CLEVELAND, US/ TOKYO, JAPAN: Mitsui Chemicals, held a groundbreaking ceremony for a new plant within the Ichihara Works of Mitsui Chemicals Inc, to manufacture Lucant hydrocarbon-based synthetic fluid.

The plant is scheduled to start commercial operations in February 2021.

Lucant is a high performance, hydrocarbon-based, specialty synthetic fluid used primarily as a viscosity modifier. It is used in the most demanding applications including automotive driveline fluids, industrial lubricants and greases, and it is the approved choice for leading OEMs and global oil marketers.

Mitsui Chemicals was the first manufacturer to offer this unique synthetic fluid, which boasts industry leading efficiency and durability.

In 2014, Mitsui and Lubrizol collaborated for Lucant product line.

"This investment in additional Lucant capacity will allow Mitsui Chemicals and the Lubrizol Additives business to meet the evolving and demanding needs of lubricant market," said Tom Curtis, President, Lubrizol Additives.
