Emulsifiers for metalworking fluids

Emulsifiers from renewable resources

Caring about nature


Most of our emulsifiers for metalworking fluids are environment friendly. Our non ionic emulsifiers are mainly based on glycerol fatty acid ester and sorbitanester chemistry. In general, glycerol fatty acid ester based products are used as primary emulsifiers which also improve lubrication, whereas sorbitanester based products are used as co-emulsifiers.  Furthermore we have emulsifying ethoxylates and surfactants that incorporate both ethylene oxide and propylene oxide to provide lower foam and good detergency.


Their main benefits are: 

  • Excellent emulsifying and stabilizing properties

  • Good lubricating properties 

  • High solubility in base oils 

  • Excellent toxicological, ecological and dermatological properties (no skin irritation) 

  • Based on renewable resources 

  • Low water hazard classification (WGK 1) 

  • Low foaming tendency 

  • Good heat stability

Our products can be used with most base oils. To do so, emulsifiers with precisely adjusted HLB values are needed. This can be achieved by blending emulsifiers with appropriate co-emulsifiers.

Our regional technical service will assist you in finding the right formulations. Rely on our long-standing experience and know-how and save valuable time.

RECOMMENDATIONS - TOP SELLERS AND FREQUENTLY EMPLOYED PRODUCTS
  • TAGAT® V 20 - Outstanding primary emulsifier for low foaming ester oil based lubricants that acts in addition as co-emulsifier for mineral oil based lubricants to improve emulsion stability 

  • TEGIN® O V - Applied as hydrophobic co-emulsifier for adjusting required HLB values for specific oil qualities, it not only stabalizes emulsions but also significantly improves lubricity properties of water-mixed emulsions

  • TEGO® STO 85 V - Primary emulsifier for environmentally friendly lubricants based on paraffinic oil that shows excellent emulsion stabilizing properties

Brochure "Emulsifieres for Metalworking Fluids"

In water miscible metalworking fluid  formulations, emulsifiers constitute one of the most essential components. As an integral part of metalworking fluid concentrates, emulsifiers enable stable selfemulsification of the concentrate when diluted in water.
