Metal Deactivators Market to Record an Exponential CAGR by 2027

Press Release

Global Metal Deactivators Market: Overview

Metal deactivators are oil and fuel additives used as highly efficient solution to stabilize fluids by disabling the non-ferrous metal-ions. Metal deactivators reduces the negative effects in the lubricants such as corrosion and staining which is occurs mainly due to the oxidation process. To avoid this oxidation and metal contamination, special additives namely antioxidants are being used. However, cost of antioxidant chemicals is very high. Hence, for the reduction of the cost and usage of antioxidants, a very small quantity of metal deactivators are used. Selection of metal deactivators is also an important part, it is based on a number of factors including the metal to be protected, the base stock used, frequency of the application, length of time it needs to be effective and any additional properties needed for the application.
