TOTAL Deutschland focuses on sustainability for high-performance cooling lubricants

Berlin, June 2, 2020 – TOTAL Deutschland is expanding its FOLIA product range with the FOLIA G 5000 product, which has been specially developed for grinding applications of steel materials. FOLIA G 5000 is a bio-based, water-miscible cooling lubricant which is free of mineral oils, emulsifiers and boron / formaldehyde releasers so that no pictograms need to be declared in the safety data sheet. 

"Based on the excellent feedback from the market regarding our first FOLIA product, FOLIA B 7000, we have consistently pushed the development of further bio-based cooling lubricants", explains Marius Vermeulen, Sales Director Lubricants at TOTAL Deutschland. "Sustainability is playing an increasingly important role in metalworking. Today, in addition to high performance and impeccable safety standards, lubricants must also meet the highest requirements in terms of health and sustainability, e.g. through excellent skin compatibility. We are thus reacting even more strongly to the demands of our industrial customers, for whom employee protection is a clear priority".

"The basis of the FOLIA product range cannot be classified into the categories of conventional cooling lubricants. FOLIA G 5000 is characterized by longer machine and tool lifetime as well as lower consumption with improved lubricity and cooling performance, resulting in increased productivity compared to conventional cooling lubricants", explains Mathias Ebeling, Key Account Manager Industry in the Metalworking segment at TOTAL Deutschland.

"Thus, FOLIA products also convince with a clear economic added value compared to conventional alternatives".

FOLIA G 5000 is odorless and produces less foam during the application. In addition, it is characterized by its high cooling, lubricating and cleaning properties. As FOLIA G 5000 is compatible with conventional elastomers, machine paints and other machine parts and does not mix with machine oils, it also has a high compatibility.

All FOLIA products are available through TOTAL Deutschland direct sales. Please contact Mathias Ebeling (E-Mail: [email protected], Phone: 0049 162-1333 116).
