Features & Benefits

+
Benefits
  • Lower energy consumption and higher efficiency in PVC processing compared to paraffins and conventional PE waxes
  • Excellent release properties in PVC
  • Highly efficient open/set time and viscosity modifier for hot melt adhesives
  • Highly efficient nucleating agent in expandable Polystyrene (EPS

Applications & Uses

+
Processing

Licocene PE 4201 granules is a low viscous Metallocene catalyzed Polyethylene wax. It acts as a nucleating agent in expandable Polystyrene (EPS) and adjusts the cell size of the foam.

With its high crystallinity and low molecular weight, Licocene PE 4201 granules is a highly compatible modifier for open time, set time and viscosity, especially for polyolefin based hot melt adhesives. 

In printing inks, it improves the rub resistance and acts as an anti-offset agent for electrophotographic toners. 

Formulators of asphalt and bitumen based formulation will benefit from the improved wetting of incorporated fillers combined with an increased heat and creep resistance.
