The major synthetic waxes available are Polyethylene waxes, which are low molecular weight polyethylene having wax-like properties and made by high-pressure or low pressure polymerization. Furthermore, there are Fischer-Tropsch waxes, which are produced by the polymerization of carbon monoxide under high pressure, a technology used in natural Gas to Liquid (GTL) projects. The hydrocarbon product of FT reaction is distilled to separate the mix into fuels products and waxes with melting points ranging from 45°C to 105ºC.AST PetroChemie has a distinctive range of Synthetic Waxes in its portfolio, which offers unique properties such as high melting point and crystallinity or low melt viscosity.
