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.

Benefits

  • Excellent internal and external release properties in PVC and engineering resins like PA, TPU
  • High thermostability and low volatility, low migration
  • Good paste forming properties
  • Excellent release properties in engineering resins outperforming standard lubricants
