About us

Fochem International has its roots in Germany and has built its foundation on German Technology.

During the early 1970’s the first South African air-micronization plant for the manufacture of colloidal graphite was established south of Johannesburg. This enabled South Africa’s automotive- and defence industry to become independent of international supplies.

Since then, thousands of tons of specialized lubricants have been produced annually for the local market, as well as for global exports.

Today Fochem International is proud of having one of the most advanced technologically and environmentally production facilities of its kinds in the world. Certain production stations are fully automatic and are operated free of human supervision. Our manufacturing process guarantees a consistently high quality end product.

Our unique technical capability, extensive experience in product development, growing reputation for reliability and highly competitive pricing, sets us apart as a preferred supplier on an international level.

It is our obligation and strength to be innovative in helping our customers to solve their particular technical problems. We constantly develop new technologies and optimize our production processes.

Based on this flexibility we can offer a large variety of specialized products.


Products

Our products are manufactured from very basic raw materials as well as high-tech products in our processing plant, whilst our competitors just mix together semi-finished products.
We are able to offer our customers tailor-made products. Try us, you will be pleasantly surprised!

Oil-Based Products

The products Isolat-N and Isolat-NG are being used alone used or in conjunction with water-based release agent in automatic multiple-stage spray systems.
This improves the tool life by reducing the chilling effect of the water. Oil-based products are generally preferred on very hot dies.
