Greases for agglomeration, continuous casting, cold rolling, hot rolling

CERAN range: High-technology greases containing complex calcium sulfonate, developed by TOTAL over many years. The manufacturing process involved in making these greases requires high levels of expertise in order to achieve the exceptional levels of performance provided by the CERAN range.

  • Exceptional anti-wear properties and resistance to heavy loads.
  • Exceptional resistance to water, facilitating operation in environments containing up to 40% water, without any degradation in grease performance
  • Excellent mechanical stability and high shearing resistance
  • Good performance at high temperatures
  • Very good resistance to oxidation and corrosion

Hydrodynamic lubrication oils for MORGOIL and MORGAN-type regulator bearings

CORTIS MS: Versatile anti-wear circulation oil, recommended in particular for use when there are risks of pollution by water. It meets the lubrication requirements for DANIELI and MORGOIL type bearings used in steel rolling mills.

  • Excellent resistance to oxidation and thermal stability
  • Longer lubricant service life, even when subjected to high temperatures.
  • Excellent demulsification properties approved by high and low temperature tests and confirmed by the UEC dynamic demulsification test.
  • Very good anti-wear properties.
  • Optimum protection of equipment against rust and corrosion at high temperatures.
  • Ashless additives which prevent the formation of deposits, ensuring that high levels of filterability can be maintained.

Fire-resistant hydraulic fluids

HYDRANSAFE range: Fluids specifically developed to limit the risks of a fire spreading in the event of a leak.

  • Excellent filterability and oxidation resistance performance
  • Factory Mutual approvals
  • Meet the specifications laid out in the ISO HFAE, HFAS, HFC, HFDU and HFDR standards
  • Biodegradable version: HYDRANSAFE HFDU offers the best possible levels of biodegradability (in accordance with the OECD 301B standard).

Sealing oil for gasometers

GASO AW: Protects metallic surfaces that come into contact with water, dust and corrosive fumes. Excellent demulsification and waterproofing properties.

Insulating fluids for EDT (Electric Discharge Texturing) machines

DIEL MS: Very good filterability. Lower fluid consumption. Product in compliance with EU directives on VOC emissions (Volatile Organic Compounds).

Oils for Industrial Gear systems

CARTER ALS: Non-staining gearbox oil recommended for lubricating gears in casings in the aluminum, stainless steel and copper rolling industries.

  • Excellent properties when used in extreme pressure conditions and anti-wear properties providing lubricated components with high levels of protection
  • Very good resistance to oxidation, ensuring a prolonged oil service life
  • Very good anti-foaming properties and very good resistance to the formation of emulsion with water

KASSILA GMP: Mineral oil for industrial gearing units which operate under very high loads and are subject to repeated shocks. Contains graphite and molybdenum disulphide. Excellent thermal stability. Reinforced protection against corrosion and micro pitting.


FINAROL: Specifically developed for the iron and steel industry and the vehicle manufacturing sector. For protecting and mild forming of steel and electro-galvanized sheet metal.

Protection oils

OSYRIS: Oils for all types of metals, designed to protect components from the risks of corrosion during storage and transport. Can be applied using quench, spray and brush techniques and removed using solvents and detergents. We have a wide range of protection oils depending on the desired properties of the protective film.

  • Nature and thickness of the film: oily, waxy or solvented.
  • Resistance over time: protection between operations with water-repellent effect or longer-lasting protection.


FINASOL: Degreasers used to clean engines and miscellaneous machinery components without affecting the quality of the parts cleaned.
