ApplicationsLicowax PE 130 powder is an external lubricant especially for rigid PVC applications. It provides excellent anti-sticking properties to the PVC melt resulting in a smooth and glossy surface of the end article.
Licowax PE 130 powder is also an internal lubricant for polyolefins providing flow improvement of PE compounds and can be used as a dispersing aid for polyolefin masterbatch application.
Another application for Licowax PE 130 powder is that it adjusts viscosity, open and set time in hotmelt adhesives.
It can also be used as a wax compound in printing inks to provide rub and scratch resistance as well as a slip modification additive.
Used in various applications like PVC, dispersing aid for masterbatch, flow improvement of PE compounds
Rub resistance for printing inks
solvent based polishes
modification of hotmelt adhesives
