CEREPLAS™ specialty esters enhance the performance of functional fluids (e.g. in hydraulics), enabling formulators to move away from mineral oils.  These synthetic esters are sold under the CEREPLAS™ trademark.

Adipate esters (e.g. CEREPLAS™ and DTDA and DIDA) are used in oils and grease formulations due to their biodegradability and low temperature performance.  Trimellitate esters are used in applications such as compressor oils and chain oils due to their low volatility, viscosity or diluent performance.  Sebacate esters are used in fields like synthetic engine oils.
