Industrial lubricants consist of a base oil and different additives. Those additives are responsible for the improved performance, and they transform a “simple” base oil into a high-performance lubricant. BYK offers different additives for industrial lubricants. Our defoamers can be used to prevent foam generation, and to release air from the lubricant. BYK wetting and dispersing additives can be used to suspend solid additives (e.g. graphite, MoS2). Higher solid concentrations can be achieved. BYK rheology additives can be used to tailor the flow behavior of the lubricant. They have a positive effect on the anti-settling behavior of solid particles such as graphite, while our surface additives improve substrate wetting.
