Fortcryl 2072 is recommended for use in liquid self-gloss wax formulations for home use. Due to its low particle size and its balanced monomeric composition, the product gives the waxes formulated with it good gloss, good resistance to trampling (therefore, good durability even with heavy traffic), good resistance to water and neutral cleaning products, thus requiring little maintenance. Due to the high film formation temperature of Fortcryl 2072 (ca 50º C), for the elaboration of these waxes called auto gloss, it is necessary to use methyldiglycol coalescing and tri-butoxyethyl-phosphate. It is also recommended to use an aqueous polyethylene or polypropylene emulsion to improve the non-slip effect. To improve the self-leveling capacity of these waxes manufactured with Fortcryl 2072, it is recommended to use small amounts of a fluorinated tensoactive. It is also recommended to use a biocide for preservation of wax both on the shelf and after its application. Due to its low content of residual monomers, Fortcryl 2072 does not interfere with the essences normally used in these waxes, but we recommend previous tests including stability. For the development of auto gloss waxes, as well as related products with Fortcryl 2072, if necessary support and suggestions of formulas, such as adaptation of raw materials and evaluation processes, please contact the technical department of Oswaldo Cruz.
