AltaVeg 1550 is a dicarboxylic acid derived from vegetable fatty acids through an Ingevity-developed process, having applications in three areas: metalworking fluids, chemical intermediates, and surfactants. As an effective four-in-one product used in metalworking fluids, AltaVeg 1550 can function as a co-emulsifier, corrosion inhibitor, lubricity additive, and wetting agent. This unique, bio-derived product enables streamlining of formulations with the four benefits of one additive.
