Biosynthetic Technologies Announces The Launch Of A New Line Of Oleo Derived Additives For Metalworking Fluid Applications; Biocea™

Biosynthetic® Technologies has announced the launch of their new product line of novel additives for the metalworking fluids market called Biocea™. These products will be available globally, effective immediately.

Biosynthetic Technologies has developed a new class of high-performance bio-based additives for the use in metalworking fluids, called Biocea. These novel sustainable additives use the patented estolide technology and are biobased, biodegradable, non-bioaccumulative, and non-toxic. Biocea additives leverage Biosynthetic Technologies’ proprietary estolide technology for high demanding water soluble, synthetic, and conventional oil additive applications. Biocea additives are produced with naturally derived oils that not only improve the quality of formulated metalworking fluids, they are also biobased and biodegradable allowing for the manufacture of environmentally acceptable metalworking fluids that are safe and non-irritating to the skin. These estolide based additives enhance the lubricity, polarity, film strength, biostability, hydrolytic stability, and oxidative stability of the fluid, and are developed especially for real world metalworking fluid applications.

“Meeting our focus of innovations for a sustainable future, our new line of additives also meet the exacting standards of metalworking fluid applications and are highly suitable for the manufacture of Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EAL) formulations. These Biocea additives deliver superior performance, especially in the areas of lubricity, oxidative stability and hydrolytic stability as well as wear performance,” said Mr. Mark Miller, CEO of Biosynthetic Technologies. “These additives perform exceptionally well in a variety of metalworking fluid formulations and represent significant improvements which offer greater product uniformity, cost, and marketability.”
