Hostacor AL

Multi-metal corrosion inhibitor for metal working fluids

Edition Date :
November 30, 2021
Hostacor AL is a phosphorous-free, water-dispersible corrosion inhibitor based on 100% renewable feedstocks recommended for steel-and aluminum cutting & grinding emulsions. The product has a low foaming tendency and contributes significantly to lubrication while at the same time reduces cobalt leaching.

Hostacor AL can also be added to existing metal working fluids for steel to upgrade them for machining aluminum.
