● Clariant GmbH now offers Licocene, a
new line of polyolefin waxes manufactured
using metallocene catalysts.
These waxes have a property profile
that can be optimized and tailored to
suit diverse applications. The line
includes polyethylenes and focuses on
speciality grades of polypropylenes
and copolymers. The waxes are currently
produced in a continuously
operating pilot plant. Clariant will
build a production plant at the Höchst
