Montan wax is a type of wax containing a long chain of a fatty acid and an alcohol. Montan wax finds use in high-performance applications owing to its excellent properties. For instance, the montan wax possesses fine lubrication property which is why it is extremely useful for plastic industry. Montan wax when used as an internal lubricant, improves flow-ability of polymers and also lowers the demolding force on removal. Besides, montan wax also acts as nucleating agents in polymers in order to reduce the cycle time. The molecular structure of montan wax exhibits low volatility and good thermal stability. The use of montan wax improves the mechanical properties of polymers. The montanic acid ester, a generic name for montan wax is also used as a protective layer on fruits. The fresh fruits are surface treated with the montanic acid ester in order to reduce the loss of water from fruits. The montan wax is non-toxic and can be used as a substitute to the carnauba wax. In the paper industry, montan wax is considered to be an important ingredient owing to its absorbent and colour solubility properties. Also, montan wax finds application in electrical and electronics industry, where it is used as a coating material for wires and cables. The low electric conductivity coupled with the excellent insulating property of the molten wax, makes it useful in electrical and electronics industry.
