Waxrex 725 is a high quality saturating wax for corrugated paperboard. It is a translucent crystalline material in the solid state and an essentially water white, clear liquid when molten. Waxrex 725 comprises a blend of refined paraffin waxes and a carefully selected additive system. Application of this product to corrugated packaging imparts excellent water resistance, high compressive strength in both wet and dry service, scuff resistance and good score line flexibility. A high blocking point minimizes the tendency for blockage during shipping and storage of finished saturated cartons. Waxrex 725 meets applicable Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements for food-related uses.
ExxonMobil waxes are produced and controlled according to the ExxonMobil Product Quality Management System, EN ISO 9000 or equivalent standard.
