Pine chemistry means heavy-duty tools used to cut steel can last longer

Metalworking fluid (MWF) manufacturing environments face increasing pressures. Productivity is impacted and costs are incurred each time a formulation is modified, or tools break down from wear and tear. Formulators like See Lube Technologies Private Limited that can create MWFs to address these challenges and outperform competing products have a distinct advantage.

Ingevity, the stand-out specialty chemicals company headquartered in North Charleston, South Carolina, manufactures AltaLUB® 5300 pine-based lubricant chemistry that enables more cost-effective MWF formulations. When formulating with AltaLUB 5300, processors like See Lube create products for their customers that perform with greater consistency across a tool run and on multiple metal surfaces.

The unique properties of AltaLUB 5300 enable better lubrication than self-emulsifying ester-based fluids, and reduce the need for other additional emulsifiers during formulation. This means increased tool life; labor cost savings without the need to change or repair machines as often; and optimally-formulated, lower-cost products.
