Fluids or oils for heat transfer, lubrication, power transmission or specialized applications.
Anti-seize compounds, anti-stick compounds, and thread lubricants are applied to threads to prevent binding or sticking bolts or fasteners.
Base oils and process oils are the raw stock fluids, usually a refined petroleum fraction or a selected synthetic material, blended with additives to produce finished lubricants, greases, thermal oils, hydraulic fluid and metal working fluids.
Dielectric greases and insulating fluids are applied to electric terminals in high voltage equipment to minimize disharges, insulate and lubricate non-conductive surfaces, exclude moisture, and conduct heat.
Fuel additives are chemical substances that are added to gasoline, diesel, kerosene and other fuels to impart or improve certain properties.
Fuels and fuel products include gasoline, diesel oil, natural gas, propane, coal, fossil fuels, biofuels and other combustible fluids or materials.
Heat transfer fluids, thermal oils, circulating coolants, and heater liquids are used to carry thermal energy in process heating and machine cooling applications.
Heat treatment salt is melted to form a molten salt bath, which is used to anneal, solution treat, quench or harden, temper, clean, strip, descale, braze, sodler, nitride, carbonitride, carbuize, and cure rubber.
Hydraulic oils and transmission fluids are used to transmit power in hydraulic equipment and power transmission applications.
Industrial greases are thickened gels that consist of natural, synthetic, or semi-synthetic substances. They do not run off surfaces and are used in a variety of lubrication, sealing, and exclusion applications.
Industrial lubricants are oils, fluids, greases and other compounds designed to reduce friction, binding or wear and exclude moisture. Specialized characteristics may enhance thermal conduction across thermal interfaces or reduce electrical resistivity across electrical joints.
Metalworking lubricants, coolants and fluids are specialized coatings and carriers for metal forming, metal cutting, lapping, polishing, and grinding applications.
Mold releases and release agents are film forming lubricating oils, solid lubricants, waxes, fluids or coatings that prevent other materials from sticking or adhering to an underlying surface.
Oil additives and fluid additives are chemical substances that are added to oils and industrial fluids to impart or improve certain properties. They are used with lubricants, coolants, thermal oils, greases, metal working fluids, and other application-specific fluids.
Penetrants and penetrating oils are low viscosity fluids used to free rusted or corroded nuts, bolts, fasteners, shafts, pulleys and other mechanical parts. Most penetrating fluids contain a low viscosity solvent or volatile vehicle.
Petroleum products and mineral oil products include substances such as fluids and greases.
Quenching oil and heat treatment fluids are designed for rapid or controlled cooling of steel or other metal as part of a hardening, tempering or other heat-treating process.
Primary refrigerants use a thermodynamic or adiabatic process (evaporation-condensation cycles) to remove heat and cool a region. Secondary refrigerants such as antifreeze liquids provide cooling solely through heat transfer.
Rust preventives and corrosion inhibitors are lubricants, greases, oils or fluid additives that form a protective film or barrier to prevent corrosion or rust formation.
Solid and dry film lubricants form a dry layer or coating that excludes moisture and reduces friction, binding, and wear. They often contain additives such as corrosion, oxidation, and rust inhibitors.
Specialty fluids and lubricants include specialized, proprietary or unlisted lubricants or fluids.
Synthetic oils, greases and lubricants are based on synthetic compounds such as silicone, polyglycol, esters, digesters, chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and mixtures of synthetic fluids and water.
Vacuum greases and vacuum pump oils are suitable for vacuum sealing, diffusion pumps and other vacuum fluid applications.
Waxes and wax compounds are high molecular weight organic materials similar to fats and oils, except waxes are solid at room temperature (melting point above 45 C). Waxes are used in sealers, polishes, inks, lubricants, binders and investment casting.
