ColaFax 3376 is a mixture of mono and di-phosphate esters derived from an ethoxylated nonionic surfactant, which exhibits outstanding emulsifying, lubricating, antistatic, detergency, and corrosion inhibiting properties. Cola®Fax 3376 is supplied as the free acid and can be easily converted to the salt of an alkali metal, amine or ammonia by a simple neutralization with the desired base.
This product is particularly effective as a primary emulsifier for vinyl acetate, acrylates, and SBR. The ColaFax ester permits the preparation of high solids polymers with excellent clarity and heat and light stability. It also provides corrosion inhibiting properties when the finished latex is applied to metal surfaces.
ColaFax 3376 exhibits a high degree of tolerance and compatibility with concentrated alkali and alkaline salt solutions. This product is a good hard surface cleaner with moderate foaming properties, and formulations based on ColaFax phosphate esters have good temperature and storage stability. Typical applications for this ester are soak tank cleaners, heavy-duty alkaline all-purpose cleaners, and steam cleaners.
This ester has been found to be a highly effective emulsifier for formulating herbicidal ester concentrates. It exhibits good emulsion spontaneity, stability, and tolerance to hard water. The high electrolyte tolerance suggests its use as an emulsifier in fertilizer solutions.
ColaFax 3376 is recommended for use in water-soluble metal working lubricants and synthetic cutting fluids as it offers extreme pressure lubricity, low coefficient of friction, rust inhibition, and reduced surface tension in high electrolyte solutions
