Greases

Cargill vegetable oils are suitable for industrial grease applications.

Esters

Cargill esters are plant-based solutions designed to meet manufacturing needs. The unique chemistry of Cargill's ester solutions can be used to create low-voc solutions for different coating applications with high reactivity and low viscosity.

Fatty Acids

Cargill Fatty Acids are plant-based solutions designed to meet manufacturing needs. Typically used in lubricant applications or as an acid source in ester manufacturing, Cargill's Agri-Pure Fatty Acids come in multiple forms and designs to meet application needs.

Lubrication

The most widely used vegetable oils in the lubricant sector are our monounsaturated oils, which combine good stability to oxidation and thermal degradation with liquidity at lower temperatures. For some higher temperature applications, lauric oils such as coconut or palm kernel may be used for optimal stability. Our technical grade fatty acids are used for the production of ester-based lubricant base oils.

Agri-Pure High Oilec Oils

High-Oleic vegetable oils are used for their superior oxidative stability and high flash point.

Industrial Base Oils

Cargill industrial base oils can be used in a variety of lubrication projects.

Lecithin

Industrial lecithin is added to drilling lubricants to reduce friction and provide heat resistance. This additive also increases the viscosity of the lubricant.

Polymerized Vegetable Oils

Polymerized vegetable oils are designed to increase functionality and viscosity.

Metalworking Fluids

Agri-Pure® esters are made from vegetable oils, and are suitable for use in hydraulic fluids and metalworking lubrication applications such as drilling, cutting, and rolling. The unique composition of these fluids offers high flash and fire points, providing safety characteristics necessary for lubrication formulations.

Agri-Pure High Oilec Oils

High-Oleic vegetable oils are used for their superior oxidative stability and high flash point.

Open Air Lubricants

Base Vegetable Oils

Cargill's Base Vegetable Oils are refined from soybeans, linseeds, sunflowers, coconut, and palm kernals. These materials provide a low VOC solution to mineral oils.
