Licocene® PE MA 4351 fine grain

Functionalized metallocene polyethylene wax

Edition Number :
Edition Date :
February 07, 2019
Licocene PE MA 4351 fine grain is a highly grafted maleic anhydride polyethylene wax with advantageous physical properties e. g. for powder coating applications. The maleic anhydride modified polyethylene creates structured surfaces in combination with titanium dioxide. The roughness depends on the ratio of titanium dioxide to Licocene PE MA 4351 fine grain.
Licocene PE MA 4351 fine grain is used as an efficient coupling agent for glass-, wood-, natural fibre and inorganic filled PE compounds
  • PTFE-free additive to produce matt surfaces in powder coatings
  • Improved edge covering and influence on flow properties especially in white powder coatings
  • Dispersing aid for fillers and pigment    
  • Good wetting of the fibre due to low viscosity and high polarity
  • High dimension stability of the end product
  • Low water uptake in wood and natural fibre reinforced plastics
  • High grafting level of 7 % maleic anhydride
  • Effective at low concentration
  • Almost no free maleic anhydride detectable

Licocene PE MA 4351 fine grain is a highly maleic anhydride grafted polyethylene wax. It is preferable used for polyethylene based reinforced compounds in the concentration
range of 1 – 3 %. The concentration depends on the particle size, the kind and amount of the reinforcing material. Therefore the optimum concentration has to be determined individually in specific tests.

Licocene PE MA 4351 fine grain is a highly efficient compatibilizer and dispersing aid for glass- natural-, mineral- and wood fibre reinforced Polyethylene as well as for inorganic filled Polyethylene compounds especially for highly filled compounds. 

Used in hot melt formulations, Licocene PE MA 4351 fine grain offers improved adhesion and cohesion combined with a high heat resistance.
