ROKAnol LP700 belongs to the group of non-ionic surfactants of the type of alkoxylated fatty alcohols. The product is in the form of a clear or slightly turbid liquid with a low freezing point (below -10°C) and a light colour (up to 100 Hazen-scale).
ROKAnol LP700 has a cloud point in water in the temperature range 20-24°C, while in butyl diglycol solutions it is 54-57.5°C (for a 10% solution). The low cloud point in aqueous solutions allows the full advantages of the application to be made use of at temperatures close to or slightly above room temperature.
The product is one of the most effective wetting agents dedicated to institutional laundry. The product combines two basic advantages: excellent wettability on different types of fabrics and high ability to remove stains from fabrics. These features are combined with the low foaming of the product.
The low foaming properties of ROKAnol LP700 are significantly reduced when the temperature exceeds the cloud point in water, which positively affects the performance of the product during the washing process. For this reason, the product is ideally suited mainly as a component of the institutional washing formulation. In addition, ROKAnol LP700 can be mixed with other non-ionic surfactants and does not increase the viscosity of the formulation at higher concentrations, so it can be used in concentrated laundry products.
Excellent wetting properties of the product combined with a low cloud point are also used in professional rinsing agents for dishwashing machines. By lowering the contact angle on hard surfaces, ROKAnol LP700 accelerates the drying time of the dishes, thus preventing the formation of stains. These features 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.
