Clariant, a world leader in Specialty Chemicals, today announced that its Industrial Lubricants business will present an invited paper at the STLE 68th Annual Meeting & Exhibition in Detroit, held May 5-9, 2013.
Chad Crocker, Industrial Applications Chemist, will speak on the“Investigation of Additives for Rolling of Aluminum” on Monday, May 6th at 9:30 a.m. in the LaSalle conference room. At its exhibit in Booth 520, the company will showcase signature products, traditionally used in cutting and forming, that have been rigorously tested for expanded use in rolling oils and rolling emulsions. Clariant technical experts will be available at the booth to discuss these technologies, along with product literature covering test results for these new applications.
“This year’s event marks the first time Clariant will participate at STLE under our new brand,” said James Stephens, Clariant business line manager for Industrial Lubricants. “The brand expresses what we stand for high-quality specialty chemical solutions, innovation and sustainability, plus a deep appreciation for the needs of our stakeholders. We believe this initiative to extend the value of our flagship industrial lubricant additives to rolling oils and emulsions clearly demonstrates innovation and appreciation for the changing needs of the industry.”
The Clariant presentation will look at various types of additives and how they affect physical characteristics of a finished rolling oil for aluminum. Drawing on scientific analysis and testing, Clariant experts will provide insights into developing formulations for lubricants with exceptional performance and an optimal balance of properties.
Featured products will include Clariant Emulsogen®solutions for rolling emulsions; Clariant Hostagliss® base fluid materials, encompassing polyol and polymeric esters for lubricity; and Clariant Hostacor® products for inhibiting corrosion in rolling oils and emulsions.
