The use of synthetic grease products with increased lubricity and optimized evaporation behaviour is to lead to a reduction of abrasion and surface contamination and thus to improved surfaces. As the composition of the oils is very complex it is essential to characterize the constituents in order to be able to better assess their interaction during the rolling process. For this purpose various analytical chemical methods have been examined to establish their suitability for goods receipt and process checks on new types of rolling oils. Parallel to that, company rolling tests as well as laboratory simulations of the influencing variables of the rolling process were carried out with lubricant formulations of the new type in order to make it possible to draw conclusions starting from the changed chemical composition on the rolling characteristics and the long time-stability of the emulsion. In the present report it was possible to evaluate fundamental parameters qualitatively and quantitatively, that have a significant influence on the quality of fine sheets in the production process.
