Metalworking Fluids

Lankem has a broad range of surfactants that find use in the formulation of metalworking fluids. They find use in metal removal, metal forming and products used in the finishing of metal items, cleaning plating, anodizing etc.

 

The products Lankem offers for the formulation of metalworking products includes, in addition to the classic synthetic surfactants, the new range of BioLoop biobased surfactants.

 

The BioLoop surfactants offer a broad range of surface-active characteristics along with excellent profiles in terms of irritancy, ecotoxicity, biodegradability and >98% biobased carbon contents.

 

The use of surfactants within the metalworking industry is widespread, where their properties are essential in the formulation of effective products, including:

 

  • BioLoop Surfactants

  • Corrosion Inhibition

  • Emulsifiers

  • Lubricity Additives

  • Coupling Agents

  • Low Foam

  • Metal Cleaning

Emulsifiers
 

Emulsifiers are essential components in the formulation of water-miscible metalworking with a broad range of chemistries being employed to provide optimum stability for different oils and water compositions.

Coupling Agents

Coupling agents are used in a range of metalworking fluids where they optimise formulation homogeneity maximising the stability of both the concentrate and aqueous dilution.

Metal Cleaning

Metal cleaning is essential to remove dirt, lubricants, particulates, and fluids that accumulate on metal surfaces during the metalworking process.

Corrosion
Inhibition

Corrosion inhibitors components provided by Lankem may be used to boost corrosion inhibition properties of water-based fluids for steel, iron, aluminium, other metals, and neat oil lubricants for ferrous based metals.

Lubricity
Additives

Lubricity additives can provide much of the lubricity to enhance the characteristics of other oils, enhancing boundary layer lubrication.
