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™ 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.
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.
Stearic Acid & Stearates
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.
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.
Calcium stearate is one of the most commonly used lubricants due to its excellent dispersion properties and highly controlled particle size. Calcium stearate is available as a powder or as a 50% dispersion.
Graphite and Carbon Black
Carbon Black is used as a thickener in open gear lubricating grease. The resultant grease has increased, heat, moisture and oxidation resistance.
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.
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.
Bisley Organoclay is a grease additive derived from natural smectite clays and purified into a complex colloidal sodium/magnesium aluminium silicate. It has high thermal and oxidative stability and does not require the addition of activators. It has thixotropic behaviour, increasing grease performance and protecting against wear and corrosion.
Chlorinated paraffin is a flame retardant which is also used as a coolant and lubricant in metal cutting. Its ability to form 'smooth' metal chloride surfaces that reduce friction are very valuable. Bisley supplies a wide range of chlorinated paraffin.
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.
