Lubricating oil additives (LOAs) are used to enhance the performance of lubricants and functional fluids. Each additive is selected for its ability to perform one or more specific functions in combination with other additives.
Rust Preventive Oil Additive, is a soft waxy material made by blending various inhibitors and basically consists of a barium soap of oxygenated hydrocarbon. Rust preventive additives are also used for effective salt spray protection.
Metalworking fluid (MWF) are used to cool and/or lubricate metal workpieces when they are being machined, ground, milled, etc. MWFs reduce the heat and friction between the cutting tool and the workpiece, and help prevent burning and smoking.
The components of lubricants are divided into base oils & additives. Lubricating greases contain a certain amount of thickening agents. It can be assumed that biodegradability is determined by base oils & toxicity is determined by the additives.
Petroleum Sulphonate is obtained from sulfonation of base oil, neutralised by Sodium Hydroxide. The Product mainly works as a Surface Active Agent, Emulsification & Dispersion of Liquid's, Inhibition of Rust & Corrosion etc.
A phosphite in inorganic chemistry is a salt of phosphorous acid. The phosphite ion (PO33−) is a poly atomic ion with a phosphorus central atom. Its molecular geometry is approximately tetrahedral like ammonia.
