LUCANT™
Hydrocarbon-based Synthetic Oil (Liquid Polyolefinic Oligomer)

LUCANT™ endows lubricants, rubbers, resins, paints and coatings with new higher functions.

  • Heat resistance
  • Chemical resistance
  • Lubricity improvement

Basic Information

LUCANT™ is an ethylene/α-olefin oligomer. It is a hydrocarbon-based synthetic oil containing no polar group. The synthetic oil having this structure is a unique product commercialized by Mitsui Chemicals for the first time in the world.

LUCANT™ as a base oil or a viscosity modifier contributes to an improvement in the functions of the lubricants that are required to have heat resistance, low-temperature resistance and high shear stability.

LUCANT™ as an additive to rubbers, resins, paints and coatings, etc. gives new functions such as processability, flexibility, heat resistance, low-temperature properties, sliding properties and defoaming properties, among other properties.

Appearance

LUCANT™ is a colorless, transparent, viscous liquid. A full lineup of LUCANT™ grades that covers a broad range of viscosity is available.

Heat resistance

LUCANT™ is stable against heat. It is a material that has high flash and ignition points.

Chemical resistance

LUCANT™ is chemically stable and shows excellent chemical resistance, exhibiting little or no quality change when exposed to acid and alkali.

Lubricity improvement

LUCANT™ is a superb lubricating material that is characterized by wide operating temperature, excellent shear stability, excellent thickening efficiency, thick oil film thickness and low pour point, among other properties.

Application

Lubricant application, Rubber & Elastomers application as plasticizer, flexibilizer and process aid, Resin application as flexibilizer, slip agent and sliding property improver, Paint and coating application as defoamer, and other application (tackifier, adhesive, ink , cosmetics, heat carrier, specialty chemicals and solvents)
