“The theory that more is better is usually the case in our industry, with an assumption that you need more phosphorous content for an ester to perform well with regards to lubricity. With Hostaphat 1738 we have proven that not to be the case, achieving the same performance as esters that contain a higher phosphorous content, which can harm machines and the environment, ” said Jeff McManus, Business Director, North America, Industrial and Consumer Specialties.
“Hostaphat 1738 has benefits throughout the entire life cycle of the metal working fluid. The foam reduction aids increase throughput, its stability extends the working life of a material and when it does come time to treat and discharge, the reduction in phosphorous minimizes the environmental impact, so it really does, cradle to grave, have an effect on performance and sustainability,” concluded Jeff McManus.

Cologne, April 2, 2021 – In the manufacture of transmission oil pans, polyamides offer numerous advantages over sheet steel or die-cast aluminum in terms of lightweight construction, cost-cutting functional integration and design flexibility. Polyamide 66 in particular has therefore found widespread use in series production of these large injection-molded parts in recent years. However, polyamide 6 is also very well suited to the purpose, as is evident from an increasing number of applications. Read More
