Our oleochemicals, which include as esters of natural fats and oils and fatty acids, provide special characteristics necessary for various metalworking requirements: melt point, heat stability, specific gravity, oxidative stability, viscosity, emulsifiability, and lubricity.

For example, two of our products, Carolube MC (methyl coconate) and Carolube ML (methyl lardate), can both be used as bases for cutting fluids. However, different fatty acid profiles and levels of saturation in these two products generate different lubrication properties specific to their chain length, levels of saturation, and functional alcohol group.
