Regulatory: US (TSCA), Canada (DSL), Philippines (PICCS), Korea (KECI), New Zealand (NZIoC), China (IECSC), Taiwan (TCSI)

Cola®Carb O2C is a low-foaming ether carboxylic acid with excellent emulsification and corrosion inhibition properties and used for metalworking fluids, fire resistant hydraulic fluids and rolling emulsions. Cola®Carb O2C is extremely stable against electrolyte and hard water and shows good corrosion protection if neutralized with alkanolamines. As a multifunction lubricant, Cola®Carb O2C helps to decrease complexity of formulation and suitable for long life fluids.
