Industrial Lubricants Additives & Emulsifiers

We are committed to the industrial lubricant and metal working industry since decades and have the depth and product diversity to satisfy customers‘ needs with global strength and local resources. Our vision is to be your preferred supplier for water-based and synthetic applications by providing you innovative, state of the art solutions combined with a high level of service and formulation support to meet your current and future challenges.

We offer a broad product portfolio for the Industrial Lubricants segment including synthetic base fluids, low foaming emulsifiers, components and lubricant additives to a number of lubricant and metal working applications.

  • With more than 40 year’s experience serving the lubricant & metal working industry, we have developed a profound market understanding and formulation expertise for a variety of end-use applications, especially for water-based and synthetic-based industrial lubricants.

    • Metal Working Fluids

      For water-miscible cutting and grinding fluids (emulsions, semi-synthetic and synthetic MWF) we offer a comprehensive range of components and performance additives: Anionic and nonionic emulsifiers, corrosion inhibitors, extreme pressure/anti-wear additives, lubricity improvers, biocides and neutralizing agents. Additionally our portfolio includes preformulated emulsifier and corrosion inhibitor packages as well as ready-to-use packages for water-extendable metal working fluids. more

    • Quenching Fluids

      For water-based quenchants we provide polyalkylene glycols with viscosities of 2,000-19,000 mm2/s (at 40°C), low volatile water-soluble corrosion inhibitors, biocides and neutralizing agents. more

    • Rolling Fluids

      For rolling fluid formulations we provide high quality materials and tailor-made solutions. Our range of base fluids includes acidic complex esters as well as polyolesters (outside Europe). The range of additives include polymeric and oil soluble nonionic emulsifiers for rolling emulsions, corrosion inhibitors, extreme pressure/anti-wear additives, biocides and neutralizing agents. more

    • Metal Cleaner

      After metal working operations all kind of soils must be removed from the semi-finished parts or work pieces. For metal cleaning applications (alkaline, mild alkaline, emulsion and acid cleaners) we offer a broad range of low foaming surfactants, defoamers and water-soluble corrosion inhibitors and neutralizing agents. more

    • Rust Prevention Oils

      After metal cleaning applications, the surface of the metal work piece is treated to with rust prevention oils in order to protect the finished part for transportation and storage. For corrosion protection oils we recommend corrosion inhibitors based on phosphoric acid esters. more

    • Greases

      For industrial greases we provide a broad range of polyalkylene glycols for ISO VG classes from 32-1000. Additional our portfolio includes specialty ingredients such as thickener/intermediates for polyurea and terephthalamate greases. more

    • Compressor Oils

      For the production of LDPE (low density polyethylene) we offer 3 types of polyalkylene based hyper compressor oils. Our products have been certified by Burckhardt Compression AG for cylinder lubrication of secondary compressors (or so called hypercompressors). Additionally the products are listed at the NSF International as lubricant with incidental food contact (H1) for use in and around food processing. more

    • Gear Oils

      We offer a broad range of polyalkylene glycols used as synthetic base fluids for high load industrial gear oils fluid with ISO VG classes from 32-1000. Additionally we provide powerful additives and performance packages with extreme pressure/anti-wear properties to increase load carrying properties and lubricity of the gear oil. more

    • Hydraulic Fluids

      Our portfolio for fire-resistant hydraulic fluids include components and additives such as: • Thickeners based on Polyalkylene Glycol and antifreeze additives for water-containing HFC-types • Synthetic base fluids based on Polyolesters (outside Europe) and polyalkylenglycols for water-free HFD- types • Broad range of corrosion inhibitors, EP/AW-additives and emulsifying systems for HFA E-types (oil in water emulsions) more

  • We offer a broad portfolio of synthetic base fluids, performance additives and packages & concentrates for a variety of water-based and synthetic industrial lubricant formulations , ranging from hyper-compressor oils and  fire-resistant hydraulic fluids, to industrial gear oils, industrial greases and metal working fluids (incl. cutting, grinding, forming, rolling, quenching as well as metal cleaner and corrosion protection oils).

    • Biocides

      Water-based fluids are sensitive to attack by bacteria and fungi. The appropriate biocide is essential to control the presence of micro-organisms and the formation of biofilms in order to maintain the performance and lifetime of the fluid. more

    • Corrosion Inhibitors

      Our portfolio comprises water-soluble and water-dispersible products for formulating synthetic, semi-synthetic and milky emulsions. Excellent anticorrosion results can also be achieved under difficult conditions. more

    • Emulsifiers

      Discover our broad portfolio of non-ionic and anionic emulsifiers for hydraulic fluids and metalworking applications with excellent compatibility with each other and multifunctional performance. Corrosion protection, low foaming tendency, good oil solubility, hard water, and electrolyte stability. more

    • EP/AW Additives

      Phosphoric acid esters are effective extreme pressure/anti-wear additives, enhancing the metal working fluid or industrial gear oil by providing protection under extreme friction. more

    • Grease Components

      For industrial greases we offer specialty ingredients such as thickener for terephthalamate greases and precursers for polyurea greases. more

    • Lime Soap Dispersing Agents

      Ether carboxylic acids are valuable ingredients for high performance formulations such as semi-synthetic metal working fluids. Our Emulsogen® C range provide high emulsion stability, tolerating high content of electrolytes and are stable against water hardness and are therefore ideal to keep lime soaps dispersed. more

    • Low-foaming Surfactants

      Our low foaming surfactants are mostly used in mild alkaline or neutral spray cleaners. more

    • Lubricity Improvers

      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 synthetic base fluids. more

    • Neutralizing Agents

      Amines are used as neutralizing and or buffering agents in emulsifiable and synthetic fluids. Our products are free of secondary amines and cause almost no cobalt leaching. In many cases they improve the emulsion formation. more

    • Packages & Concentrates

      Our portfolio include selected performance packages such as emulsifier, inhibitor and lubricating packages as well as and ready-to-use packages for metal working fluids, de-watering fluids and compressor oils for cooling units. more

    • Synthetic Base Fluids

      Clariant offers base stocks based on polyol esters, complex esters and on polyalkylene glycols, covering a wide range of viscosities. These synthetic stocks allow “engineering” of high performance, premium lubricants that outperform traditional fluids, built on hydrocarbons such as mineral oils and alkylbenzenes or oils from animal and vegetable origin. more

    • Thickeners & Quenching Polymers

      Clariant is one of the world’s leading suppliers of water-soluble polyalkylene glycols used as thickening agents for fire-resistant hydraulic fluids (HFC, HFC-E) and polymer quenchants. more

    • Finished Fluids

      For the production of LDPE (low density polyethylene) we offer 3 types of polyalkylene based hyper compressor oils. Our products have been certified by Burckhardt Compression AG for cylinder lubrication of secondary compressors (or so called hypercompressors). Additionally the products are listed at the NSF International as lubricant with incidental food contact (H1) for use in and around food processing. more
