Partly saponified, ester wax

Edition Number :
8
Edition Date :
November 09, 2015
Licowax OP flakes is a partly saponified ester wax of montanic acids used for a wide variety of polymers as multifunctional lubricant and dispersing agent. Suitable for PVC, engineering resins, thermosets etc.
In addition, it is used in solvent-based polish applications, thanks to its excellent paste-forming and solvent-binding capacity.

Benefits

  • Excellent wetting and dispersion of inorganic filler in PO compounds
  • Excellent paste forming properties
  • Superior solvent-binding capacity
  • High thermal stability, low volatility
  • Excellent external release in PVC and engineering resins outperforming standard lubricants
