Mapping and development of alternatives to chlorinated lubricants in the metal industry (KLORPARAFRI)


The report gives information about the possibilities for substitution of medium-chained chloroparaffins as additives in lubricants for metalworking. The technical, environmental and health effects of the substitutes are assessed. It is concluded that more research is needed in order to fulfil the requirements for technical solutions that have better environmental and health effects than the medium-chained chloroparaffins.
