Tomorrow’s technologies. Today.

Examples for our principle “Tomorrow’s Technologies. Today.” are the following product concepts Beruforge 150, Berucoat MC, Berufluid and BECHEM Unopol AL.

Phosphate-free wire coating With the coating lubricants of the Beruforge 150 series, BECHEM offers a real alternative to phosphatisation in wire coating. The reduction of production steps results in a more environmentally friendly, energy-efficient and cost-saving manufacture.

Fluid lubricants allow efficient dry lubrication Berucoat MC – With their anti-friction coatings based on microcapsule technology BECHEM offers coating systems which exceed by far the lifetime of conventional anti-friction coatings on MoS2 basis.

Viscous water replaces oil as a coolant With the water-based, mineral-oil free Berufluid* coolant concept, BECHEM has created a completely new, high-quality coolant category besides the conventional water-miscible and non water-miscible metal working fluids, which allows sustainable and more energy-efficient production.

Emulsion technology in aluminium wire drawing In aluminium wire drawing, BECHEM Unopol AL has introduced a new era and allows the use of emulsions even in rod wire drawing. The product convinces by superior finished products and cleaner working areas.

BECHEM – Your partner for research and development Analytics for our customers

Environmental compatibility and occupational safety, minimisation of friction and wear, increase in efficiency and lifetime are only a few keywords which refer to the permanently growing demands on lubricants. Through continuous improvement of our products and innovative new developments, BECHEM is one step ahead. Systematic innovation management, intensive research and development work as well as modern test equipment are the prerequisites. In the BECHEM laboratories, latest physicochemical testing and analytical systems are available to characterise lubricants, to control their application, to analyse customer specific problems and, last but not least, to find the suitable lubricant solution.

In many application and construction parts, lubricants and lubricant systems are already an integrated component and can no longer be considered separately. The product success depends on how the lubricant is tailored to the specifications. In this context, a high-performance analysis is of utmost importance. When developing liquid and consistent lubricants, important factors are of course the flow properties in the service temperature range. To measure these rheological characteristics of our products, most modern rheometers and viscosimeters are used. Due to continuously increasing service temperatures, the requirements with regard to the temperature stability of lubricants have grown over the past years.




An end of this trend is not yet foreseeable. In the BECHEM laboratories, modern analytical methods such as thermogravimetry and differential scanning calorimetry are applied for quick and efficient analysis of products and raw materials in the high temperature range. Another focus is the characterisation of dispersions which are nowadays required for various lubricant applications. A defined particle size distribution is an especially important quality aspect for solid lubricants and microcapsule containing lubricants and coatings. Besides different microscopes, laser diffraction is also applied for this purpose.



For the manifold surface examinations of construction parts, semi-finished products and raw materials microscopic analyses are essential today. In their analysis, BECHEM uses the highly suitable method of infrared microscopy in addition to the photooptical microscopes. Beyond the classical lubrication of metal materials, the use of lubricants is of growing importance in case of contact with plastics. In this regard, the compatibility between lubricant and polymer material is an important requirement. In our BECHEM laboratories, a variety of test rigs to confirm this material compatibility is available.

BECHEM – Your partner for research and development Optimal climate for innovations – The BECHEM technical centre

In addition to lubricant analysis, the testing of our customers’ construction parts, or even complete construction groups, is of growing importance within the lubricant development. The long-term effects of realistic impacts, e.g. climatic conditions such as humidity and temperature, which influence the lubricant or construction group, have to be determined within a short period of time. In our BECHEM technical centre we have the modern test equipment for this purpose. In our test facilities we can simulate a variety of operating conditions for lubricants used worldwide.
