Polymer manufacturer Solvay Specialty Polymer (Solvay) has appointed experienced Netherlands-based lubricant supplier FenS as European partner for its Fomblin PFPE range of lubricants.

With over 30 years of involvement in the lubricant industry, FenS’ appointment will see the company adding Solvay’s Fomblin range to its current portfolio of synthetic and fluorinated lubricants, in addition to providing technical support, service and market knowledge. 

The non-flammable and non-volatile nature of FenS’ lubricant portfolio has seen its wide-spread application across the oxygen and gas industry. 

Specialist lubricants are generally required within the industrial sector due to their chemically inert nature, reducing the risk of fires, explosions and decomposition of the lubricant. 

Commenting on the appointment, Dries Steijnen, Sales Director, Channel Partners MEMA, Solvay, said, “FenS is characterised by its high involvement and extremely high service level.” 

Solvay’s FOMBLIN PFPE lubricants are designed to meet environmental challenges present across industries ranging from automotive and oil and gas to aerospace and semiconductor.
