The metalworking industry is constantly undergoing change, driven by the demand for superior performance products to provide improved productivity at lower cost.
As technologies and working practices develop, base fluid suppliers, additive suppliers and metalworking fluid formulators must adapt quickly to support the advances taking place.
Croda recognises these changes and the diverse demands placed on the metalworking fluid formulation and has developed a broad range of advanced performance products with the following functionalities:
- Base oils (neat, semi-synthetic and synthetic)
- Lubricity boosters
- Extreme pressure/anti-wear additives
- Fatty acids for use as lubricity additives, emulsifiers and corrosion inhibitors
- Film formers/wetting agents
- Corrosion inhibitors
- Temporary corrosion protection additives
Croda has developed a new lubricity additive designed for use in the formulation of neat metal cutting and deformation fluids, namely Perfad 8400, offering unique, unequalled lubrication performance.

In addition to Perfad 8400 above, Croda has developed Perfad 8100, a non-toxic, chlorine-free additive to replace chlorinated paraffins in metalworking lubricants and coolants.
