Licocare® RBW – Lubricants and Dispersing Agents

based on renewable feedstock

Play
x
Plastics are substituting more and more traditional materials and thus need ever higher performing additives. Clariant’s innovative and renewable bio-additive solutions Licocare® RBW support this development. Based on renewable crude rice bran wax, Licocare® RBW additives function as highly effective lubricating and dispersing agents. The main target applications are engineering thermoplastics such as polyamides, polyesters or TPU, biopolymers like PLA, and epoxy resins.

FROM RICE GRAIN TO LICOCARE® RBW

Our multi-purpose additives are derived from crude rice bran wax. This is a by-product from the production of rice bran oil. Clariant chemically and physically upgrades this renewable raw material and thus contributes to using the rice grain's full value.

Plastics lubrication made Highly effective and sustainable

Licocare® RBW solutions offer various valuable features and benefits to plastics compounders and masterbatch producers to fulfil highly demanding requirements set by e. g. the transportation and electrical & electronic industries. Our high performing waxes improve melt flow, lower mold release force required to release parts from molds and ensure a more homogeneous distribution of pigments. The bio-based additive solutions also have an excellent environmental profile which is conducive to achieving corporate sustainability targets.
