METAL CUTTING OIL ADDITIVE - GW 1050


GW 1050 sodium petroleum Sulphonates are unique materials because of their dual function as surfactants and rust inhibitors. The polar nature of the sulfonate end of the molecule, while the hydrocarbon tail provides the bridge to the non-polar phase, it functions as a typical anionic surfactant directing it with water or other polar materials.


FORMULATION
GW 1050 can be used in selected industrial and metalworking applications at concentrations of 10% to 22% by weight.

 

APPLICATIONS

 

Metal Working Fluid

Sodium sulphonates have a long history of use in metalworking fluids. GW 1050 acts as emulsifiers and corrosion inhibitors. In the liquid system, sulfonates can separate oil and water from each other so that they can coexist and form an emulsion.

Recommended SPS: GW 1050L, GW 1050M

 

Corrosion Inhibitor Compounds

High molecular weight sodium sulphonates adhere to metal surfaces and provide excellent moisture barriers. GW 1050H can be combined with petroleum oils, waxes, petrolatums and various synthetic materials. Finished products are used in applications such as protective oils and automotive rust proof formulations. GW 1050H is also compatible with a wide variety of solvents when thin films are desired. On solid surface, sulfonates work like glue, oil clings to metal. By chemically binding oil to metal, sulphonates prevent water and air from reaching the metal's surface.

Recommended SPS: GW 1050H

 


Ore Flotation
GW 1050 sulphonates have been used as flotation agents for various metals and minerals. The ability of sulphonates to wet the surface of the particles makes the ore hydrophobic. This allows the ore to adhere to the air bubbles and transport to the surface of the foam.

In ore flotation, sulphonates bind ore particles to air bubbles, in a foam, allowing them to rise and leave the rock.

Demulsifiers

GW 1050H grade sulphonates can act as de-emulsifiers. A bulky structure prevents them from forming a continuous protective film around a droplet. This allows the two droplets to touch each other and form a large droplet that separates from the solutions.

Recommended SPS: GW 1050H

 

Engine Oil and Diesel Additive

Sodium sulphonates are generally converted into calcium or barium salts for this application; however, sodium sulphonates may be preferred in some cases. Detergent and anti-rust properties are the most important functions of the GW 1050H when used as an additive.

Overbasing is a process that strengthens a solfonate molecule with extra atoms like calcium and magnesium so they seek out and neutralize excess acid in a mixture. This process is often used in engine oil additives.
