Component of detergents CAS 37251-69-7 ROKAfenol N8LA
About product
  • non-ionic surfactant belonging to ethoxylated, propoxylated nonylphenols,
  • a wide spectrum of functions in industrial formulations - a universal product,
  • substitute for ethoxylated nonylphenols,
  • very good solubility in water,
  • active in hard and cold water,
  • active in the environment, neutral, acidic and alkaline.

A component of cleaning agents CAS 37251-69-7 ROKAfenol N8LA belongs to the group of ethoxylated and propoxylated nonylphenols. It is a non-ionic surfactant in the form of a clear or opalescent liquid (70 on the Hazen scale). The product dissolves well in water and becomes cloudy when heated. It is active in cold and hard water. It works well in acidic, alkaline and neutral environments.

ROKAfenol N8LA can be used as a replacement for ethoxylated nonylphenols in the tanning and textile industries, as well as in the washing and industrial cleaning industry. It works very well as a component of detergents and preparations used in textile processes.

ROKAfenol N8 has very good washing, cleaning, washing and wetting properties. It is an effective product in high concentrations of electrolytes as well as in the presence of oxidizing and reducing agents. The surfactant also prevents the precipitation of calcium soaps. Thanks to this, there are no uneven colors and stains on fabrics and fibres.

ROKAfenol N8LA is also a very good emulsifier of fats, oils, waxes, organic solvents and synthetic polyester resins. This feature significantly improves the efficiency of detergent processes. ROKAfenol N8LA forms moderately stable emulsions with chlorinated organic solvents, vegetable and mineral oils.

ROKAfenol N8LA, like ROKAfenol, is characterized by a wide range of applications in the textile industry. The product is perfect as a detergent, wetting agent, dispersant, penetrant and dye additive. The product is also an additive to degreasing, bleaching and washing baths, which are intended to prepare fibers for dyeing processes. It improves the strength of the fibers and ensures very high efficiency and quality of dyeing.

In the metallurgical industry, ROKAfenol N8LA is used for degreasing and etching metal surfaces and parts in mixtures with mineral acids and corrosion inhibitors. The product is also an additive to lubricants. It also improves the washability of oil coolants. In addition, it increases the corrosion resistance of metals and prevents the occurrence of stains on zinc coatings.

A component of washing agents CAS 37251-69-7 ROKAfenol N8LA is a surfactant also used in the tanning industry, where it works as a wetting agent, softening and degreasing agent. In the dry tanning process, it can act as a dye dispersant. It is also used in leather dyeing processes. Accelerates the penetration of tanning agents, and at the same time cleans and degreases leather.

The product is also a component of washing, cleaning and degreasing preparations used in the industrial washing and cleaning industry. In formulations with alkyl sulfates and alkyl aryl sulfonates, it works synergistically. It is therefore an excellent raw material for the production of industrial detergents.

ROKAfenol N8LA is also a stabilizer of rubber emulsions, synthetic latexes, natural and synthetic waxes, polishing agents and finishes obtained on their basis. It is also highly effective as a dispersing agent in paint emulsions based on rubber latex.

In paper production, it is used to moisten, emulsify and remove stains from paper pulp and cellulose. Its detergent properties are also extremely desirable in formulations intended for cleaning installations in the pharmaceutical industry.
