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.


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

Heat resistance
