Waxes and EVA-copolymers – the hidden heroes

Specialty waxes are central to the production of an array of everyday products, including printed products, window frames, cables, lacquers and toners.

At our state-of-the-art high pressure polymerization and wax oxidation plants in Leuna, Germany, we produce high quality polyethylene (PE) waxes and ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) waxes for diverse end products.
