent
What is FT wax?
Fischer-Tropsch waxes are synthetic waxes that are produced from natural gas and air using the Fischer-Tropsch process. They consist mainly of unbranched hydrocarbon chains and have a linear structure, which results in a low viscosity. In addition, they exhibit an increased hardness and high temperature resistance compared to other waxes. Fischer-Tropsch waxes provide many advantageous product properties, which are useful in many applications.
