ROKAnol LP2024 belongs to the group of non-ionic surfactants of the type of alkoxylated fatty alcohols. The product is in the form of a clear liquid with a low pour point of about -15°C and a light colour, up to 100 Hazen-scale.
The product has a cloud point in water at 20-24°C, while in butyl diglycol solutions about 45°C (for a 10% solution). The low cloud point in aqueous solutions allows to make full use of the application advantages at temperatures close to or slightly above room temperature.
ROKAnol LP2024 is mainly used as a component of formulations used in the production of fibres, textile processing, especially in wet processes. ROKAnol LP2024 is compatible with the other ingredients of auxiliary formulations, including chelating agents, solvents and alkalis, which facilitates its manipulation by the formulator. Due to the high wetting capacity, the product 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 the low foaming properties, the product prevents excessive foaming of bleaching baths. In addition, the product helps to achieve a higher hydrophilicity of the fabric, which translates into better colouring effects.
The high wetting properties of the product combined with the low cloud point are also used in professional rinsing agents for dishwashing machines. By lowering the contact angle on hard surfaces, the product accelerates drying of the dishes, 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.
