Waxes for

AGRICULTURAL COATINGS

The increasing world population and rising food demand make an efficient use of arable land and effective crop care more vital than ever before. Our high-quality wax solutions contribute to this care by enhancing the performance of agricultural coatings and other farming-related formulations.

Key benefits of our offering

FOR AGRICULTURAL APPLICATIONS

1.

Renewable solutions improving the sustainability and biodegradability of agricultural coatings and formulations

2.

Better handling and storage due to improved properties such as anti-caking, anti-dusting and free flow

3.

Enhanced surface protection and performance due to better water resistance, rain fastness, release control and other benefits

Waxes for

HOME AND INDUSTRIAL CARE

Our offering for home and industrial care comprises high-performing waxes for floor care formulations, shoe and car polish, leather and furniture care. These polish waxes and other specialty products help to brighten up and protect surfaces, improving their appearance and longevity. Depending on the application, they can be used in water- or solvent-based emulsions/dispersions and pastes.

Key benefits of our offering

FOR POLISHES AND CARE PRODUCTS

1.

Our renewable-based Licocare® RBW Vita grades provide a more sustainable alternative to conventional solutions

2.

The care and protection our solutions provide can help to substantially extend the lifetime of products and surfaces

3.

By tuning properties like gloss and shine, our waxes can help to enhance the appearance of treated surfaces

Waxes for industrial applications

LUBRICANTS, RELEASE AGENTS, ANTI-CORROSION AND
ENHANCED POWDER METALLURGY AND ROAD BUILDING

Our waxes can be used as lubricants and release agents in many industrial processes, where they effectively reduce the friction and adhesion between surfaces. They can also serve as the base for corrosion protection products, or as dispersing aids for other bases such as paraffin. In powder metallurgy, they act as lubricants and enhance the compression and release of sintered parts. In road construction, they improve asphalt mixing and help to create longer-lasting pavings.

Key benefits of our offering

FOR VARIOUS INDUSTRIES AND ROAD CONSTRUCTION

1.

Improved lubrication and release raise the performance of industrial lubricants, release agents and metal sintering processes

2.

Enhanced surface protection contributes to the corrosion protection of metal surfaces and makes them last longer

3.

Optimized mechanical properties and costs enabled by bitumen modification can greatly improve road construction operations

Waxes for consumer products

FROM BETTER PENCILS, CRAYONS AND CHALKS
TO IMPROVED COSMETICS AND CANDLES

In stationery manufacturing, our waxes can aid in the extrusion of pencil leads and improve their drawing properties. Furthermore, they can be used to fine-tune the slip, mechanics, looks and feel of pencil coatings, as well as to enhance the performance of crayons and chalks. In cosmetic products, our additives help to adjust viscosity and enhance hardening, shaping and binding properties. To candles and similar wax products, they bring better drip behavior, burning qualities and surface appearance.

Key benefits of our offering

FOR CONSUMER ITEMS

1.

By improving properties like hardness and durability, our waxes can considerably extend the lifetime of products

2.

The enhanced adhesion and binding properties our solutions impart can substantially boost final product performance

  • Licowax® E flakes

    Licowax E flakes is an ester of montanic acids with multifunctional alcohols. The montanic acids contained in raw montan wax are straightchain, unbranched monocarboxylic acids with a chain length in the range of C28-C32. As a result of the long chain these montanic acids have a high thermostability and a low volatility as well as a low tendency to migration. Licowax E flakes is used as lubricant and dispersing agent in a wide variety of polymers like PVC, PS, PBT, PA, PDM, PC, TPU. Licowax E flakes is also applied in polish & care industries, such as shoe & leather care, car care. It is a hard ester wax and good paste forming properties and it is easily emulsifiable.
