(I don't know if this is the right forum to post this)

Has anyone heard of Seafose?

http://www.pgsefose.com/

It is made by Proctor and Gamble Chemicals.

It is suppose to be some type of synthetic industrial lubricant.

Quote:
3. Lubricant Application: What makes Sefose unique? How does it improve current lubricants?

a. The polarity is what provides the unique characteristics of Sefose that make it an ideal lubricant.

b. Sefose has a very polar molecular structure, so it attracts to metal like a magnet. The polar lubricant lines up along exposed surfaces of the metal.

c. Traditional petroleum-based oils are not polar and therefore are easily “squeegeed away.” So it is necessary to continually replace the oil to maintain a film of the coolant between the tool and the work piece. This causes/drives overuse and tool failure. Use of Sefose in this instance would potentially decrease the amount of lubricant consumed and add to longevity of tool use.

Yea, I looked over the website. I was wondering if someone had a more "plain English" description.

It seems like it is used for paints, lubrication, and machining.

Mostly looks like it's used as a HMW additive for coatings and such. Don't see a ton of use in lubes.

I believe this would be claasified chemically as a "diol."

Dupont is also experimenting with something similar but it is derived from corn oil, a corn-derived polyether diol that can be converted to esters.
