NA-SUL CA-1089 Our Most Versatile Rust Inhibitor for Rust Preventives, Industrial Lubricants & Metalworking

NA-SUL® CA-1089 With over six decades experience in rust and corrosion inhibition with hundreds of products developed, it takes a lot to call one particular inhibitor “our most versatile”, yet NA-SUL CA-1089 fits that bill. Part of that versatility is the fact that it is extremely effective in both industrial lubricants and rust preventives. Additionally, it is compatible with a wide range of additives and base stocks. It offers formulators:     

Excellent rust inhibition with outstanding demulsibility Excellent non-staining properties Excellent filterability, both dry and wet Excellent thermal and hydrolytic stability Excellent solubility in highly paraffinic base stocks

NA-SUL CA-1089 Performance In Industrial Lubricants NA-SUL CA-1089 was specifically designed for use in the more highly refined, new generation base oils where it imparts outstanding steel corrosion protection, demulsibility and filtration. Since its introduction, it has proven to be an outstanding corrosion inhibitor for:      

High performance hydraulic fluids Paper machine oils Compressor oils Windmill (Turbine) lubricants Industrial gear oils Greases

In addition to previous mentioned attributes, NA-SUL CA-1089 when used in industrial lubricants with carefully selected additives even exhibits friction reducing properties.

Performance In Hydraulic Fluids The test data that follow compare the performance of an HF-0 type package for hydraulic fluids with and without NA-SUL CA-1089. NA-SUL CA-1089 was incorporated into the package at 4.5% and 2.0% replacing oil. The concentrations of all other additives were held constant. Testing was conducted at a package treat level of 0.8% in an ISO VG 46 Group II oil. HF-0 Type Package Tests

As shown, inclusion of the NA-SUL CA-1089 in the formulation imparted excellent steel corrosion protection, demulsibility and AFNOR filtration properties while the package without the NA-SUL CA-1089 failed those tests. The improved AFNOR filtration performance is attributed to the excellent dispersancy characteristics of the CA-1089.
