WHAT IS FLOWTAC 2000?
Flowtac 2000 is the market leading tacky additive for mineral oil based lubricants from Brad-Chem Ltd.
Our reputation for proven excellent performance is well known throughout the lubricants industry. Brad-Chem also has a reputation for reliability of supply, with our history of consistent supply since 1988.
Flowtac 2000 is a tacky additive. Lubricant blenders add the tacky additive to lubricating oils to make the oil stick to moving parts. End users of these oils benefit; because, it reduces loss of lubrication by dripping or fling-off, and it reduces oil mist in metalworking fluid applications.
WHAT IS FLOWTAC 2000 USED FOR?
Lubricant blenders use Flowtac 2000 to manufacture the following products:
- Slide way oils
- Chain oils
- Wire rope lubricants
- Rock drilling oils
- Textile lubricants
- As an anti-mist agent in metalworking fluids
WHAT GIVES FLOWTAC 2000 ITS GREAT REPUTATION?
The performance is the most important property of a tacky additive for mineral oil. The tacky additive must be able to retain as much of the oil as possible on the moving parts without adversely affecting the friction coefficient.
Flowtac 2000 imparts to the lubricant the best possible combination of adhesion of the oil to part and cohesion within the oil itself, ensuring that it remains in place. We have proven the adhesion by developing cling tests that show the increased mass of oil remaining on a part after a period of rapid spinning. Furthermore, we have also developed string tests that show the improved cohesion of the oil to itself.
Moreover, independent testing has confirmed that Flowtac 2000 does not adversely affect the friction coeffient of the lubricant.
Another important attribute is the ease of handling. Lubricant manufacturers need to be able to produce quickly. The low viscosity and high efficiency of Flowtac 2000 enable manufacturers to fill and blend quickly to consistent high quality.
It is this combination of properties, together with our reliability and continuity of supply, that ensures our worldwide reputation for excellence.
Additionally, for incidental food contact applications in white oils, we can offer Contac 2000, with the same great performance. Moreover, for vegetable oil based lubricants and some esters, we offer Biotac.
