ROKAmina K30K is classified as an amphoteric surfactants from the betaines group. The commercial product is a light yellow aqueous solution containing 29 to 32% of the active substance. ROKAmina K30K is applied as a component of cleaners used for removing dirt from skin and hair. It is a betaine with better thickening properties compared to ROKAmina K30.
It shows very good foaming properties in a wide range of pH values. Combined with anionic surfactants, it shows a positive, synergic increase of foam volume and improves the stability of preparations. It is good in modifying the rheology of preparations that contain anionic surfactants in the presence of electrolytes.
ROKAmina K30K is stable in high-salinity solutions. With these features, it reduces the consumption of surfactants in formulations. In addition, this product is characterized by the ability to soften and smooth skin and hair. It also alleviates skin irritation caused by anionic surfactants. Another benefit is its antistatic effect, which helps reduce the static charge of hair.
The use of Rokamina K30K in personal care products considerably reduces their irritation and sensitisation properties compared to standard substances used in the cosmetics sector. ROKAmina K30K, in addition to cosmetic applications, is also great for other industries, including detergents for home and professional use, as well as industrial and institutional cleaning and washing.
ROKAmina K30K can be applied as an ingredient of All Purpose Cleaners (APCs) mostly household spray cleaners. The product is particularly recommended for glass and shiny surfaces given its reduced tendency to leave streaks. This property is used for surfaces of black or stainless steel equipment, metal or ceramic sinks, chromed fittings, polished stone tables, windows or mirrors.
ROKAmina K30K is also used as a component of mild foaming agents together with amine oxides, where betaine is a coupling agent in environmentally friendly emulsions, produced on the basis of natural fatty acids, intended for spray waxing and drying in automatic car washes.
It is also used in textile industry as a component of a composition for printing on textile fibers, as a factor supporting the process of dispersing sparingly soluble ester salts in dyeing preparations. This product prevents salt precipitation. The use of betaines as a dye admixture or addition to printing inks contributes to a deeper penetration of the material or yarn, quick fixation of dyes and high efficiency of the textile processing process.
The construction industry uses the excellent foaming properties of this product and it is used in concrete admixtures as an air-entraining component and stabilizing the introduced air bubbles. ROKAmina K30K ensures that aerated concrete does not lose air over time, and the resulting pores are fine and evenly distributed.
ROKAmina K30K is also used as an asphalt emulsifier in the production of bituminous masses. The product produces a stable emulsion / dispersion with good surface adhesion.
