Plastics are substituting more and more traditional materials and thus need ever higher performing additives. Clariant’s innovative and renewable bio-additive solutions Licocare® RBW Vita support this development and deliver on both high performance and sustainability. Based on renewable crude rice bran wax, Licocare® RBW Vita additives function as highly effective lubricants and dispersion aids. The main target applications are engineering thermoplastics such as polyamides, polyesters or TPU, biopolymers like PLA, and epoxy resins. Solutions carrying the Vita designator are based on renewable feedstock and have at least 98% RCI, Renewable Carbon Index.

FROM RICE GRAIN TO LICOCARE® RBW Vita

Our multi-purpose additives are derived from crude rice bran wax. This is a by-product from the production of rice bran oil. Clariant chemically and physically upgrades this renewable raw material and thus contributes to using the rice grain's full value.

Plastics lubrication made Highly effective and sustainable

Licocare® RBW Vita solutions offer various valuable features and benefits to plastics compounders and masterbatch producers to fulfil highly demanding requirements set by e. g. the transportation and electrical & electronic industries. Our high performing waxes improve melt flow, lower mold release force required to release parts from molds and ensure a more homogeneous distribution of pigments. The bio-based additive solutions also have an excellent environmental profile which is conducive to achieving corporate sustainability targets. Clariant has earned a Gold level Material Health Certificate for Licocare® RBW Vita. A Material Health Certificate is awarded to products that meet the Material Health requirements of the multi-attribute Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Product Standard. Furthermore, the Licocare® RBW Vita range has also been awarded the “OK compost INDUSTRIAL” certificate. Awarding test and certification body, TÜV Austria Cert GmbH, also granted to Licocare RBW 102 Vita the “OK biodegradable SOIL” label. Herewith, Clariant contributes to the development of industrially compostable plastics as well as of biodegradable coatings for agriculture.
