The base oil component of the grease must be able to perform many functions. For example, the grease is required to have excellent lubricating properties and good solubility characteristics to enable it to solubilise performance enhancing additives. The base oil should be matched to the thickener system to avoid detrimental effects through solubilisation.
Thickeners create the grease structure and can be an organic acid soap or a high viscosity complex ester. Soaps are typically fibrous and will vary in thickness, length and oil solubility and these variations will be displayed in the final properties of the grease. Our high quality fatty acids and high viscosity complex esters designed for use during soap production can result in an improvement to the grease consistency, and support reduced lubricant consumption.
Enhancing performance and extending product life requires the efficient use of high performance additives. We have a range of corrosion inhibitors which are highly effective at low treat-rates.
To protect equipment these can be used in standard form or neautralised for desired performance and solubility.
For use during soap production which can result in an improvement to the grease consistency and support reduced oil consumption.
Tolerate long periods of operation without any significant loss of performance.
Without crystallising or freezing, these base oils can operate and be stored at very low temperatures.
For the prevention of wear in grease applications.
