Chemical Description - Polyoxyethylene Oleyl Ether (5) Phosphate, Phosphoric acid, mixed esters with Oleyl Alcohol Polyglycol Ether (5)


Product Name - Silaphos MDE U185

Product Overview - Silaphos MDE U185 is a clear yellowish liquid with an ester-like odour. It is water soluble after neutralization. It is a multifunctional additive for water based lubricants providing emulsification, antiwear, extreme pressure, and corrosion inhibition. It is particularly effective as a antiwear/emulsifier for water based metal working lubricants. Silaphos MDE U185 is also used in cosmetic formulations. It acts as O/W emulsifier to promote the formation of intimate mixtures of non-miscible liquids by altering the interfacial tension. The surfactant property lowers the surface tension of cosmetic formulations as well as aids the even distribution of the product when used.

INCI - Oleth-5 Phosphate
