ApplicationsLicocene 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.
External lubricant in PVC processing.
