Metalworking Fluids Extreme Pressure (EP) Additives
Tri-iso distributes a wide range of extreme pressure (EP) additives that allow formulators to produce high quality metalworking fluids. Extreme pressure (EP) additives are lubricant components that chemically react with the metal surface to be protected, forming a sacrificial coating that prevents two metal surfaces from welding together under the high temperature and high pressure that occur during boundary lubrication.
Metalworking fluids extreme pressure (EP) additives produce a surface that is softer than the unprotected base metal. Tri-iso distributes extreme pressure (EP) additives based on sulfured carriers and chlorinated paraffins.
Additionally, Tri-iso distributes sulfur-nitrogen extreme pressure (EP) additives for water miscible metalworking fluids (emulsifiable aka soluble oils, semi-synthetics, and full synthetics).
Finally, Tri-iso distributes passive extreme pressure additives which tenaciously bond to the metal surface but do not chemically react with the metal.
