Hostagliss A

Lubricity improver for rolling emulsions and cutting & forming fluids

Edition Date :
September 20, 2022
Hostagliss A is a complex ester and can be used as lubricity improver in rolling emulsions and cutting & forming fluids. Despite its high viscosity, it can be easily incorporated into concentrates for water based emulsions. The product contributes to emulsion stability and corrosion protection when neutralized with alkanolamines.


  • Good lubricity and anti-wear properties
  • Reduces energy consumption in metal working operations    
  • Easy to emulsify
  • Corrosion inhibiting properties
  • Free of hazardous labeling
  • Broad registration status
Product Function
  • Lubricity improver
Chemical Type
  • Complex esters
