GREEN Technologies

Metalloid’s goal is to be recognized as the leader in “green” lubricant technology through the utilization of botanical technologies.  These botanical technologies incorporate natural resources that are friendly to us and the world we share.  We have focused our formulation technology on eliminating the dependence on petroleum based products, hazardous products and the “business as usual” approach to specialty chemical technology.  We have been successful in developing botanical based fluids that eliminate the use of chlorine and other hazardous ingredients.  Our botanical technologies are formulated with such earth friendly ingredients as rapeseed oil, sunflower oil, soybean oil and castor oil as well as a host of other botanically derived resources.

What benefits can be achieved by using botanical based products?

  • Elimination of VOC’s
  • Cleaner and safer plant environment
  • Elimination of hazardous products such as petroleum oils and chlorinated paraffins
  • Improved operator acceptance
  • Improved heat resistance in all processes resulting in tool and die life savings.
  • USDA BioPreferred Approved Products
