Emulsogen ELO 200

Emulsifier with excellent solubility in vegetable oils

Edition Date :
November 30, 2021
Emulsogen ELO 200 is a fatty acid ethoxylate which is used as nonionc emulsifier in metal cutting & grinding fluids (emulsions, semi-synthetic) and rolling emulsions. 

It provides excellent emulsification properties in particular for vegetable oils, synthetic esters or combination of these. It dissolves easily in such ester oils to form clear and stable solutions. Emulsogen ELO 200 is highly compatible with other formulation components and can also be used for mineral oil based concentrates. Furthermore the product shows outstanding lime soap dispersing power, being able to disperse large quantities of calcium oleate or tallate.  Emulsogen ELO 200 also acts as anti-wear additives and improves lubricity.
