The product development of AQUASLIDE started in 2015. In the following years it underwent an intensive test phase under real-life conditions in selected, representative metalworking companies, which was accompanied by the preparation of many detailed analyses and studies. The field reports demonstrated quickly that an oil-free application works well, provided that the composition is right. Therefore, the challenge was to fine-tune the formulation until all requirements concerning product use, plant maintenance, disposal and safety at work were satisfied. This finally culminated in the launch of a product line that could well revolutionise the metalworking industry in the field of conventional cooling lubricants.
The initiator and head of AQUASLIDE product development is chemist DI DR. Johann Kellersperg, who had previously come to the attention of the community for the development of the world’s first biological lubricants. He dedicates his life to developing product innovations to optimise the technical conditions for the industry while improving the protection for human beings in their working environment and for nature. AQUASLIDE more than fulfils this objective.
