UCON™ Polyalkylene Glycol Base Stocks

Ucon™ polyalkylene glycol base stocks feature excellent lubricity, high viscosity indices, low pour points, clean burning properties, excellent stability, and gas solubility. They can be controlled and varied to achieve a level of performance not possible with natural oils and lubricants.

The water-soluble base stocks are commonly used in the fiber, metal working, and the sugar beet processing industries. The water-insoluble base stocks are preferred when a lubricant is needed to be combined with other natural oils, organic solvents, plasticizers, resins, or gums.
