Image for Lubricants and Metalworking Fluids


Metalworking Fluids:

ABITEC Corporation manufactures base oils and performance enhancing additives for both neat (oil based) and water extendable metalworking fluids.  For more than 50 years we have been producing surfactants (nonionic and anionic), emulsifiers, friction modifiers, corrosion inhibitors and base oils from natural, renewable raw materials.  Our experience developing and manufacturing amides, alkoxylates, specialty esters and quaternary compounds means that we have access to a variety of chemistries, from two plants in the USA.  We manufacture products in both liquid and solid (flake) form.



ABITEC Corporation is well-known as a leader in the development and manufacture of naturally derived raw materials and additives for a wide variety of end-use applications and markets including food, pharma and personal care. What is not so well-known is that ABITEC also manufactures base oils and performance enhancing additives for lubricant and metalworking fluid applications.

Our two plants in Wisconsin and Illinois, in the USA, manufacture API Group V base oils based on synthetic esters and polyalkylene glycols (PAGs), along with friction modifiers, surfactants and emulsifiers. Formulators of biobased, food grade and specialty synthetic lubricants use our products to improve performance and/or reduce the environmental impact of lubricating oils and greases.


Our portfolio Includes:


Emulsifiers & Surfactants  Friction Modifiers  Base Oils Minimum Quantity Lubrication

Our flexibility for minimum order quantities and package types combined with our technical and analytical capabilities offer a level of service not often available from a manufacturer.  Whether you are working on a new formula, looking to drive costs out of an existing formula or you need a more flexible and reliable source of supply for lubricant additives and base fluids, please contact us.
