2 Benefits of working with Sasol
Sasol is a global company Our values The Sasol Wax Difference Safety and Quality Formulating expertise Current product offerings

3 The Sasol Wax Group Wholly owned by Sasol Ltd, South Africa (NYSE: SSL) Wax Group Head office in Hamburg, Germany Main wax production: Hamburg, Germany Petroleum based paraffin wax Sasolburg, South Africa Synthetic paraffin wax Richmond, CA Blends, emulsions Marketing offices: Europe North America Malaysia Australia 1300 employees Sasol is a South African petrochemical company. It is listed on the New York stock exchange. It produces 40% of South Africa’s needs for gasoline. Other products include polymers (PE, PP, PVC), various solvents, surfactants, fertilizers, and also wax. Sasol is known for commercializing the Fischer-Tropsch technology using coal or natural gas as feedstock to produce these products. Sasol has 30,000 employees globally. The HQ for Sasol Wax is in Germany. The production facility there uses slack waxes, de-oils them, and then blends to produce custom products for a wide variety of applications. The facility is South Africa produces synthetic waxes using the FT process. These products are not by-products of any process. They are first intention products produced on-purpose.

4 The Sasol Values apply to all Sasol companies
Focus on Customers We listen to our customers, and meet their requirements with our best products, service and support systems Winning with People We respect and encourage the contributions of our colleagues We reward excellent performance Safety We work towards world class safety standards to eliminate injuries Excellence in all we do We pursue world-class business operating standards and superior performance within a framework of sound governance and internationally accepted health and environmental standards and practices Continuous Improvement We strive to improve our performance Integrity We deal with each other, our customers and other stakeholders fairly, openly and honestly

5 The Sasol Wax Difference
World Class Products - Many with unique advantages Global supply Relentless innovation and improvement of everything Technological expertise Extensive experience in many industries and markets Deep understanding of customer needs Customised solutions Win-win value in long-term relationships Reliable supply Highly responsive, flexible, and agile We are always searching for ways to make a difference, and we believe that the 10 points in this slide explains it best. Important again for this meeting is “a deep understanding of customer needs” and the “win-win value in long-term relationships”.

14 SWNA Formulating Expertise
The Sasol Wax business model is based on providing wax solutions for every process. Our staff of R&D personnel and product managers have significant experience and expertise in all areas of wax application. In every application, SWNA works with individual customers to ensure that the final product meets our customers' most stringent requirements. Using our knowledge of waxes and our customers’ applications, we are able to utilize waxes from multiple sources while maintaining consistent product performance. In order to ensure cost effective, continuous supply of raw materials for our products, SWNA sources waxes from all over the world, as well as from domestic suppliers. SWNA will not change the specifications or the basic ingredients of our formulations without first obtaining your written approval.

17 Products for Paper and Packaging
Flexible Packaging Blends Corrugated Blends Saturating Waxes Curtain Coating Waxes Impregnating Waxes Development: Water based coatings Our new developments of interest to Smurfit is the vegetable wax as paraffin wax extender. This has already been developed and been trialed and used in the industry. Our laboratory in South Africa is responsible for research and developments to look at water based coatings for the paper and corrugated industry. A few products have already been developed. New FT plants will be built globally and Sasol will be a major player. This is a long term development though (> 5 years).

Water repellent Sealing Increased wet strength Barrier function

19 Hydrowax for Internal Sizing and Size Press Formulation
For internal sizing the hydrowax is added to pulp commonly at the blend chest. HydroWax emulsions are finely emulsified/dispersed wax particles in water. As part of a sizing formulation they are used in size press applications. For internal sizing Hydrowax can also be added neat to the pulp. The selection of the best Hydrowax is determined by the finished paper good as well as processing parameters like pH, charge and shear forces. The pictures show different settings of a size press applications. Widely used are vertical and gate roll size presses. horizontal vertical induced gate roll size press

20 Refined Wax Grades for Flexible Packaging

24 Curtain Coating Waxes Meat Poultry Vegetables
Sasolwax formulations are used for the production of a variety of cardboards and technical papers. Cardboards are used for shipping boxes of fresh and frozen food. Technical papers are needed for a wide range of applications from photographic, printing and document paper to wrapping paper for metal spare parts with greasy corrosion protection.

25 Hydrowax for Moisture Barriers on Fine Paper
The wax emulsions are being favoured in a new trend to do away with wax curtain coating and poly laminated coatings on food packaging and fine paper. The coating weight is less than half of curtain coating delivering a cost and recycling advantage to the customer. Cobb values are between at 25 Celsius and 50% relative humidity

26 Emulsions for Anti-linting
Well consolidated surface Low Lint Poorly consolidated surface High Lint Wax particles on fibre before melting

27 Sasolwax for Cardboard and Technical Paper
Meat Poultry Frozen sea food Plants Oily metal spare parts Sasolwax formulations are used for the production of a variety of cardboards and technical papers. Cardboards are used for shipping boxes of fresh and frozen food. Technical papers are needed for a wide range of applications from photographic, printing and document paper to wrapping paper for metal spare parts with greasy corrosion protection.

29 Curtain Coating Waxes This table depicts some of our current products for curtain coatings. We work with plants to produce custom blends as this application is very sensitive to processing parameters and equipment. We also have impregnating waxes available in liquid bulk.

30 Water Based Coatings Development
Emulsification and formulation of coatings Years of experience in waxes, emulsification of waxes and application testing Easy access to and understanding of wide range of waxes Statistical design formulating Barrier coating development areas: Water resistance Water vapor transmission rate Oil and grease proof Specific slip angle requirements Cold set glue-ability Double coatings As previously stated, this development work is done in South Africa where we have a lot of experience in emulsifying waxes. These products provide barrier properties specifically designed to achieve the desired requirements be it water resistance etc.
