Say Hello to the Afton Industrial Microbotz®

Afton Chemical has created a family of seven friendly and heroic micro-robot characters, known as the Microbotz®; to represent each of the seven application groups within the Industrial product portfolio.

The Microbotz® are microscopic self-propelled autonomous robots, who operate in a world deep within the lubricant as it pumps through the veins of Industrial machinery. Their role is to patrol the lubricants, deep inside the chemistry, protecting each application from a variety of potential harms such as oxidation, sludge, corrosion or pitting. They tirelessly work to do whatever is necessary to prolong the life of the oil and improve the performance of the machinery.

The Microbotz® are a visual and symbolic representation of what Afton’s Industrial additives are doing day in and day out, within the lubricants of Industrial equipment worldwide as they protect and enhance performance.

Microbotz® Guides

Afton Industrial is in the process of developing a  limited-edition box set of Microbotz® Guides to Industrial Lubricants: one for each of the seven major Industrial lubricant categories. Each Guide is designed to help navigate through the complex world of Industrial  end-use applications, lubrication needs, key OEMs, significant tests and specifications as well as explain the Afton industrial Product range.

To receive a set of the current Guides published so far in the series, as well as future publications and updates, please click here.


Industrial Lubricant Additives Solutions

Wind Turbine
Afton Industrial has been providing wind turbine oil solutions for many years. Our technology reliably runs in thousands of wind turbines around the world, supporting the growing renewable energy market.
Industrial Gear
Afton Chemical’s industrial gear plays a key role in driving the efficiency and productivity you need through tailored solutions.
Turbine, Compressor and Circulating Fluids
Afton Industrial high performance turbine oil additives have built in ‘performance reserves’, which take them comfortably beyond current OEM requirements and enable product differentiation.
As hydraulic pumps continue to get smaller and the power output from them increases, meeting the performance demands on hydraulic oils and additives becomes increasingly challenging.
Afton Chemical’s lubricating grease additives are developed for industrial, automotive and commercial applications. Multifunctional core additive packages are designed to reduce complexity while also maintaining the formulation flexibility of your grease.
Since many operations use the slideway lubricant to lubricate associated gears and hydraulics, Afton offers multifunctional performance for wear and EP protection. And we also offer tackifiers, typically used to improve adhesion and retention on working surfaces during machinery shut-down periods.
Afton tailors metalworking solutions to give you the ability to build efficiencies and profitability while reducing inventories.
