Halocarbon Creates Multi-Tier Response Plan to Maintain Supply of Essential Products During COVID-19 Crisis
The spread of COVID-19 is continuing to overwhelm societies and shakeup businesses around the world. As these disruptions emerge at unprecedented rates and magnitudes, businesses are having to adapt and respond in an ever-changing global environment to de-risk supply chains, safely maintain operations, continue production, and ensure the availability of their products.
Traditional and Fluorinated Metalworking Fluids: A Brief Overview
What are Traditional Metalworking Fluids?
Metalworking fluids, also known as cutting fluids or coolants, are liquids used in metalworking operations such as cutting, abrading, and metal forming to reduce friction between the workpiece and the tool. Cutting fluids provide these processes with many benefits, including better surface finishes, longer tool life, lower energy consumption, enhanced precision, and better corrosion protection. Halocarbon offers an elite, niche class of metalworking fluids, formulated through years of expert specialization and breakthroughs in fluorochemistry (PCTFE).
What Dual and Tandem Mechanical Seal Systems Users Should Look for in Mechanical Seal Barrier Fluids
Mechanical seal barrier fluids are lubricants specially formulated to provide safety and reliability in mechanical seals used in hazardous chemical operations. For over fifty years, Halocarbon Mechanical Seal Barrier Fluids remain at the forefront of the petroleum, natural gas, and chemical industries, lubricating and cooling the seal faces in rotary pumps, mixers, and agitators. Halocarbon’s market-leading, chemically inert fluids provide users with the ideal formulation to handle environmentally harmful solutions in a safe, dependable manner. Below are three integral attributes to look for in high-performance mechanical seal oils and barrier fluids.
Halocarbon Oil and Grease Cross-References to Other PCTFE-based Lubricants
For over 65 years, Halocarbon has been a leading producer of fluorinated oils, greases, and waxes designed to withstand the chemically harsh environments of a broad range of industries. To ensure the safety of its consumers while still providing reliability, Halocarbon has designed its fluorinated lubricants to be chemically inert, nonflammable, with high thermal stability, good lubricity, high dielectric strength and a variety of viscosities, densities, and NLGI grades.
Benefits of Halocarbon 0.8 Oil for Calibration Baths
Advanced cryogenic calibration baths require sophisticated fluids that perform uniformly within a wide range of temperatures and produce the highest accuracy possible. Halocarbon formulates Halocarbon 0.8 Oil to guarantee low toxicity, high electrical resistivity, high thermal conductivity, and no water absorption to meet these sophisticated industry demands. As a stable and reliable fluid, its extreme ease in handling combined with premium physical properties make it an ideal fluid for use in this type of application. Below are the benefits of Halocarbon 0.8 Oil as a cryogenic fluid in calibration baths.
Characteristics of Cryogenic Calibration Bath Fluids
Advanced cryogenic baths used to calibrate temperature probes require high-performance fluids with unsurpassed stability, reliability, and usability at extremely low temperatures. Additionally, these fluids must provide precise, repeatable performance to match the demanding requirements of high-tech industries using cryogenic temperature probes.
July 1 Price Increase – Life Sciences
To whom it may concern,
Due to continued increases in the cost of key raw materials and logistics, and other market forces, Halocarbon (Halocarbon) will be increasing the price of its fluoroproducts by ten percent (10%) effective July 1, 2019. This increase applies to Halocarbon’s Trifluoro and Hexafluoro products.
Applications for Refractory Metal Metalworking Fluids
Metalworking fluids for refractory metal operations are engineered synthetic fluids specially formulated to enhance and extend tool life by removing destructive friction at the contact point between the tool and the workpiece promoting improved surface finishes. Halocarbon designs their assortment of sophisticated lubricants with unique PCTFE-based technology to give each refractory metal fluid intrinsically nonflammable and nonreactive properties. Halocarbon Metalworking Fluids provide a safe and reliable solution for effective machining and optimal workability in multiple applications.

The Benefits of Metalworking Fluids for Refractory Metal Processing
Refractory metal metalworking fluids are engineered synthetic fluids formulated to enhance and extend tool life by improving surface finish and removing destructive friction at the contact point between the tool and the workpiece. Premium-quality metalworking fluids provide machine operations with a safe solution for low-risk, effective machining, forming, and shaping of complex substrates. Workpiece quality is improved by removing swarfs from the surface and by reducing the risk of in-process corrosion. Metalworking fluids are chemically inert, nonflammable, and formulated for numerous industrial applications.
Halocarbon uses advanced fluorochemical technology to create unmatched metalworking fluid solutions and is the first fluorinated materials producer to offer PCTFE-based lubricants. Halocarbon’s collection of metalworking fluids include a broad range of viscosities and the option of an anti-corrosion additive.
