Lubricants / Base oils

Poly Alpha Olefins (PAO)

We supply the full range of low molecular weight PAO and high molecular weight m-PAO Group IV synthetic base oils. These products are perfect for manufacturers of synthetic engine oil, gear oil and long life compressor oil. Moreover, you can use them to make H1 incidental food contact high temperature chain oil.

Brad-Chem Esters

A selection of speciality and semi-commodity synthetic esters

Brad-Chem High Temperature Chain Oils

Versatile lubricants for general lubrication and for lubrication of chains operating at high temperatures.

Polybutenes (PIB)

We can supply the full range of polybutenes from low molecular weight poly iso-butylene food grade synthetic base oils for lubricants and cosmetics, to solid polybutene rubbers additives for improving the flex and tack of cling film, plastics, PVC, and rubbers materials, as well as improving the crack resistance of asphalt.

Solid Lubricant Dispersions

Brad-Chem 401

A 10% dispersion of colloidal, synthetic graphite in mineral oil, which can be used as a general machine and low to medium temperature forging lubricant. This can be also be used as an solid boundary lubricant additive for chain lubricants and industrial oils.

Brad-Chem 403

A stabilised dispersion of semi-colloidal, synthetic graphite in water. Can be used for chain lubricants, dry film lubricants or for refactory coatings.

Brad-Chem 411

A suspension of colloidal, synthetic graphite in mineral oil, which is ideal for dilution with mineral oil, paraffin or white spirits prior to use in forging, die lubrication and drawing. This can be also be used as an solid boundary lubricant additive for chain lubricants and industrial oils.

Brad-Chem 414

A dispersion of natural graphite in a polyalkylene glycol, which evaporates cleanly at high temperatures leaving a residual graphite film that continues to lubricate at temperatures up to 600 °C. Can be used for high temperature chain oils or as an addtive for polyalkylene glycol ( PAG) based industrial oils.

Brad-Chem 424

A dilutable thixotropic, semi-colloidal, stabilised suspension of high purity synthetic graphite in water for hot forging processes. Can also be used for dry film lubricants or for refactory coatings.

Brad-Chem DP 3523

A molybdenum disulphide dispersion in mineral oil, which can reduce wear, improve efficiency and quieten internal combustion engines. It can be used in plain and roller bearings and slideways where stick slip is a problem. It can be used on high performance gearboxes and as a chain lubricant additive.

Brad-Chem DP 3217

A stable cost effective dispersion of molybdenum disulphide in mineral oil which can be used for internal combustion engine, bearings, slideway, high performance gearbox and chain oils.
