Waxes for explosives

Paraffin or microcrystallin waxes are commonly used in low percentage for the desensitization and lubrication of press-loaded or cast-loaded powder explosives, polymer-bonded explosives (PBX), boosters and detonating cords.

Polwax is the largest producer of refined and deodorized paraffin waxes in the whole Eastern Europe. Beside as lubricants and desensitizers, their paraffin filtrates and refined waxes may also be used as a component of the oil-phase in the water-in-oil emulsion explosive systems

Polwax paraffin natural microcrystalline and Brasca ABpolwax F-T Fischer-Tropsch microcrystalline waxes may be used as desensitizers in the manufacture of detonating fuses.

Ammunitions refilling

Polwax or Brasca ABpolwax paraffin waxes may also be used by explosive manufacturers who have installed a paper coating calender or extruder, to coat special paper or cardboard used for the wrapping of ammunition refilling (e.g. pressed refilling, etc.) as a water moisture barrier.


To the same extent, SK range of modified polyolefins Evatane® EVA, Lotryl® EMA, EBA, Orevac® and Lotader® adhesive resins, and Evasin® EVOH oxygen barrier resin may be used by explosive manufacturers who have installed a coextrusion equipment for the production of special protective film for explosives.


4cleanpure® and 4cleanmix® by 4clean are non-abrasive, highly efficient and versatile purging compounds for a perfect cleaning of your extruder – preventing defective extrusion.
