Polyethylene waxes, are manufactured from low molecular weight, high-density raw materials, designed to give the particular performance characteristics required by industry. There are a variety of methods for producing Polyethylene wax. Polyethylene wax can be made by direct polymerization of ethylene under special conditions that control molecular weight. Another method involves breaking down high molecular weight polyethylene into lower molecular weight fractions. A third method involves separation of the low molecular weight fraction from high molecular weight polymer.
