AEROSIL® fumed silica and AEROXIDE® metal oxides for lubricants (Oils)

A substance (often a liquid) introduced between two moving surfaces. Lubricants are used to reduce friction, improve efficiency and reduce wear. Additional function of dissolving or transporting foreign particles and of distributing heat.

AEROSIL® for metal working fluids and wire drawing lubricants:

  • is a mixture of AEROSIL® 200 and a highly dispersed fumed aluminum oxide. It was designed for aqueous, highly polar liquids and can be used in metal working fluids and wire drawing lubricants. One effect is rheology control (thixotropic effect). Furthermore it stabilizes lubricating solid particles (e.g. MoS, graphite) and can improve the metal surface in some applications. 

  • is a fine-particulate, pure aluminum oxide with high specific surface area. It can be used in metal working fluids and wire drawing lubricants to improve the metal surface in some applications.
