AIRFRAME

Castrol provide lubricants to help you meet HSE legislation without sacrificing the performance and reliability of your airframes.

Our Liquid Engineers recognise that the aerospace industry is constantly evolving and that we are all working towards a range of important objectives, such as the reduction of overall weight, fuel burn, noise and emission to improve the environmental footprint and meet Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) regulations worldwide.

To achieve the latest environmental targets and reduce carbon footprint, the aerospace industry is starting to use lighter materials, such as composites. That’s why our specialists have developed a comprehensive range of high-performance metalworking fluids and cleaners to help meet the demands of a modern production process in airframe manufacturing for aluminium alloys and composites machining.

 Castrol has strong relationships with the leading Machine Tool Original Equipment Manufacturers and our experts have developed a wide range of lubricating oils to fulfil relevant machine specifications and requirements. Our Liquid Engineers can offer in-depth consultation services on how you can use these products to help you deliver reliability and economic competitiveness
