No matter your job title or the nature of your chemical company, your work is overseen by a number of strict regulations applying to materials, formulas and end products. As you may already know, it can be extremely time-consuming to parse and understand all the domestic and international rules and regulations that might apply to your business. However, failing to follow these governmental standards can result in significant financial or operational penalties.

One of the primary elements of the detergents and cleaners are chelating agents. Chelating agents complex calcium hardness and metal ions such as iron. Chelation is a widespread process that occurs in nature. Processes naturally involving complexing agents are photosynthesis in plants, and oxygen transport in all animals. Synthetic chelants act in the same way as biological complexing agents by bonding to problematic metal ions.

Diacid 1550 is a multifunctional product made from sustainable materials and renewable resources. It is resistant to bioactivity, yet still biodegradable. It is globally recognized in the metalworking fluid industry as an excellent co-emulsifier with sulfonates in soluble, semisynthetic and synthetic metalworking formulations. Diacid 1550 also offers corrosion inhibition to protect various surfaces and increased lubrication, particularly in aluminum forming applications, which truly makes it a multifaceted product. Adding Diacid 1550 to your formulation provides corrosion inhibition, co-emulsification and excellent lubrication—ultimately helping you do more with less.
Are you ready to replace oxazolidines or triazines in your formulations?
Combining BIOBAN™ P-1487 and ROCIMA™ BT2S is an extremely versatile non-formaldehyde release solution effective in both synthetic and semi-synthetic metalworking fluids. Combinations including Bioban P-1487 at levels as low as 250 ppm can be effective in mitigating lachrymation concerns. The optimal ratio will ultimately depend on your individual formulation.
