What if manufacturing jet engines were less complicated?

Mar 04, 2020

Federal regulations to increase the fuel efficiency of jet and rocket engines continue to become more demanding. Protomatic, Inc., a manufacturer of space vehicle components for Blue Origin, is all too familiar with the challenges of continuous innovation while meeting these demands. The high-performance, super alloy metals required to manufacture today’s rocket engines mean that Protomatic needs a state-of-the-art, multifunctional machining coolant.

Ingevity’s Diacid 1550™ is a bio-based emulsifier with a growing reputation among metalworking fluid (MWF) formulators worldwide. Because of its ability to create a more stable metalworking fluid and provide corrosion inhibition, Diacid 1550 is a trusted addition to formulations used to machine super alloy metals. This means that customers, like Protomatic, can expect precision even in the high-heat and high-pressure environments of jet and rocket engine manufacturing.

This application of Diacid 1550 is just one example of The Ingevity Effect – how we’re improving the world through innovations that purify, protect and enhance. Learn more about this incredible customer success story here
