Co-emulsifier for metal working fluids

Genapol O 020

Genapol O 020 is a fatty alcohol ethoxylate and used as a nonionic component in emulsifiable metalworking fluids and water-based hydraulic fluids.

Because of its low HLB-value of about 5, Genapol O 020 is preferably used as a co-emulsifier for anionic emulsifiers with high HLB values.

  • Dispersible in mineral and vegetable oil
  • Medium foaming tendency
  • Suitable as co-emulsifier
