Esters are Group V base oils and are used in many synthetic lubricants due to their unique properties. Due to the fact that Esters are synthesised by reacting acids with alcohols, their properties such as; viscosity, viscosity index and load-carrying characteristics can be tailored to suit a wide range of applications.
Esters are commonly used for their low temperature flow characteristics, high temperature oxidative stability, biodegradability or as an additive within the oil to improve solubility of other components.
These organic esters add enhanced lubricating properties along with low volatility and good solubility characteristics to your engine and industrial lubricant applications. Most Esterex™ esters are inherently biodegradable, making them an appropriate choice for applications in which a lubricant is in contact with the environment.
- Good thermal and oxidative stability
- Low volatility
- Detergency and dispersancy
Esterex esters are used in automotive, textile, industrial, aviation, turbine and compressor lubricants. They can be used as a stand-alone base stock or in combination with other fluids.
