Often called Anti-foaming agent, or air release agent, Anti-foams/Defoamers are designed to reduce or hinder foam formation in an industrial liquid. Generally they are either oil or water based. Water based defoamers are usually oils or waxes dispersed in the aqua layer, typically a type of ester, soap or alcohol. Oil based defoamers are usually insoluble in the foam medium and work as a surface active agent on the bubble layer to release air and agglomerate trapped into into large bubbles that rise to the surface to release. Defoamers are generally low in viscosity to rapidly flow over the foamy surface for fast knock-down.

Anticorrosive/ Rust preventatives prevent a metal surface from corrosion. This is the reaction of the metal with water and air in optimum conditions to form an oxide, or rust.

Sulphonates are formed by the esterification of a sulphonic acid; they form soaps which act as surface active agents in demulsifying and cleaning industrial processes. In lubricant applications different metals are available (eg: Calcium, Magnesium, Barium), along with differing levels of sulphonation and alkalinity.

Petcal™

Range of Calcium Sulphonates.

Petsul™

Range of Sodium Sulphonates.

Viscosity Index Improvers are products for the modification of Viscosity at varying temperatures. Engine oils require modification to allow flow at low temperatures but to also thicken in use at high temperature to maintain lubrication in critical areas, Gear oils require modification and product need to be shear stable due to the aggressive nature of gears. Further the carrier oils have an impact on the oxidative stability of the product in use, and should be considered in the formulation.

Petvim™

Range of Viscosity Modifiers.

Gear Oil Additives are extreme pressure additives to stand the stress and strain of a gear box oil in use. Specific chemistries are used (particularly Sulphur) to impart such properties, with advances all the time in carrier oil for stability and lower odour variants.

Petadd™

Range of specialty additives, including -

A range of specialty Hydraulic Fluid additives.

Petrico’s range of Pour Point depressants.

High quality gear oil additives.

Many lubricant (or other products like paints, inks, cleaners etc) contain several components in their formulation. These can be the obvious Dispersants, or Demulsifiers often found formulated together in an Additive Package, or a Viscosity modifier to improve flow properties, but it can include small ‘performance’ additives or components to aid Friction, or kill bugs as in a Biocide, or add extra extreme Pressure property (eg Graphite or sulphurised olefin).
