Properties :

1. Hydrotrope / solubiliser for surfactants.
2. Stable in acidic and alkaline conditions.
3. Effective with low foam surfactants.
4. Soluble in high pH formulations.


Typical Performance Properties :

Surface Tension : dynes/cm at 1% actives @ 25˚C
Neutral : 45 (Actual pH=7.00 in distill water)
Alkaline : 41 (Actual pH=12.50 in 2% sodium hydroxide solution)

Rose : Miles foam height mm at 1% actives @ 25˚C, initial and 5 minutes
Neutral : 50/5 (Actual pH=7.00 in distill water)
Alkaline : 105/25 (Actual pH=12.50 in 2% sodium hydroxide solution)


Applications and Benefits:

1. High performance hydrotrope to solubilise low foam non –ionic surfactant in high     pH formulations.
2. Unique low foaming profile, with the ability to Solubilise low foam detergent     without damaging the low foaming profile of the final formulation.
3. Effective hydrotrope for alkaline systems containing high levels of builder.
