Low foaming emulsifier with corrosion inhibiting properties

Emulsogen COL 050

Emulsogen COL 050 is a low foaming ether carboxylic acid with good emulsification and dispersing properties, used for metal working fluids, fire resistant hydraulic fluids (HFA-S) and rolling emulsions.

Emulsogen COL 050 also offers good corrosion protection if neutralized with alkanolamines. The product is extremely stable against electrolyte and hard water. Furthermore Emulsogen COL 050 has good lime soap dispersing power, being able to disperse large quantities of calcium oleate or tallate.
