Metalworking Fluids

Metalworking fluids, particularly aqueous cooling lubricant emulsions, are often in use for months and years in open circuits in metalworking machines. Reliable preservation against bacteria, yeast and fungi requires regular treatment with highly effective biocides.

LANXESS is particularly committed to the introduction of novel formulations for long-term protection of aqueous cooling lubricants, with a pointed focus on the interests of workplace safety.
