Ivanhoe offers foam control agents and non-ionic surfactants for the lubricant industry. While we focus most of our product development and application efforts on metalworking fluids, Ivanhoe’s foam control agents and surfactants are used in many types of lubricants including:

Hydraulic fluids
Food Grade Lubricants

Ivanhoe Industries has more than 40 years’ experience formulating and testing foam control agents for metalworking fluids.
