Lubricant and grease additives
In the lubricant industry, SEQENS supports its customers for the development and the formulation of metalworking fluids, protection fluids and greases with a wide offer of technologies, ranging from extreme pressure sulfurized additives, emulsifiers, corrosion inhibitors and antiwear additives, tailor-made over‑based calcium sulfonates for metal protection and greases, but also custom manufacturing capacities for incidental food contact lubricants.
The flexibility of Seqens plants enables to offer comprehensive solutions thanks to low- or high- production batch size, adjustable process parameters, customized packaging and labelling and worldwide logistics. Along with flexibility, Seqens emphasizes quality. Our quality-control and quality-assurance teams rely on cutting edge laboratory equipment and well-defined procedures to comply with the highest quality standards.
Seqens is a specialist of calcium sulfonate custom greases. With our unique and flexible synthesis route, we provide innovative solutions to our customers to make them stand out in the market.
Overbased calcium sulfonate to design high-performance custom greases
Extend your offer with unique high-tech greases
Seqens calcium sulfonate greases stand out from conventional greases with their standout compositions and their high performances in extreme conditions. Our unique production process is a key advantage for customizing greases with very specific and advanced features. We offer you the possibility to choose the best-fitted carrier, should it be a mineral, vegetable, or synthetic base oil.
Based on calcium carbonate sulfonate technology, SEQENS greases exhibit outstanding resistance to corrosion as well as excellent extreme pressure and antiwear properties, without any additives. Their thermal and mechanical stability are key advantages for special applications with extreme conditions including warm and very moist atmospheres. SEQENS products outperform other types of complex greases in many ways. Their performances can be enhanced with supplementary additives.
Our latest development – KELICO® V range – opens the door to biodegradable calcium sulfonate greases.
KELICO® V products enable the lubricants’ manufacturers to formulate environmentally acceptable lubricants with exceptional performances.
According to numerous industry standards, KELICO V ester-based overbased calcium sulfonate greases are defined as biodegradable, non-bioaccumulative and non-toxic to aquatic species which makes them suitable candidates for applications where EALs are required. KELICO V overbased calcium sulfonate greases are premium greases for high load and high temperature applications, suitable for extreme environment and particularly adapted for marine applications thanks to their resistance to water and their intrinsic anticorrosion performances.
Seqens successfully addresses the challenges faced by industry, relying on a dedicated R&D team and a performance testing laboratory. We have developed a solid ability to undertake and effectively carry out custom developments from kilo-lab to industrial scale, through a close collaboration between customers and Seqens sales, R&D and production teams.
Our customers rely on our long-standing expertise, our reactivity and our flexibility to ensure a shortened length of development and industrialization projects. As a global player, Seqens has implemented the appropriate organization to fully comply with worldwide regulations in the field of chemical safety, transportation and customs.
Seqens offers an extended range of additives and packages which have been developed to suit the needs of metalworking applications. With an ever-expanding global footprint and a flexible supply chain, we enable our clients to adapt to brand new challenges.
Redesign your formulae with our performance additives
Seqens offers an extensive range of lubricant additives for metalworking fluids and industrial lubricants. Our product portfolio encompasses extreme pressure, anti-wear additives, corrosion inhibitors and emulsifiers.
We also manufacture ready-to-use packages which feature beneficial additive synergies identified through DoE approach (Design of Experiments). Our customers hence increase the performance of their formulated products while reducing the number of listed raw materials.

Extreme Pressure & Antiwear additives
Formulate Environmentally friendly lubricants thanks to our SULFAD® light-colored and low odor sulfurized extreme pressure additives.
SEQENS extends the LUSC list with 3 Extreme Pressure additives: SULFAD® 1710E, SULFAD® 1711E and SULFAD® 1523E.
Our three extreme pressure additives, SULFAD® 1710E, SULFAD® 1711E and SULFAD® 1523E comply with the criteria according to EU Commission decision 2018/1702 and have been added to the Lubricant Substance Classification list (in short: LuSC list).
The LuSC list is a list of substances that have been assessed on their biodegradation, aquatic toxicity, renewability and from an exclusion list of substances. This is a white list of components and packages approved for use in lubricating formulations intended to be submitted to European Ecolabel certification.
Therefore, SULFAD® 1710E, SULFAD® 1711E and SULFAD® 1523E are the best candidates for use in lubricant formulations complying with the European Ecolabel.
Adjust fluid performances to industrial applications severity with ROSCAN® phosphorous-based anti-wear additives and dark-colored sulfurized extreme pressure additives.
Emulsifiers & corrosion inhibitors
Select LOSMA® corrosion inhibitors and emulsifiers, crucial components to formulate complex metalworking fluids.
Emulsifiers and corrosion inhibitors play a crucial role in metalworking fluids, mainly for soluble and semi-synthetic formulations. SEQENS additives have proven for a long time to be effective in emulsions, due to their high performances and their versatility. A well balanced and optimized formulation provides very stable emulsions and guarantees a high level of anticorrosion protection for a long service life.
