ColaLube 3410, an ashless, oil soluble, complex long chainlength aliphatic phosphate ester, provides outstanding extreme pressure (EP), anti-wear, lubricity, and corrosion inhibition properties in a variety of metalworking fluid formulations. While developed for use in severe drawing and stamping applications, it can be readily utilized in synthetic, semi-synthetic, soluble oil and straight oil based systems for use in ferrous, non-ferrous, and stainless steel metalworking. Also, it is effective in increasing the OK Timken Load in gear oils. ColaLube 3410 is supplied in the free acid form and contains no heavy metals.
ColaLube 3410 is recommended as a replacement for chlorinated paraffin in almost every metalworking operation. ColaLube 3410 is oil soluble, however, it can also be incorporated into water-dilutable formulations.
A guide to follow for replacing a chlorinated paraffin is to work on a one for one basis, Cola®Lube 3410 for % Chlorine. An example, a cutting oil contains 6% of a 50% Chlorinated Paraffin bringing to the formula 3% Chlorine, therefore, one would substitute in the product, 3% ColaLube 3410.
ColaLube 3410 possesses a high acid number; therefore, additional alkaline components, such as triethanolamine, must be made. In oil systems, ColaLube 3410 is not compatible with other chlorine replacement additives, such as over-based sulphonates.
ColaLube 3410 is recommended for all metalworking applications, and has successfully replaced chlorine at levels up to 15% in the formulations. Levels of chlorine above 15% should be formulated carefully.
