Metal Working Fluid Additives
Creation of new shapes/designs and materials of construction in the metal working process often results in high friction, high temperature and tool wear. Vanderbilt Chemicals, LLC provides specialized additives to meet these new demands being placed on the metalworking lubricant. Our range of high performance corrosion inhibitors can minimize the ferrous and non-ferrous alloys corrosion by water. We also offer a wide range of extreme pressure, friction reducer and antiwear additives to enhance lubricity and extreme pressure performance and thereby reduce friction and wear between cutting tool and work piece.
VANLUBE® 672 Lubricant Additive
An extreme pressure and antiwear additive for industrial lubricants, including lubricating oils, greases and synthetic fluids. Used as an extreme pressure and antiwear additive in various metal working lubricants such as drawing, stamping and forming compounds.
VANCHEM™ NATD Metal Deactivator
VANCHEM NATD is a corrosion inhibitor and metal deactivator for nonferrous metals in aqueous systems. VANCHEM NATD is suggested particularly for protecting solder, aluminum, copper and copper alloys. It is stable and active at lower pH values than many mercapto compounds. VANCHEM NATD as a chemical intermediate is a stable reactive dimercaptide which is readily alkylated, oxidized to the disulfide, or converted to metal salts.
CUVAN® 303 Metal Deactivator
CUVAN 303 is an oil-soluble corrosion inhibitor and metal deactivator for lubricants, greases, and metalworking fluids. As a corrosion inhibitor, it is effective in protecting copper, copper alloys, cadmium, cobalt, silver and zinc. As a metal deactivator, CUVAN 303 inhibits oxidation by chelating metal ions that catalyze oxidation. Recommended treat levels are from 0.05 to 0.20 mass percent.
