ROKAnol O10PF is an ethoxylated oleyl alcohol belonging to the nonionic surfactants group. It comes in the form of a white solid with a waxy consistency. It is characterised by good dispersing, solubilising, and thickening properties.
ROKAnol O10PF fulfils the strict quality requirements set forth in the Pharmacy Code, collected and published in the latest edition of European Pharmacopoeia. This allows the product to be classified as part of the Macrogol Oleyl Ether group.
ROKAnol O10PF has a strong hydrophilic character due to its degree of ethoxylation of oleyl alcohol, which is excellent for stable oil-in-water (O / W) emulsions. Due to very good emulsifying properties, ROKAnol O10PF can be used in the process of preparing emulsions at room temperature. This is important when using high temperature sensitive active ingredients, which are a common ingredient in many systems.
The very good dispersing and stabilising properties of ROKAnol O10PF are very important when creating stable formulations in which the active substance is present in solid form, such as in ointments. Good dispersion of the active substance in the product allows it to distribute evenly on the skin. This ability of ROKAnol O10PF is especially used in the formulation of spray dressings.
