Metal rolling oils
The most important characteristics of rolling oils are to cool the metal and work the rolls whilst providing the required lubrication to the roll bite and protecting both from corrosion. We offer a range of components for both ferrous and non-ferrous metal rolling do just that. Our synthetic esters, fatty acids, phosphate esters, surfactants, emulsifiers and corrosion inhibitors are suitable for use in hot and cold rolling applications, in neat oils, water-in-oil emulsions and in dispersions.

Components for ferrous & non-ferrous metal rolling
Rolling oil lubricants must be carefully selected depending on the type of metal to be rolled.
Common ferrous metals include engineering steel, carbon steel and cast iron and non-ferrous metals include aluminium and copper. Finished formulations can be based on either neat oils or emulsions. We provide a range of components to suit both formulation types:
- Ester base fluids impart good oxidation stability and provide controlled lubrication
- Self-emulsifying esters offer formulation simplification by removing the need for a separate ester and emulsification package
- Emulsifiers to help deliver excellent emulsion stability, tramp oil rejection and extended fluid lifetime.
With a strong focus on improving formulation performance, our range of solutions improve many aspects of metal rolling formulations and the rolling process itself, as showcased in the table below.
