Celebrating 170 years of lubrication excellence!

2024 marks a significant milestone for CONDAT as the company celebrates its 170th anniversary! Based on embodied values, such as its historical one ‘Build to last’, CONDAT has demonstrated its ability to adapt, innovate and reinvent itself over the decades, leveraging its extensive and steadfast expertise in lubrication.

Among its wide range of lubricants dedicated to each industrial needs, the company is offering high performance lubricants dedicated to the steel industry: high-technical greases, fire resistant hydraulic fluids… This allows CONDAT to fulfill your needs for commodity lubricants as well as for specific and technical applications.



Lubrication applications in the steel industry are among the most demanding. They often combine several constraints: high temperatures, fire risk, heavy loads, presence of water or contaminants. Facing these severe productivity issues, steel smelters and rolling mills are always looking for more efficient greases to increase the longevity of their equipment while simplifying their maintenance operations.

Thanks to its 170 years of expertise in greases’ development, CONDAT offers the best grease for lubrication in the steel industry: CONDAT MILLENIUM grease.

CONDAT MILLENIUM makes it possible to ensure lubrication under very severe constraints (temperatures, loads, water …). This last-generation chemistry grease consists of calcium sulfonates with a micelle-based structure. It provides special properties and allows to reach a high level of performance without using high percentages of additives. This grease chemistry provides effective, multi-purpose and long-lasting lubrication. Thanks to its high viscosity index, the lubricant film remains efficient at high temperature.

The outstanding performance of CONDAT MILLENIUM is mainly related to its high-tech properties that you can experience under these videos:

  • Excellent behavior over a wide range of temperatures


In this video, witness CONDAT MILLENIUM calcium sulfonate grease under rigorous high-temperature laboratory testing. At 150°C, CONDAT MILLENIUM grease shows a high resistance to temperature, with minimal oil evaporation. Even after the test, the grease does not dry out and keeps all its lubricating capacity. This high resistance to temperature is particularly appreciated in the steel industry, but also in all industrial applications submitted to high temperature working conditions.

  • High resistance to heavy loads and shocks


Watch as CONDAT MILLENIUM calcium sulfonate grease undergoes the 4-ball extreme pressure test, following the ASTM-D 2596 standardized procedure. Compared to a conventional lithium grease, CONDAT MILLENIUM demonstrates exceptional resistance to loads & pressures commonly encountered in the steel industry, but also in various other industrial applications. Resistance to heavy loads and shocks allows this grease to prevent equipment breakages and reduces your maintenance cost and shutdowns, while increasing your productivity.

  • Excellent stability and resistance in the presence of water


In this third video, the water absorption capacity test demonstrates that the crystalline structure of CONDAT MILLENIUM calcium sulfonate greases can incorporate water (up to 40%) while keeping its properties and a continuous lubricating film. This water-resistant grease is particularly suitable for the lubrication of equipment in steel industry or other applications where cooling is achieved using a large quantity of water.

  • Maintain of the sealing power and keeps its properties under mechanical test with water.


CONDAT MILLENIUM calcium sulfonate grease is now going through a mechanical rolling stability test in presence of water. Following the Shell roller test, ASTM-D 1831, the result is amazing! CONDAT MILLENIUM keeps its consistency and sealing power, whereas a conventional lithium grease becomes fluid under the mechanical stress.

As CONDAT MILLENIUM grease shows extended service life, outstanding anti-wear properties and strong adhesion, it allows a faultless lubrication resulting in prolonged greasing intervals and reduced maintenance costs. All in all, CONDAT MILLENIUM can allow you to reduce your grease consumption by 40% and your maintenance costs by 25%.

Superior to -yet compatible with- the other conventional greases, CONDAT MILLENIUM meets the requirements of heavy steel industry and considerably simplifies maintenance operations.



Leader in fire resistant fluids formulated from organic ester bases, the CONDAT D HFDU fluids range features the latest Factory Mutual Global approval tests and has been certified “Approved Fire-resistant Fluids”. CONDAT D fluids offer high performance and extended operating lifetime to help you control your maintenance costs & consumption. Moreover, these fluids are biodegradable and classified WGK1 according to the latest standards of the Hygiene Institute; they allow the users to limit their polluting rejects in case of leakage and to adopt an environmentally friendly approach.
