Solvents for lubricants, greases and industrial oils

Lubricant solvents are chemicals used to dissolve or dilute other substances, such as industrial oils and greases, and change the viscosity of anti-friction coatings. Their main applications include equipment cleaning, formulation of solid lubricants and resin binder systems, and support in polymerization processes.

Introduction

Solvents are used to dissolve residues and degrease equipment used for applying coatings. In addition, they are used as carrier fluids for solid lubricants and resin binder systems, and to distribute the lubricant to the precise location where it is required for specific applications.

What are the main characteristics of solvents for lubricants, greases, and industrial oils?

Solvents for lubricants, greases and industrial oils each have specific characteristics that make them suitable for certain applications.

  • Lubricant solvents are used to dilute or remove lubricants from surfaces, they can be composed differently and have different properties such as flash point, viscosity and solubility.
  • Grease solvents are used to remove grease from surfaces. They can be alcohol-, chlorine-, or hydrocarbon-based and have properties such as solubility, viscosity, and ability to remove grease.
  • Industrial oil solvents are used to dilute or remove oils from surfaces. They can be petroleum-based or synthetic and have properties such as solubility, viscosity, and ability to remove oils.
