Extreme pressure additives are chemicals with various functions. Their common feature is their exceptional resistance to high pressures.
High-pressure processes occur in systems that work with compressed gases or liquids such as water, refrigerants or oils. Extreme pressure additives provide these fluids with outstanding lubricating properties and resistance to very high pressures. The substances in this group are multi-purpose and may have different properties and structure, but they are generally phosphates. Extreme pressureadditives have emulsifying, cleaning, wetting and low-foaming properties. Some of them also have the ability to inhibit corrosion.
High-pressure processes include those related to metalworking, which is why extreme pressure additives are often found in machining fluids, hydraulic fluids and rolling oils.
