Glyconol is an industrial additive has multi-functional properties that include unique gelling and viscosity modifying in wax and plastic materials.
Viscosity Modifier – Gellant: In liquids, Glyconol imparts thickening and gelation at low percentage additions
Plasticizer: In waxes and wax resin blends, Glyconol reduces low temperature embrittlement and cracking, increases the service temperature range of the product.
Lubricant: Because of its unique chemical structure, Glyconol possesses physical and mechanical properties that enable it to perform well as a lubricant in the broadest sense of the word. In applications involving metal to metal contact, Glyconol is best used as an additive to the basic lubricating medium. It toughens the lubricating film and improves its adhesion to the metal surface, extending the life and service range in extreme pressure applications. Glyconol also acts as an anti-flocculent or anti-precipitant to prevent the separation of fatty substances that frequently occur with a drop in lube temperature.
In plastic applications Glyconol functions as both an internal and external lubricant. As an internal lubricant it promotes resin flow; lowers the power requirements for mixing, extrusion and injection molding; increases the dispersion rate of pigments and fillers. Because of its limited compatibility with most resins, it may also migrate to the surface where an extremely thin film forms to act as an external lubricant. As such, it provides good slip, mold release, and anti-block properties.
