Rising Quality Standards and Automation in Industries are Expected to Drive the Growth of the North America Metalworking Fluid Additives Market

Metalworking fluid additives are essential components in forming metalworking fluids for industrial applications, extending machine and tool lifespans, reducing friction, preventing corrosion and adhesion, and efficiently dissipating heat during machining. These additives offer significant advantages, such as extreme pressure enhancement through high molecular weight, reduced volatility and odor in tramp oil, and improved workpiece visibility. Emulsifiers ensure stability in fluid emulsions, regardless of water hardness, while metal and chlorine-free lubricity additives enhance friction reduction and emulsification properties. Quench additives improve quenching performance, particularly in mineral oil based fluids, with exceptional deposit and oxidation control.
