Lucalen

Lucalen

Lucalen is LyondellBasell’s trade name for its ethylene butyl acrylate (EBA) copolymer and ethylene acrylic acid/acrylate copolymers. Lucalen resins are versatile functional copolymers, the high elasticity and unique polarity of Lucalen lends itself perfectly to a range of applications. Lucalen resins are EBA is often used to replace ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), especially in high temperature processes where thermal decomposition and the formation of acetic acid, which causes odour, loss of properties and corrosion in the tools, need to be avoided.

Applications: 
  • Polymer modification
  • Hot melt additives
  • Wire & cable
  • Flooring
  • Hyper-filled compounds
  • Foam
  • Industrial packaging
  • Films
  • Anti-corrosion steel pipe coating
  • Asphalt bitumen modification
  • Automotive accoustic & carpet backing
Properties: 
  • Good compatibility with other ethylene copolymers
  • Good adhesion to various substrates
  • Excellent softness
  • Good ESCR
  • Good low temperature mechanical performance
  • Good optical clarity
  • Low stickiness
  • Crosslinkable (peroxide, silan, E-beam)
  • Good polarity
  • Good sealability
