The AKYPO® range of ether carboxylates were introduced over 45 years ago to meet the growing demand for longer life water miscible metalworking fluids. Derived from vegetable feed stocks, the AKYPO®, FOSFODET®, AMIDET®, and FINDET® range of anionic and nonionic surfactants provide multi-functional advantages such as corrosion inhibition, hard water stability, low foam performance, emulsification and dispersancy.
