Castor based Lub-chemicals
Castor oil and its derivatives provide many desirable properties for the formulation of industrial lubricants. The polar hydroxyl groups contribute high load-bearing properties to lubricant films with a low coefficient of friction under boundary lubrication conditions. GOLUB are esters of long chain fatty acid having acid and/or hydroxyl functionality in the chain. They are widely used to produce in-situ soaps in metal working fluid applications. They are also applicable to hydraulic fluids, soluble oils and coolants. Specially polymerized Castor Oils are particularly well-suited for the formulation of plug valve greases and lubricants.
