MOLYZOL® & Molybdenum Additives
Molybdenum disulfide is an inorganic compound with the formula MoS2. Its reactivity is low, rendering it resistant to dilute acids. In terms of its appearance and feel, molybdenum disulfide is similar to graphite and, like graphite, it is widely used as a solid lubricant. It is often incorporated as a component of blends and composites where low friction is sought.
Molybdenum trioxide can be formulated with molybdenum disulphide to create a solid lubricating material consisting essentially of an intimate mixture of about 15 to 50 mole percent molybdenum trioxide to molybdenum disulfide. This material is particularly useful under extreme environmental conditions such as very high temperatures or under vacuum.
MOLYZOL® Friction Modifiers and Anti-wear products are widely used as lubricant additives in greases and oils, including engine and industrial oils. The specially formulated molybdenum complexes and chemical composition of the MOLYZOL® range provide lubricants with excellent antioxidation, anti-wear and friction-reducing properties, even under extreme pressure and high temperatures. The MOLYZOL® range has both liquid and powder options available.
MOLYZOL® Liquid Friction Modifier 1001 TDS MOLYZOL® Liquid Friction Modifier 1002 TDS MOLYZOL® Liquid Friction Modifier 1002L TDS MOLYZOL® Friction Modifier 1002A TDS MOLYZOL® Extreme Pressure Anti-wear 2089 TDS MOLYZOL® Extreme Pressure Anti-wear Liquid 4002 TDS
MOLYZOL® Corrosion Inhibitor products are widely used as lubricant additives in greases and oils, including engine and industrial oils. The specially formulated compounds and chemical composition of the MOLYZOL® range provide lubricants with excellent antioxidation and corrosion inhibiting properties, even under extreme pressure and high temperatures. The MOLYZOL® Corrosion Inhibitor range is available in a ready to mix liquid.
Bislube Antioxidants are general purpose primary antioxidants suitable for petroleum and synthetic lubricant bases. Suitable for a variety of industrial oils and engine oils. Bislube BODPA and DND display excellent antioxidant properties and are liquids for easy handling and blending.
Bislube Corrosion Inhibitors are suitable for both petroleum and synthetic base oils for lubricants and greases. Particularly used in industrial and automotive lubricants, greases, metal working fluids and as a corrosion inhibitor for ethanol blended fuels. Bislube Liquid Corrosion Inhibitor TT 33 displays excellent anti-oxidation, corrosion inhibiting and metal deactivating properties.
Bislube Extreme Pressure Anti-wear additives are suitable for petroleum based greases. They display excellent friction reducing properties and corrosion inhibition, even under extreme pressure and high temperatures. Bislube Extreme Pressure Anti-wear DM 89 increases the Timken OK value and weld load value.
Bislube Friction Modifiers are molybdenum containing additives suitable for petroleum based greases. They display excellent antioxidant and friction reducing properties, even under extreme pressure and high temperatures. Bislube Friction Modifier MDBC is a powder composed of an organic molybdenum oxide sulfide dibutyl dithiocarbamate complex that is phosphorus free and can be readily dispersed into a suspension with mineral oils.
Bislube Ultra Nano EP Grease Additive 741 is a high performative alternative to molybdenum disulfide. Its proprietary nanotechnology and composition provides a durable protective film on metal surfaces. Reducing friction, improving extreme pressure and anti-wear properties of greases and lubricants.
12-Hydroxystearic Acid is a mixed fatty acid obtained by hydrolysis of hydrogenated castor oil. 12-HSA is used in grease manufacturing, plastics lubrication and synthesis of other chemicals. It is a high melting, brittle, waxy solid at ambient temperatures.
HCO or castor wax is solid at room temperature and has the function of a surfactant, emulsifier in greases and is also used in a variety of other applications including personal care and industrial. Bisley offers food grade HCO.
Stearic Acid & Stearates
Aluminium stearate is an aluminum salt of distilled hydrogenated fatty acids, used as lubricants in metal processing. A combination of gelling strength coupled with high alumina content and fine particle sizing results in better dispersion in many mediums.
Stearic Acid Triple Pressed is composed of primarily stearic acid, a saturated long chain fatty acid derived from vegetable oils. Its surfactant properties lead to its widespread use in a variety of industries. Upon request Bisley can supply stearic acid with customized specifications depending on your needs.
Carbon Black & Graphite
Carbon Black is used as a thickener in open gear lubricating grease. The resultant grease has increased, heat, moisture and oxidation resistance.
Welan Gum is a thermally resistant biopolymer, used for viscosity and suspension control.
Overbased calcium sulfonate is a highly alkaline liquid, typically used as a thickener, emulsifier and corrosion inhibitor in lubricants. It is compatible with most mineral base oils, white oils, and synthetic base stocks. It is used in the manufacture of calcium sulfonate greases and engine oils. Bisley supplies both TBN 300 (OB) and TBN 400 (HOB) calcium sulfonate with varying flashpoints and specifications depending on your requirements.
Cocamide DEA is made from the reaction of coconut oil and Diethanolamine. Cocamide DEA has the function of a torque reducer, corrosion inhibitor and a lubricant.
MIPA is a clear to yellow liquid used as a surfactant and an emulsifier in grease production. It provides greases with corrosion resistance, lubricity and foam suppression.
DIPA is a solid used as a surfactant and an emulsifier in grease production. It provides greases with corrosion resistance, lubricity and foam suppression.
2-Ethylhexanoic acid (EHA) and its metal salts are used as corrosion inhibitors in coolants. EHA is used to produce polyol ester oil which is a lubricant for refrigerant systems. EHA can be renewably produced. Bisley supplies a high purity EHA containing over 99.5 % EHA.
Bisley Organoclay is a grease additive derived from natural smectite clays and purified into a complex colloidal sodium/magnesium aluminium silicate.
