ROKAmer 2400 belongs to the group of non-ionic block copolymers of ethylene oxide and propylene oxide (ROKAmers). ROKAmer 2400 is among products with low-foaming and anti-foaming properties. It is dedicated to professional detergents for institutional and industrial cleaning as well as for some industrial processes.
The product is a light yellow liquid. The solidification point of the product is about 4°C and the active substance content is about 100%. Diluted aqueous solutions of the product become turbid in the temperature range 32-38°C.
The product is a high molecular polymer with a specific, bifunctional structure, which means it has two hydrophilic groups. This feature distinguishes the ROKAmers group from other nonionic surfactants and determines their properties.
ROKAmer 2400 is a product with moderate hydrophobicity and good degreasing and wetting properties of hard surfaces. This makes it used, among others, as a component of professional dishwashing chemicals, industrial bottle washing and preparations for degreasing metals.
ROKAmer 2400 is used in Clean in Place systems, e.g., as a component of cleaning formulations in breweries. Thanks to the anti-foaming properties already achieved at low temperature, it causes a lowering of the foaming of washing baths, also in the presence of proteins or starch. ROKAmer 2400 is a product resistant to hard water, dedicated to neutral or slightly alkaline formulations. Its anti-foaming properties are used in the paper and food industry as well as in all production processes where the problem of foaming of technological waters or wastewater occurs. Thanks to its properties, the product reduces the surface tension between the liquid and the air, and at the same time improves the "drainage" of the foam, which results in its reduction. ROKAmer 2400 is also used in the agrochemical industry, mainly in EC, SC, and SE formulations.
ROKAmer 2400 does not contain silicone and is not classified as a dangerous substance. The product is susceptible to aerobic biodegradation and has a Kosher certificate. It complies with the regulations permitting the product for indirect contact with food. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allows the use of this product and its derivatives as an antifoaming agent under the conditions described in the following FDA sections:
