ColaCarb O2C is a low-foaming ether carboxylic acid with excellent emulsification and corrosion inhibition properties and used for metalworking fluids, fire-resistant hydraulic fluids, and rolling emulsions. Cola®Carb O2C is extremely stable against electrolyte and hard water and shows good corrosion protection if neutralized with alkanolamines. As a multifunction lubricant, this emulsifier helps to decrease the complexity of formulation and suitable for long life fluids.
By structure, ether carboxylates are chemically combined nonionic and anionic surfactants. Their structures and performance attributes are customizable by properly selecting hydrophobic alkyl chains and hydrophilic alkoxylate chains. Their unique structures enable their multifunctionality for emulsification, dispersing, surface wetting, corrosion inhibition, and lubrication.
Additionally, ether carboxylates help stabilize emulsions against electrolyte and hard water and thus increase the lifetime of water-dilutable metalworking fluids. In general, they have low to medium foaming tendency and are biodegradable. They have been extensively used in metalworking fluids, i.e., soluble oils, semi-synthetic, rolling emulsions, hydraulic fluids, cleaners, enhanced crude oil recovery, personal care, paint and coatings, and some concrete applications.
