SULFOROKAnol N232P belongs to the group of specialist anionic surfactants and is the sodium salt of ethoxylic sulphate. It is offered as an approximately 32% low viscosity aqueous solution, colourless to light yellow. The product is extremely soluble in water.
The product shows excellent foaming properties, creating high and stable foams, even in hard water. Foams obtained from SULFOROKAnol N232P are characterized by a high degree of hydration (so-called wet foam) and a small diameter of bubbles (fine foam). SULFOROKAnol N232P also has a low tendency to gel in electrolyte solutions, which eliminates problems related to the local increase in viscosity, occurring, for example, in dosing systems.
Due to its unique foam-forming properties, the product is mainly used as an air-entraining agent in the construction industry, mainly in the production of drywall. Thanks to its properties, it is possible to manufacture lightweight, durable materials. Its use provides the introduction of air bubbles into gypsum without affecting the adhesion to the outer coating of the board. In the construction industry, SULFOROKAnol N232P is also used as an air-entraining agent in admixtures for concrete or masonry mortars. By introducing air into the concrete mix, the product plasticizes it and increases the frost resistance of the material.
SULFOROKAnol N232P is also used as a component of synthetic extinguishing media, where it is the basic foam-forming agent. In this application it can be mixed with other surfactants offered by the PCC Group.
Due to its ionic nature, this product works well in formulations with anionic, non-ionic and amphoteric surfactants, as well as other ingredients.
