General Properties of Phosphate Esters
  • Alkali Stability and Solubility
  • Coupling and Emulsification
  • Detergency and Rinse-ability
  • Increased Hard Water Tolerance
  • Corrosion Inhibition
  • Lubricity
  • Wetting
  • Thermal Stability
Background on Phosphate Esters
  • Phosphate Esters are anionic surface active agents produced by reacting polyphosphoric acid or phosphorous pentoxide with molecules containing hydroxyl groups - commonly ethoxylated moieties or alcohols. Reactions using phosphorous pentoxide result in a mix of mono and di-esters, while products made with polyphosphoric acid are high in mono-ester yield.
  • Which type to use depends upon the properties needed in formulation. Mixed esters products are generally better for emulsification; whereas, mono- ester rich exhibit better hydrotroping properties.
