Member - AFULudine

AFULudine SAS is a young start-up company, created in September 2016. It is specialised in synthesis chemistry and surface treatment. It is the outcome of the research studies of laboratories of Franche-Comté University (FRANCE). The founding members, all university researchers, have developed an innovative and ecological lubricant for material shaping.

In most industries, different types of oils are used. Some are dangerous to the health, all lead to a necessity of the cleaning of the processed materials. AFULudine was created to bring about a new solution. This company is based on the research and then after patent of three university researchers, each in their own field, Mr LALLEMAND in surface treatment, Mr MELLOT in organic synthesis and Mr ROIZARD in tribology. The original idea came from Mr LALLEMAND, who thought of using a non-oily lubricant that would save the costly steps of cleaning the materials. The lubricant is made from water and/or alcohol plus the active ingredient, synthesized by the company. The process is in the metal treatment, as the active molecules will attach themselves to the surface, creating a thin layer on the metal. The main advantage is the fact that after the application, the solvent evaporates and leaves behind just our active molecules. This means after one application, you can work the material even if you spayed it up to 7 months beforehand. The lubricants are as good as the oils used today. Today, the molecule can also be used as a penetrating fluid or a cleaner in certain cases.
