About product

ROKAnol® GA7 is a non-ionic surfactant belonging to the group of ethoxylated fatty alcohols. The product co-creates a group of surfactants based on C10 Guerbet alcohol. It has the form of a cloudy liquid with an active substance content of about 100%. At 40°C it takes on a light color, i.e. max. 50 on the Hazen scale, while it solidifies at a temperature below 20°C. ROKAnol® GA7 creates turbid solutions in water, while it is soluble in organic solvents such as methanol or acetone. The cloud point of this product is 67-70°C in BDG solution (16.7%). ROKAnol® GA7 shows moderate resistance to both acids and alkalis. It can be part of mixtures with other non-ionic, as well as anionic and cationic surfactants.

ROKAnol® GA7 is characterized by low foaming capacity as for an ethoxylated product, which means that it can be included in preparations where the presence of abundant foam is an unfavorable factor. Moreover, ROKAnol® GA7 has excellent degreasing, wetting properties (the lower the degree of ethoxylation of ROKAnol® GA series, the better wetting properties) and detergent properties. For this reason, it can be successfully used as a component of cleaning and degreasing formulations. It is the very high degreasing capacity of this product that makes the product used in the processes of the tanning industry, in particular for degreasing leather in the wet process.

The product is also used, among others, in liquid and powder laundry detergents, where its high detergency is used. In detergency tests, both on a hard surface and on a normalized EMPA 125 fabric, at a concentration of 5 g/L, it shows the best efficiency among the ROKAnol® GA series. ROKAnol® GA7 can be used both in professional cleaning agents and in specialized, acidic preparations, as well as in metal cleaners.

ROKAnol® GA7 is perfect as an emulsifier. Its usefulness for individual systems depends on the hydrophilic-lipophilic balance (HLB), which directly correlates with the degree of ethoxylation. In addition, like all ROKAnol® GA series, the product has dispersing properties.

ROKAnol® GA7 is a product that is biodegradable in the natural environment and meets the criteria of the Detergents Directive.
