Metal Deactivator Additives
Afton’s metal deactivator additives neutralize the catalytic effects of metals, such as copper and iron, to reduce gum and sediment formation in fuels.
Afton Chemical's metal deactivator additives are highly effective at neutralizing the catalytic effects of metals, such as copper and iron. These metals are present in fuel-distribution equipment, including pumps, pipeline valves and storage equipment.
Dissolved metal in a fuel can accelerate rates of oxidation, resulting in gum and sediment formation and color degradation. Even part-per-billion levels of copper can catalyze fuel oxidation and cause potential stability risks.
