ROKAnol® GT5 belongs to the group of ethoxylated fatty alcohol surfactants. The product belongs to the group of surfactants based on C9-C16 alcohol. Due to its special properties, it is a perfect substitute for a C13 alcohol ethoxylate product.
ROKAnol® GT5 is a liquid with a tendency to stratification. At a temperature of 40°C, the product takes on a light color of 100 max on Hazen scale. The product forms slightly cloudy solutions in water, but it is highly soluble in organic solvents, such as methanol and acetone. The commercial product contains approximately 99% of the active substance. Its cloud point is determined for 16.7% ROKAnol® GT5 solution in 25% BDG solution and it is within the range of 60-62°C. The product is compatible with non-ionic, anionic and cationic surfactants.
ROKAnol GT5 has very good wetting properties, which is of key importance in many applications, i.e. cleaning hard surfaces, as well as in textile industry. In addition, ROKAnol GT5 creates very low foams in water solutions, which allows it to be used in formulations without the need to use additional anti-foaming agents. In dynamic tests imitating the effect of a degreasing bath, ROKAnol GT5 shows very good results, therefore it is recommended as a component of industrial cleaning agents or degreasing preparations. The properties of the product are used in textile auxiliary agents, degreasing agents in detergents and in agents for degreasing metal surfaces.
