Other Products include a range of synthetic lubricants and fluids for the offshore oil & gas industry and sealants & adhesives for automotive and industrial applications.

MacDermid Canning previously used electrically driven positive displacement pumps, but were increasingly concerned about system over-pressurisation, thus causing a safety hazard. Using air operated, double diaphragm pumps avoided this
