Chemical name: orange terpenes

Applications: all-purpose cleaners, industrial degreasers, hand cleaners

Use levels: 5-100%

Attributes: d-limonene is a 100% all-natural biodegradable solvent and degreaser, recovered as a by-product of the orange juicing process. Due to its attractive citrus odor, versatility and GRAS (generally recognized as safe) rating from the U.S. FDA, d-limonene can be used safely and effectively in a wide range of products.

Orange Oil

Chemical name: cold-pressed orange oil

Applications: cleaners, degreasers, air fresheners

Use levels: 5-100%

Hampshire LED3A Surfactants

Chemical name: Lauroyl ethylenediamine-triacetic acid

Applications: Hampshire LED3A anionic surfactants contain the only molecule currently on the market that combines the surface activity of a surfactant with the binding action of a chelating agent--all in one extremely mild surfactant. The one-of-a-kind surfactancy/chelating combination makes Hampshire LED3A surfactants suitable for industrial and institutional cleaners, such as hard-surface and high alkaline cleaners, and a number of other industrial applications. In addition, the new Hampshire LED3A anionic surfactants are readily biodegradable, so they may be suitable for global markets with stringent environmental regulations.

Use Levels: 3-5%

Product Attributes: In addition to being readily biodegradable, Hampshire LED3A surfactants have an extremely low toxicity profile. Further, since Hampshire LED3A surfactants provide their own chelating action, they eliminate the need for formulators to add additional chelating agents to their formulations. This can reduce formulation costs. In addition, because Hampshire LED3A salts combine strong chelating power with surface activity, the new surfactants adsorb tenaciously on the surface of metals to produce strongly adherent hydrophobic surface films. Hydrophobic films, as evidenced by beading of water, have been observed on metals and glass that have been treated with solutions of Hampshire LED3A surfactants. Because they can adsorb on metal surfaces, Hampshire LED3A surfactants can also inhibit metal corrosion.

Attributes: Phosphoteric T-C6 provides unique detergency enhancement and hydrotroping properties in high alkaline built systems. It improves the rinsibility of these systems by providing less streaking and redeposition of soil on the cleaned surface.


Chemical name: N-soya-N-ethyl morpholinium ethosulfate

Applications: space deodorizers (aerosols, solids), surface deodorizers (garbage containers, kitchen surfaces), laundry products (rinses, conditioners)

Use levels: Varies based on application.

Attributes: Forestall is one of a unique class of cationic surfactants that are effective deodorizers for a wide range of malodors. It functions by complexing or neutralizing specific organic molecules and reducing their concentration on the vapor phase. Forestall is particularly effective against organic acids like those responsible for body odor.

Synperonic, NCE Series

Chemical name: Alcohol ethoxylate surfactants

Applications: Applications for the new line of products include a wide range of cleaners. They are as patented, high performance detergents and emulsifiers for hard surface cleaning that meet ready biodegradation standards and are APE free.

Use levels: Varies based on application.

Attributes: Synperonic, NCE products conform to primary biodegradability requirements of EEC Directive 82/242 and are not classified as "Dangerous for the Environment." As such, they can be used in formulations that will carry the ECO label in Europe. Tests have shown that the Synperonic NCE series offers excellent detergency, as well as a range of other surfactant properties, including wetting and foaming. These products have lower viscosities than conventional linear alcohol ethoxylates. This property will allow easier formulation in aqueous systems.
