Lubricants and Fluids
Formulating the next generation of high-performance lubricants
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, silicone and inhibited glycols. These offer excellent thermal stability (high and low temperatures) and corrosion protection (including food-grade options) for a variety of heat management and heat transfer applications.
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.
