Lubricity improver for rolling emulsions and cutting & forming fluids

Hostagliss A

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

  • Boron-free and DEA-free

Responsible Process

  • Resource efficiency due to 100% yield
  • Minimized waste generation
  • Certified for safety and quality according to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001
  • Global production (Germany, USA) can help to reduce transport

Safe & Efficient Use

  • Safe handling due to improved human tox profile, i.e. non irritant to eye and skin
  • For mineral-oil free formulations
  • Reduces energy consumption in metal working operations

Eco Integration

  • Improved environmental profile
  • Less effects to the aquatic environment (LC50 > 500 mg/l)
  • Readily biodegradable (Biodegradation > 80% according to OECD 301 D)
