Metalworking Fluids
Metalworking Fluids

From cutting fluid to straight oil, we have learned to extract value through metalworking fluid. The team at Gates Engineered Lubricants has the application knowledge necessary to support you in this critical decision making process.

Rust Inhibitors
Rust Inhibitors

Corrosion inhibitors are only as effective as the chemistry you put in them. That is why the team at Gates Engineered Lubricants has worked hard to create products that will protect surfaces before, during, and after your manufacturing process.

Synthetic Fluids

All of our solution synthetics are made of fully water-soluble components and do not contain any oil or emulsifiers. This creates a clear, stable solution when diluted into water. These products are designed to fully reject tramp oil.
