Lubricants that help handle the pressure

While global competition pushes you to reduce costs, global governments demand you reduce emissions, too. One step towards easing these pressures could be a change of lubricant. The right lubricants not only save money via extended machine life and oil drain intervals, they save energy and reduce waste. At PLI, we do more than just supply lubricant, we offer the support and services that can take your production to the next level.

Meeting your challenges with our expertise

It’s difficult to increase efficiency in production while the intense heat and pressure of the process causes costly breakdowns. That’s why you need a partner with technical expertise in the steel industry. At PLI, we’ve developed specialised industry products such as PETRONAS Circula Mill Oils that provide high rust corrosion protection and long-lasting performance.

Reducing emissions

Steel producers are under more and more pressure to comply with government-led initiatives to reduce overall greenhouse gases. Talk to us about our energy saving fluids to help reduce your CO2.


From melting the raw materials to rolling the steel, heat is a hazard throughout the process. We take safety as seriously as you do. As part of our PETRONAS Solutions, we educate maintenance teams in lubricant storage, handling, and best practices.

Heat and energy

Through recycling, the steel industry is leading the way in the circular economy. But the process via Electric Arc Furnaces requires energy and creates heat. Ask us about lubricants that retain viscosity at high temperature extremes.

Innovation and digitisation

Like the steel industry, we use new technology and processes to develop a wider product offering. See how we innovate at our R&T centre in Turin.

Products custom designed for the steel production industry
