An effective solubilizing agent and corrosion inhibitor

Hordaphos® 124

Hordaphos 124 is a yellowish to brown liquid with an ester-like odour. Solid particles may be precipitated at low temperatures but this process is reversible on warming. 
Hordaphos 124 is soluble in common organic solvents such as aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, chlorinated hydrocarbons, esters and ketones. It can be emulsified with water.

Hordaphos 124 is miscible with naphthenic and paraffinic mineral oils and with commercial vegetable and animal oils. Despite this good compatibility its miscibility with mineral oils and other additives used should be tested before use.

For more details see our Video about Hordaphos.
