IPAC Launches New Corrosion Inhibitor IPAC 2629
By Jeff C., on December 15, 2016
IPAC is pleased to annouce the launch of a new corrosion inhibitor, IPAC 2629. Whether dealing with corrosion in an engine oil, a gear fluid, an automatic transmission fluid or a wide range of other lubrication applications, IPAC 2629 will provide outstanding protection. IPAC 2629 is a yellow metal deactivator (YMD) and prevents metal catalyzed oxidation reactions in fuels, greases and lubricants. Although copper resists many corrosive environments, it does tarnish and may corrode under many circumstances. Recently IPAC discovered a modification to the chemistry that provides higher performance at lower treat rates, offering the opportunity to reduce costs without sacrifice in performance. The data show that tarnish or corrosion control for copper, brass and bronze can be reduced by using IPAC 2629.
IPAC 2629 has been formulated so you can use it at the same treat rate as your existing YMD to minimize changes to your formulation; however, a cost comparison will demonstrate significant savings for most lubricant formulators. IPAC 2629 forms a strongly bonded and a chemisorbed barrier film that protects copper and its alloys in various environments such as lubricants, and various fluids. In addition, IPAC 2629 can scavenge active sulfur that also causes corrosion of yellow metal. Contact your IPAC sales agent today to learn more about IPAC 2629.
