Montan wax is a mineral wax, obtained from coal and shale. They
are easily emulsifiable hard waxes. They can be processed in formulations for a
wide variety of dispersions depending on the individual requirements. The
special derivatives are used worldwide as multifunctional high-performance
additives in a wide variety of industries. The most important applications are
found in the plastics industry, the coating industry and in the cosmetics and
The growing use of the montan waxes for several industrial
applications drives the growth of the market. It is widely used in the daily
chemical industry, automotive industry, electrical industry, carbon paper
industry, machinery industry and many other industries using wax. The montan
wax is characterized by low electric conductivity and has a good insulating
property, it can be coated on the surface of the electric wires and cables.
Apart from that, it can also be used on the fixed porcelain insulator and the
binding wires, as well as the external layer of the mated compensating wires
coatings to improve its electric insulating property, prevent it from being
tacky and extending its service life. However, the increasing global shortage
of available raw materials is causing users to eliminate montan wax products
from their applications, which is most likely to hamper market growth.
Moreover, research and development on efficient and environmentally friendly
technologies for extracting Montan waxes are expected to create lucrative
growth opportunities for the market players.
