ROKAnol IT5 - Isotrideceth-5 - 69011-36-5
About product
  • very good wetting agent and dispersant,
  • resistance to oxidizing and reducing agents as well as hard water,
  • stable in low and high pH formulations,
  • improves dye absorption in the dyeing process,
  • removes oil stains from knitwear and fabrics,
  • the possibility of combining with other non-ionic, as well as anionic and cationic ingredients of the formulation,
  • easily biodegradable.

ROKAnol IT5 - Isotrideceth-5 - 69011-36-5 ensures proper wetting of the cleaned surface and dispersion of dirt particles, which affects the high quality of removing dirt from the fabric / knitted fabric and from hard surfaces. Due to so many advantages, the product is perfect as a component of alkaline and acidic detergents for professional washing and industrial and institutional cleaning. Together with ROKAnol IT8 and IT9, it provides optimal detergency.

ROKAnol IT5 is used in fiber pre-treatment processes. The product can be recommended for removing oil stains (mineral oils) from fabrics and knitted fabrics, resulting from knitting and weaving processes. In addition, Isotrideceth-5 can be used as a component of the bleaching composition for raw knitwear and cotton fabrics. Its presence in the formulation improves the capillarity of the dye, which improves the effectiveness of bleaching in dyeing processes.

The product meets the safety standards for textile products set by the world's leading textile institutes, such as the Oeko-Tex Standard Association, ZDHC Program.

The compatibility of ROKAnol IT5 - Isotrideceth-5 with derivatives of silicone compounds is also used in cosmetics for washing, care and styling hair, e.g. in shampoos, conditioners, serums, gels, hair sprays.

The product is used in preparations for cleaning heavy dirt in the engineering industry and as an emulsifier in metalworking products and hydraulic fluids. In addition, ROKAnol IT5 is a component of air-entraining admixtures for concrete and cement mortars. The product ensures very good wetting of cement grains, and also facilitates the introduction of small air bubbles into the molded mass. Thanks to this, the plasticity of the fresh mix is ​​improved, in which the air bubbles act as bearings, increasing the workability of the mass without changing the W/C ratio.
