Since the beginning of the industrial revolution chemical additives have been indispensable to metal processing such as cutting, stamping, forging or rolling and also assist in milling, drilling, sawing and many other processes.

Chemical additives for metalworking continue to be developed to match the progress made in mechanical engineering and even make new developments possible. Two examples that stand to the fore are the controlling of heat development and the protection of materials from physical and thermal stresses.
