Tackle corrosion with Clariant's Hostacor

Hostacor IT is a water soluble pre-neutralized, low foaming corrosion inhibitor with excellent ferrous corrosion protection mainly used in cutting and grinding fluids, milling fluids, drilling fluids, and water-based hydraulic fluids (HFA-E, HFA-S).

Hostacor 2125 is a water miscible and oil soluble low foaming strong ferrous corrosion inhibitor, with some non-ferrous corrosion protection as well, mainly used in cutting and grinding fluids. It is a solid product and comes in acid form, offering the formulator full flexibility for neutralization.


  • Excellent corrosion protection of steel
  • Reduces copper and cobalt leaching
  • Low foaming
  • Hard-water stable
  • Boron free

Polyalphaolefins (PAOs)

Polyalphaolefins (PAOs) base oils have emerged as essential in many industries and applications including lubricants, greases, and metalworking fluids. Univar Solutions offers low and high viscosity PAOs that are domestically produced.

Our product portfolio available now:

  • DURASYN 162
  • DURASYN 164
  • DURASYN 166
  • DURASYN 168
  • DURASYN 170
  • DURASYN 174I
  • DURASYN 180I
  • DURASYN 180R
  • DURASYN 180R
  • RB PAO 2 CST
  • RB PAO 4 CST
  • RB PAO 6 CST
  • RB PAO 8 CST

PAOs are low odor, light color base stocks that are suitable for a broad range of applications. They are superior to other lubricants due to higher thermal and oxidative resistance, coupled with low pour points. This makes them the perfect solution for applications at extreme temperatures, including high operating temperatures and low start-up temperatures.

Foam suppressants

Foam can be a huge hindrance for a range of industries, including the Lubricants and Metal Working Fluids sector. In partnership, Univar Solutions and Dow are proud to offer an extensive range of foam control solutions - XIAMETER™ and DOWSIL™.

This range includes emulsions, compounds, and ready-to-use silicones suitable for waterborne systems and neat oils alike – EV fluids, engine or transmission oils; neat or water miscible cutting fluids; metal cleaning solutions; and many other applications. XIAMETER™ and DOWSIL™ emulsions and compounds are comparable to competitive products in the market.
