Biosynthetic® Technologies launches a new line of oleo derived additives

Biosynthetic® Technologies announced the launch of their new product line of novel additives for the metalworking fluids market called Biocea™. These products will be available globally, effective immediately.

Biosynthetic Technologies has developed a revolutionary new class of high-performance bio-based additives for the use in metalworking fluids, called Biocea. These novel sustainable additives use the patented estolide technology and are biobased, biodegradable, non-bioaccumulative, and non-toxic. Biocea additives leverage Biosynthetic Technologies' proprietary estolide technology for high demanding water soluble, synthetic, and conventional oil additive applications. Biocea additives are produced with naturally derived oils that not only improve the quality of formulated metalworking fluids, they are also biobased and biodegradable allowing for the manufacture of environmentally acceptable metalworking fluids that are safe and non-irritating to the skin. These estolide based additives enhance the lubricity, polarity, film strength, biostability, hydrolytic stability, and oxidative stability of the fluid, and are developed especially for real world metalworking fluid applications.

"Meeting our focus of innovations for a sustainable future, our new line of additives also meet the exacting standards of metalworking fluid applications and are highly suitable for the manufacture of Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EAL) formulations. These Biocea additives deliver superior performance, especially in the areas of lubricity, oxidative stability and hydrolytic stability as well as wear performance," said Mr. Mark Miller, CEO of Biosynthetic Technologies." These additives perform exceptionally well in a variety of metalworking fluid formulations and represent significant improvements which offer greater product uniformity, cost, and marketability."

"The unique structure of castor oil offers interesting properties, making it appropriate for various industrial applications. Castor oil is valuable due to the high content of ricinoleic acid (RA), which is used in a variety of applications in the chemical industry," said Jeffrey Mackey, Commercialization and Application Lead for the Metalworking Fluids market at Biosynthetic Technologies. "These products are an excellent product line extension to our high-performance estolides and provide a sustainable alternative to the existing raw materials currently used in the metalworking fluids market."

Biosynthetic Technologies understands the importance of sustainable manufacturing practices. Biosynthetic Technologies is committed to sustainability and clearly focused on the responsible use of natural resources in our daily business. The company understands that health, environmental awareness and traceability play just as large a role for consumers as quality and efficacy. Biosynthetic Technologies is aware of its responsibility in this business and sustainability. As such, the company's manufacturing facility is operating with a negative carbon footprint.
