Biosynthetic Technologies CEO discusses new novel additive for metalworking fluids and the company’s plan for ILSAC GF-6

Biosynthetic® Technologies recently announced the global launch of their new product line of novel additives for metalworking fluids (MWF) called Biocea™. These novel sustainable additives use the patented estolide technology. These MWF additives are biobased, biodegradable, non-bioaccumulative, and non-toxic. Biocea additives leverage Biosynthetic Technologies’ proprietary estolide technology for high demanding water soluble, synthetic, and conventional oil additive applications. Biocea additives, which are produced from castor oil derivatives in India, enhance the lubricity, polarity, film strength, biostability, hydrolytic stability, and oxidative stability of the base fluid. In this podcast, Mark Miller, CEO of Biosynthetic Technologies, talks about this unique biodegradable MWF additive, plus the company’s plan in the engine oil space, as it pursues its ILSAC GF-6 certification from the American Petroleum Institute (API) for its estolide base fluids.
