These fluids are essential for the application of industries, owing to their reduced friction between motor elements. In the case of industrial components, they are also used to prevent corrosion, oxidation, and thermal stability. Moreover, on the surface of a metal, rust inhibitors are surfactants that reduce acids. Excluding the United States, worldwide industrial production increased by over 0.1% in the year 2023.

Increasing Demand in Food Processing Sector across the Globe to Boost Market Growth

NSF/H1 heavy-duty food-grade calcium sulfonate is a complex lubricating grease, specifically created for the lubrication of the most demanding applications in the food industry, to comply with the strictest criteria of the industry, which is an over based calcium sulfonate-based grease that also contains anti-oxidants, and additives for severe pressure. Calcium Sulfonate HD2 is a water-insoluble formula for marine applications and was created for the marine lubricants, and offshore applications that operate in the harshest environments. The global maritime transportation industry controls more than 80% of global trade and transports more than USD 3 trillion worth of products annually. In an industrial landscape where efficiency and longevity are paramount, the demand for high-performance lubricants and greases is soaring. Calcium sulfonate, with its exceptional water resistance and temperature stability, is tailor-made for such applications. As machinery and equipment become more advanced and demanding, the need for superior lubrication solutions intensifies. With environmental concerns taking center stage, industries are under increasing pressure to adopt sustainable practices. Calcium sulfonate-based lubricants gain an edge in this context due to their eco-friendliness compared to certain alternative additives, such as zinc-based compounds.
