Textiles, Home & Building Appliances

A high degree of wearing comfort, versatility and maximum wear resistance – while ensuring an enconomic manufacturing process – textile products are expected to combine all these traits. In addition, manufacturers are challenged with choosing materials that are safe for humans as well as for the environment. Our brands Chem-Trend, Klüber Lubrication and OKS offer the following benefits:

  • Lubricants for spinning, spooling, plaiting, knitting, weaving and moulding machines as well as tentering frames, steaming and dyeing machinery: Klüber Lubrication
  • Release agents for the production of polyurethane and rubber shoe soles: Chem-Trend
  • Lubrication of high speed bearings in knitting machines: OKS

In home and building technology, the challenge is to unite two major requirements: on the one hand the aesthetic characteristics of the product, and on the other hand the enhanced durability and robustness of it. This balancing act is achieved by the products of SurTec, Klüber Lubrication and Chem-Trend:

  • Phosphate-free pre-treatment of metal against surface rust: SurTec
  • Chromate-free passivation for Zn and Zn-Ni coatings with maximum corrosion protection for window fittings: SurTec
