Elco / Built on our ability to solve problems

Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio since its inception, Elco is basic in sulfur and phosphorous chemistry. We focus on additives for extreme pressure, wear protection, friction modification and corrosion inhibition. Due to our strong position in these basic chemistries we are able to offer full performance packages as well as individual components for formulating flexibility.

Elco’s lubricant additives business began 85 years ago as an innovative producer of gear oils which solved the demanding hypoid gear lubrication challenge of the day. Today our product line includes sulfurized products (including light color, low odor), dithiophosphate chemicals, and other specialized lubricant packages to meet our customer’s formulating needs. Our products serve the metalworking fluid, grease, hydraulic oil, slideway lubricant, gear oil, and other industrial lubricant markets.
