Co-emulsifier and neutralizing agent for metal working fluids

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 spontaneity 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.
