Inoterra Surfactant Systems

Description: Nonionic alcohol ethoxylate system

Applications: Hard surface cleaning, industrial and on-premise laundry, heavy duty degreasers, vehicle cleaners

Use levels: Similar to the ones used in nonyl phenol-based formulations

Comments: The Inoterra range was designed to meet not only the physical chemical profile of the commonly used Nonyl Phenol Ethoxylates but offers an overall solution for the I&I formulator who needs a product that performs even at low-use concentrations and that doesn't need to be combined with other nonionic surfactants to perform. The product range offers an excellent performance in industrial degreasers and provides a no gelling profile in water based formulations meeting at the same time the EPA's DfE surfactant screen. The line can also be used as an inert in non-food contact type of disinfectants and sanitizers.

Trilon M Chelating Agents

Description: Methylglycinediacetic acid (tri-sodium salt)

Applications: Effective in hard surface cleaning, automatic dish wash, food & beverage, vehicle wash and laundry formulations.

Use levels: Because of its low molecular weight, significantly lower amounts of chelating agent are needed when compared to similar environmentally-friendly amino carboxylates.

Comments: Trilon M is a strong chelating agent that offers the same level of calcium and magnesium binding capacity as traditional chelating agents like EDTA and NTA. This powerful chelate biodegrades in less than 10 days, making it an ideal additive for environmentally-friendly formulations.

Mirapol Surf-S

Description: Aqueous solution of an acrylic based polymer

Applications: Mirapol Surf-S 110 & 210 are designed for all purpose cleaners

Use levels: Mirapol Surf-S 110 & 210 recommended dosage = 0.5 to 1% as is

Comments: Rhodia has designed Mirapol Surf-S, a patented breakthrough family of specialty polymer additives for hard surface cleaning formulations. Mirapol SurfS polymers ensure quick, easy and effective cleaning that, unlike standard surfactant-based cleaners, is long-lasting.

Mirapol Surf-S polymers modify the surface into a more water-loving (hydrophilic) surface. Rinsing water flows on this hydrophilic surface as a thin film that dries faster, leaving the surface spot- and streak-free. They effectively bind to the surface and don't wash away with the cleaning solution. Mirapol Surf-S polymers resist rinsing and wiping from the first use and reduce soil adhesion on the surface.

Among the product's attributes are: Cost reduction (replace 2/3 of the specific noniionic surfactants with only 0.2% polymer); easier process; soil-repellency (the soil does not adhere to the surface); antiscale effect (the polymer strongly reduces lime scale deposition); hydrophilization (avoid dried spots and streaks by preventing water beading); long-lasting substantivity; keeps shiny surfaces, spot- and streak-free; fast drying (thinner and uniform water film for accelerated drying).

Rhodoclean EFC

Description: Ethoxyl-propoxyl terpene

Applications: Spray cleaning, industrial cleaners, vehicle cleaning

Use levels: 0.5-5%

Comments: Biodegradable nonionic surfactant (Approx. 100% solids). Specially designed for optimum detergency with minimum foaming, this product has numerous applications on a variety of hard surfaces where outstanding cleaning is required. Additionally, this product is based on renewable raw materials and has an outstanding ecotoxic profile. Main applications are in institutional and industrial facilities. It is especially efficacious where the product is applied using a high pressure spray. Compliant with the EU's detergent biodegradability regulation.

Other attributes include: a plant-based profile, not ecotoxic, low foam, excellent detergency power, HLC=13, cloud point: 32-38[degrees]C, no need for antifoam (reduce the number of raw materials), stable in 10% H2SO4
