Sonneborn sodium sulfonate products are made from natural petroleum oil feedstocks. The distribution of molecular weights in these products is much broader than that of typical synthetic sodium sulfonates. This enhances the ability of the sulfonates to interact with the oil and provides excellent emulsification compared to synthetic sodium sulfonates of the same molecular weight.
Sonneborn sodium sulfonate products have improved compatibility with the base oil, resulting in excellent emulsion performance and better resistance to rust and corrosion.
Depending on the application, the balance of these two properties is critical for performance in any market. In the industrial oils market, where rust prevention is a larger concern, the corrosion prevention of Petronate H and Petronate HH is commonly specified. In the metalworking industry, a balance of both the emulsion and corrosion performance is critical to a successful formulation, making Petronate HL the preferred choice.
Ideal for metalworking formulations requiring a balance of both emulsion and corrosion performance.
