Base Fluids

Formulators of industrial and commercial lubricants are increasingly turning to synthetic base fluids and natural oils when they need to develop new products for particular applications or markets. ABITEC is well positioned to help with this as we have extensive experience developing and manufacturing materials typically used as Group V base fluids, including synthetic esters, natural oils, polyalkylene glycols (PAGs), and amides.

Featuring:  High Viscosity Esters for Lubricants

These environmentally friendly specialty esters can be the right choice for a wide variety of lubricant formulations including gear oils, greases, hydraulic fluids, chain lubricants and wire rope lubricants.  They can also be perfect for metalworking fluids, especially for forming, drawing and stamping operations.  The Caplube® line includes high and ultra-high viscosity synthetic esters and samples are readily available.
