ROKAnol® LP3034 is a non-ionic surfactant of the type of alkoxylated fatty alcohols. ROKAnol® LP3034 is a liquid with a low freezing point, i.e. below -20°C. The active substance content in the product is over 99%.
The product is dispersible in water and has a cloud point in the temperature range 30÷34°C (for 16.7% solution in butyl diglycol). The low cloud point allows the full application of the product at temperatures slightly above room temperature.
It belongs to the ROKAnol® LP series forming a large group of low-foaming products, dedicated to the processes requiring the use of non-ionic surfactants with particularly reduced foaming properties while maintaining their application parameters. Such surfactants are mainly used in detergents for domestic use, institutional and industrial cleaning as well as in other industrial processes.
The product is one of the most effective low-foaming wetting agents. It has very good wetting properties, both on fabrics and on hard surfaces. For this reason, it is used in institutional detergents and auxiliaries in the textile industry, as well as in dishwasher detergents. In case of this last application, ROKAnol® LP3034 thanks to the effective lowering of the contact angle on hard surfaces causes faster drying of the dishes, thus preventing the formation of stains. These properties are also used in plant protection products and adjuvants, where lowering the contact angle has a decisive impact on increasing the effectiveness of the active substance of the pesticide.
The product exhibits the lowest foaming properties among the products of the ROKAnol® LP series. In combination with excellent wetting and degreasing properties, ROKAnol® LP3034 is a universal low foaming surfactant, also used in industrial processes, including for cleaning and degreasing metals.
ROKAnol® LP3034 is a completely biodegradable product and complies with the detergents directive.
