Function
   Surface Active Agents       
   Your choices are...         
   Demulsifier       Demulsifiers render oil droplets dispersed in water or water-based fluid insoluble, so that the oil or lubricant can be separated from the metal-working fluid. 
   Dispersing Agent / Deflocculant       Dispersing agents and deflocculants are used to suspend or disperse fine particles in a liquid or solution. Deflocculants break up agglomerated particles or flocs so that they can be more easily suspended or dispersed. Deflocculants are useful in forming colloids or suspensions. Usually, these additives create a charged layer on the surface of the particles, causing the particles to repel each other. 
   Emulsifier       Emulsifiers have the ability to disperse oil droplets in water or a water-based fluid. They are also available for dispersing water droplets in oil or an oil-based fluid. 
   Metal Removal / Precipitation (Water Softener)       Additives are designed or suitable for the removal of metal ions, usually through a precipitation mechanism. 
   Settling Agent / Flocculant       Settling agents, coagulant, and flocculants  remove fine particles that are dispersed or suspended in a liquid or solution. The settling agent or flocculant causes fine particle to clump or coagulate together into larger agglomerates or flocs. The agglomerated particulates drop out of the suspension and fall to the bottom. 
   Solubilizer / Hydrotrope       Solubilizer or solvency additives are chemical agents used to increase or maintain the solubility of another chemical, active ingredient, or additive in a product formulation. Hydrotropes are a specific type of solubilizing agent designed to keep a surfactant soluble. 
   Wetting Agent       Surfactant or wetting agents are used for flattening, sheeting, or spreading.
