KELICO® V: The Unique Range Of Over Based Complex Calcium Sulfonate Biodegradable Greases By Seqens

One-step process from SEQENS

Over the years SEQENS Advanced Specialties acquired a strong expertise in “one-step” carbonatation process and propose a unique range of overbased calcium sulfonate greases. During the “one-step process”, all ingredients are mixed together, sulfonic acid, base oil (vegetable, synthetic or mineral based) and lime. The finished greases are a complex mixture of calcium sulfonate, calcium carbonate under calcite form and a 100 % chosen carrier.

With that single step process, it becomes feasible to produce over based calcium sulfonate without
mineral oil-based precursors.

Unique biodegradable greases technology

SEQENS Advanced Specialties strengthens their support to the Lubricants industry by launching their KELICO® V range of biodegradable greases.

KELICO® V products enable the lubricants’ manufacturers to formulate environmentally acceptable lubricants with exceptional performances.

EAL are bio lubricants that are “biodegradable”, “minimally toxic” and are “not bioaccumulative”.
Let’s have a look at KELICO® V products.


According to numerous industry standards, KELICO® V ester-based overbased calcium sulfonate
greases are defined as biodegradable, non-bioaccumulative and non-toxic to aquatic species which
makes them suitable candidates for applications where EALs are required.

In conclusion, SEQENS opens the way to new opportunities for lubricants’ manufacturers. Being able
to choose 100% of the over based calcium sulfonate greases carriers with SEQENS one-step process
leads to fully customisable greases and open a wide range of possibilities in term of performances
optimisation, new applications as well as health, safety and environment considerations.
