ROKAnol LP200 belongs to the group of non-ionic surfactants of the type of alkoxylated fatty alcohols. The product has the form of a clear or slightly turbid liquid with a low freezing point (about -15°C) and light colour (up to 100 Hazen-scale). The product forms turbid solutions in water, while it is clear in butyl diglycol solutions up to a temperature of about 40°C and concentration of 16.7% of the active substance.
Due to its unique structure, the product exhibits very good wetting properties in combination with low-foaming properties. For this reason, the product is used primarily as a component of formulations used in textile processing, especially in wet processes. ROKAnol LP200 is compatible with the other ingredients of auxiliary formulations, including chelating agents, solvents and alkalis, which facilitates its manipulation by the formulator.
The product forms clear water-solvent solutions. Due to the high wetting ability, ROKAnol LP200 ensures the removal of excess air from the fabric and increases the efficiency of bleaching agents used in the textile industry. At the same time, due to its low foaming properties, it prevents excessive foaming of bleaching baths. In addition, ROKAnol LP200 helps to achieve higher hydrophilicity of the fabric, which translates into better colouring effects. The product is also used as a foam regulator of other surfactants.
ROKAnol LP200 is used as a low-foaming surfactant in industrial washing and cleaning as well as household detergents, e.g. in dishwashing preparations.
