Emulsifiers for emulsion-type metalworking fluids
Clariant offers a broad portfolio of non-ionic and anionic emulsifiers especially suitable for metalworking fluids. These products, trademarked mainly as Emulsogen® and Genapol®, are developed and screened specifically for applicability on metalworking fluids, based on Clariant’s decades of experience in this industry.
Metalworking fluids with less harmful ingredients that help to reduce the impact on the environment represent the first choice on the market.
Also, the manufacturing industry is relentlessly upgrading and striving for novel processes and superior technologies, with the result that production processes are accelerated. The metalworking fluids used are applied at increasing pressure, which leads to the formation of foam in the fluid reservoirs of the machinery: this can cause malfunctions or increase maintenance efforts.
In this regard, the Emulsogen MTP Range stands out for the low foaming behavior that it provides. All five products from this range are low foaming and respond to the needs of different kinds of formulations, representing a true solution for various formulators.
Clariant has developed and offers a broad portfolio of multifunctional emulsifiers with a superior low foaming profile that also are label-free and protect our environment and people‘s health.
Among other benefits, the emulsifiers for emulsion-type metalworking fluids provide:
- low foaming tendency
- good oil solubility
- superior low temperature behavior
- lime soap dispersing agents that provide hard-water and electrolyte stability
- excellent wetting properties
- a broad range of HLB*
- a low human and aquatic toxicology
*HLB = hydrophilic-lipophilic balance
