Products / Rheology

The high quality and excellent consistency of all the Shell waxes mean that these products are ideally suitable for use in the rubber, ink, PVC, coatings and hot-melt adhesive industries.

Here’s a good example. The Shell Sarawax SX70, which Shell manufactures from natural gas, is an exceptionally consistent and reliable product that can be used for the most precise applications due to its linear molecular structure and narrow molecular weight distribution.
