Pilot Chemical Initiates

November 14, 2005

Pilot Chemical, Red Bank, NJ, has devel- oped its sulfonate transition program to help petroleum sulfonate users adjust to the exit of Shell from the market. The program aims to help petroleum sulfonate users make the switch from discontinued natural sulfonates to Pilot’s synthetic sulfonates, which company executives said are more consistent and reliable.
In February Shell announced that base oil manufacturing at its Martinez Lubricants plant will cease as of Sept. 1. Among its offerings, the plant has been supplying natural petroleum sulfonates used as emulsifiers in metalworking fluids, industrial lubricants, mining chemicals and other applications. Pilot’s full line of synthetic sodium sulfonates under the Aristonate name offer an easy alternative to the need to reformulate to different emulsification systems altogether, Pilot executives said.
