Metal Working

Nease Performance Chemicals continues to expand our Phosphate Ester offering for use in metalworking formulations. Naxonac® Phosphate Esters, manufactured by either poly phosphoric acid (PPA) or phosphoric anhydride (P205), provide lubricity, emulsification, and corrosion inhibition in many metal working formulations, as well as aide in the cleaning of various metal components. We continue to broaden this line of chemistries and work with many of our customers to optimize the functionality of our Naxonac® phosphate esters in their formulations. As North Americas leading producer of hydrotrope and one of only a few manufactures of Alkyl Naphthalene sulfonates worldwide, Nease is well positioned in North America to supply these chemistries as well. Our Naxan® product line of Naphthalene Sulfonates are a versatile surfactant and hydrotrope used in an assortment of applications including metal cleaners, rust removers and hard surface cleaners. Our Naxonate® line of cost-effective hydrotropes have many industrial applications, including viscosity reduction, increase solubility, improve clarity and as an aid in coupling and dispersing.

Nease is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, and is part of the growing International Chemical Investors Group (ICIG) out of Frankfurt, Germany, and the WeylChem Group of Companies. For more information, visit their websites at or
