Lubricants, Heat Transfer and Deicing Fluids

Enabling Formulation Success

Formulating the next generation of high-performance fluids

High-performance lubricants, heat transfer fluids and aircraft deicing fluids address key challenges for a wide variety of applications such as transmissions, axles, engines, metal processing, aircraft, food processing, electronics, commercial marine and gas turbines.

More Efficient Lubrication

Lubricants and base stocks address key challenges for applications such as transmissions, axles, engines, metal processing, commercial marine and gas turbines.

  • Polyalkylene glycols (PAGs) improve energy efficiency by reducing friction, increasing equipment durability and improving fuel economy and operational reliability
  • Non-varnishing synthetic base stocks enable extended lubricant performance with lower downtime and improved cleanliness
  • Low-odor ingredients and base stocks, with low toxicity, meet food and beverage processing standards for use where incidental contamination may occur

Wide-Ranging Options for Heat Management

Heat transfer fluids are available in three distinct fluid chemistries: synthetic organic, inhibited glycols and silicone. The technologies offer excellent thermal stability for high and low temperatures as well as corrosion protection for a variety of heat management and heat transfer applications. These include geothermal heat pumps and other water-based systems to food and beverage processing; and from pharmaceutical and polymer processing to Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) generation.

DOWFROST™ and DOWTHERM™ Heat Transfer Fluids

Heat transfer fluids make up about 1% of the total cost of a system, but they have the ability to ruin it completely if the fluid is low quality. Investing in quality fluids is investing in your system’s future. Dow heat transfer fluids have been helping systems achieve peak performance since 1929. We are the only fluid supplier with over 90 years in the industry. As a back-integrated supplier, Dow sets the bar for purity and longevity with DOWFROST and DOWTHERM…lasting over 20 years when properly maintained. Don’t compromise the lifetime of your system…Invest in it.

Efficient Aircraft Deicing Fluids

Aircraft deicing and anti-icing fluids are available as either ethylene glycol- or propylene glycol-based fluids. When the weather is unpredictable and challenging, they offer rapid and uniform wetting and spreading on aircraft surfaces, as well as long holdover times at very cold temperatures. They can be used as concentrate and ready to use (predilute) to assist in removal of ice, snow and frost from the exterior surfaces of aircraft.
