ROKAnol® GA9W is a nonionic surfactant that belongs to the group of ethoxylated fatty alcohols. The product co-creates a group of surfactants based on C10 Guerbet alcohol. The commercial product is in the form of a paste or cloudy liquid. At room temperature, it takes on a bright colour (maximum 50 on the Hazen scale), while it solidifies at a temperature below 10°C.
The commercial product contains more than 84% of the active substance. Its cloud point is determined for 1% ROKAnol® GA9W solution in water and it ranges from 67 to 70°C.
ROKAnol® GA9W exhibits a very high resistance to both acids and alkali. In addition, it is characterised by a limited foaming capacity and good solubility in water and low alcohols (e.g. methanol) as well as in acetone. It works excellently in mixtures with other nonionic and ionic surfactants. Moreover, the product exhibits very good degreasing properties of metal surfaces by both dynamic and static methods. For this reason, it can be successfully used as a component of cleaning formulations, improving the stability of the formulation and increasing its efficiency and effectiveness.
ROKAnol® GA9W can be used in professional and specialist cleaning agents, acidic preparations as well as in metal cleaning agents. The product has the ability to very well clean hard surfaces and fabric EMPA 125. ROKAnol® GA9W is used as an ingredient in detergents, cleaning agents, products used in the textile industry and as an emulsifier in industrial applications. In addition, like all the ROKAnol® GA series, the product exhibits dispersing capabilities.
ROKAnol® GA9W is biodegradable in the natural environment and meets the criteria of the directive on detergents.
