Iso-tridecyl stearate added to our range of functional esters to offer lubricity properties to neat and emulsifiable metalworking fluids.

Nimac is continually expanding our portfolio and the Polylub ITS is a new addition to our range. It is a saturated long chain fatty acid ester that provides excellent metal adhesion and a low friction tribofilm. It may be used as a lubricity additive or friction modifier for a broad range of metalworking applications.

With a high flash point, low odour, excellent lubricity and excellent hydrolytic stability it is used in both oil-based and water-based metalworking fluid applications.

For greases it contributes improved cold flow properties, lower volatility, good thermal stability, low noise level, good air release and water separation.

Iso-tridecyl stearate is typically used as a lubricity improver in steel, copper and aluminium rolling applications
