ColaCarb O5C is a combined non-ionic and anionic emulsifier for use in metalworking fluids and dispersing lime soap. As a co-emulsifier, Cola®Carb O5C is used to increase the lifetime of water-miscible metalworking fluids. This emulsifier also provides cleansing and lubricating action and easily processable in aqueous as well as in oil-based formulations.
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.
