Neutralizing Agents

Amines are used as neutralizing and or buffering agents in emulsifiable and synthetic fluids. Our products are free of secondary amines and cause almost no cobalt leaching. In many cases they improve the emulsion formation.

Product Highlights

  • Genamin 3920

    Genamin 3920 is as an alkaline component in emulsifiable metalworking fluids, rolling fluids and fire resistant hydraulic fluids. It shows good emulsifying properties and improves the dispersibility and stability of emulsions. Occasionally, Genamin 3920 improves the spontanity and shortens the emulsifying time considerably. Genamin 3920 is also a suitable additive for an adjustment of the buffering capacity. A neutralisation with suitable fatty acids can be necessary.

  • Genamin CH 020

    Genamin CH 020 is used as an alkaline component in emulsifiable metalworking fluids, rolling fluids, metal cleaners, polymer quenchants and fire resistant hydraulic fluids. It shows good emulsifying properties and improves the dispersibility and stability of emulsions. Occasionally, Genamin CH 020 improves the spontanity and shortens the emulsifying time considerably. In contrast to other tertiary amines used in water-based formulations, such as triethanolamine, Genamin CH 020 reduces the leaching of heavy metals like cobalt or copper drastically. This is also true for chromium leaching out of "chromated" or "chromatized" steel parts, in particular when coatings are based on Cr(III)-salts. Due to the high boiling point, Genamin CH 020 is a low volatile component which can be used for high temperature operations, e.g. heavy chip removal operations and emulsion cleaners applied at 80 °C or higher. Genamin CH 020 stabilizes emulsions durable and increases their lifetime also under harsh conditions. Genamin CH 020 is also a suitable additive for an adjustment of the buffering capacity. In Asia, the product is available under the name Genamin CH 020 J.
