Lubricity improvers for emulsion-type metalworking fluids
Our range of lubricity improvers consists mainly of specialty complex esters and polymeric esters. Further lubricating components can be found in the category of EP/AW additives and PAG-based lubricants.
In general, our complex esters are hazard label free and readily biodegradable, and offer a good stability against hydrolysis in alkaline media. Hence, they can be used as suitable components for the formulation of water miscible metalworking fluids to improve anti-wear properties.
Lubricity improvers for fully synthetic metalworking fluids
To find a good balance between lubricity and stability, our range of polyglycol-based fully synthetic lubricity improvers is the right place to look.
Clariant’s broad portfolio provides both low and high cloud point products, delivering the benefits of both sides and making its lubricity improvers adaptable to your needs:
- A low cloud point and thus high lubricity makes working on aluminum easier and reduces wear.
- A higher cloud point gives greater stability to MWF concentrates during storage.
Our wide selection of high-performing fully synthetic PAG lubricants allows you to find the right balance between these poles: within the recommended cloud point range of 30 to 50 °C for fully synthetic high-lubricity formulations, you can adapt storage stability and lubrication performance precisely to your needs.
