Application Detail

Lubricant application

LUCANT™ is a superb lubricating material that has the characteristics of wide operating temperature, excellent shear stability, excellent thickening efficiency, thick oil film thickness and low pour point, among other important properties. Furthermore, LUCANT™ provides higher functions and improving fuel saving performance of lubricants that are required to show heat resistance and low-temperature resistance, such as gear oil for automotive driveline systems including transmissions and differential gears, and lubricants and grease for industrial use.

In the lubricant field, Mitsui Chemicals has entered into an exclusive partnership agreement with the Lubrizol Corporation. For details, please refer to our press release.

Rubber and elastomer application

When LUCANT™ is used as a plasticizer, a flexibilizer or a processing aid for rubbers and elastomers such as EPDM and thermoplastic styrene-based compounds, it endows them with flexibility, good processability, high heat resistance, good low-temperature properties, damping properties, antifouling characteristics, low migration properties, among other properties. The LUCANT™-using rubbers and elastomers are applicable to a wide variety of automotive parts (damping materials, sealing materials, etc.) and industrial parts (heat-resistant conveyer belts, OA rolls, etc.) LUCANT™ also demonstrates a high effect as a defoaming agent for thermosetting elastomers (urethane, epoxy, etc.)

Resin application

LUCANT™ endows a broad range of thermoplastic resins (POM, ABS, etc.) with satisfactory sliding properties, low-temperature properties, flowability and flexibility. The thermoplastic resins using LUCANT™ can be applied to those resin gears and bearings which are required to have sliding properties.

Paint and coating application

LUCANT™ demonstrates its effect as a defoaming agent for paints. It is effective particularly for paint and coatings based on solvent-based and non-solvent-based urethane and epoxy. Satisfactory appearance can be obtained with a small addition amount of LUCANT™. LUCANT™ contains no silicone or aromatic solvent.
