Edition Number :
7
Edition Date :
September 11, 2015
Licolub WE 40 powder is a  complex ester of montanic acids. Licolub WE 40 powder is used as an efficient, multi-functional lubricant in engineering resins as well as for the processing of PVC.

Benefits

Combines internal and external lubrication effects in engineering resins and PVC, leading to high flow properties and easy demolding.
Due to its low volatility, low migration tendency and high thermal stability, it enables a wide processing window in profile extrusion and injection-molding of polar polymers.
