Waxes & Q Compound
Apiezon waxes and compounds are known around the globe for their quality, consistency and versatility. Apiezon etch-resist waxes and temporary vacuum sealants are manufactured by a team of specialists at M&I Materials Limited, and supplied to customers via an international network of distributors.
The Apiezon waxes and compounds range features four products, including the popular Apiezon Wax W also known as ‘Black Wax’. All three waxes in the Apiezon range can be used as permanent or semi permanent vacuum sealants or mounting media.
Apiezon Wax W is also a perfect etch resist, perhaps most extensively used as an etch resist in the electronics industry for both semi conductor and printed circuit boards. Its wide operating temperature range and low vapour pressures mean it also has an excellent track record in many other different applications, and is the most versatile product in the Apiezon Wax range.
Meanwhile, Apiezon Q Compound is an effective temporary vacuum sealant that is used as a short term solution in situations which do not allow for the immediate dismantling of a system for repair.
It can be used to seal around the edges of flat unground joints, to blank off parts of an apparatus temporarily or to seal glass cylinders to metal plates to produce temporary vacuum enclosures.
