Guide to Selecting UCON Fluids and Lubricants

UCON™ base polymers are polyalkylene glycols (PAGs) that are sold as base stocks for your formulation. UCON fluids and lubricants are synthetic, a key benefit to using our base stocks. because they can be controlled and varied to achieve a level of performance not possible with natural oils and lubricants. You can find a base stock that best meets your needs based on the chemical structure and viscosity additive.

formula

LB Fluids are alcohol-started base stocks featuring oxypropylene groups (m=0) with one terminal hydroxyl group. They are water insoluble and available in a variety of molecular weights and viscosities.

OSP Fluids are advanced oil soluble polymer base fluids offering compatibility with mineral oils and synthetic hydrocarbon base oils as well as other base fluids. They are available in a variety of viscosities.

50-HB Fluids are alcohol-started base stocks containing equal weight amounts of oxyethylene and oxypropylene groups with a single terminal hydroxyl group. They are water soluble at ambient temperature and are available in a variety of molecular weights and viscosities.

60-H Fluids are diol-initiated alkoxylated random copolymers of EO and PO. 60-H Fluids are soluble in cold water but exhibit inverse solubility at high temperatures. They are available in a variety of molecular weights and viscosities.

75-H Fluids are diol-started base stocks containing 75 weight percent oxyethylene and 25 percent oxypropylene groups with two terminal hydroxyl groups. They are water soluble at temperatures below 75°C and are available in a variety of molecular weights and viscosities.
