ROKAnol IT6R Universal surfactant IBC 950 kg
About product

ROKAnol IT6R belongs to non-ionic surfactants from the group of ethoxylated fatty alcohols (INCI name: Isotrideceth-6). The product belongs to the ROKAnol IT series, forming a large group of surface-active products based on isotridecyl alcohol (iso-C13).

The commercial form of ROKAnol IT6R contains about 100% of the active substance. The product takes the form of a clear or turbid liquid with a tendency to stratification, solidifying at a temperature close to 3oC . At 50°C it becomes clear and shows a light color, i.e. max. 100 on the Hazen scale. The product is characterized by better hydrophilicity compared to ROKAnol IT3 and IT5. It has a cloud point within the temperature range of 71÷74 o C (in butyldiglycol/water solution). Due to its limited solubility in water, it forms turbid solutions in it.

ROKAnol IT6R is characterized by excellent wetting properties. Next to ROKAnol IT7, it is the best wetting agent in the entire ROKAnol IT series. This means that it effectively removes air trapped in the fabric and causes the fabric to be completely immersed in the solution. Thanks to this mechanism, high efficiency of the cotton bleaching process is achieved. In addition, the product improves the absorbency of the dye (capillarity) to the structure of the textile material during further processing of textile products. In addition, it has the ability to emulsify mineral oil, which is why it is used in products for removing stains from machine oil during the pre-treatment of fabrics / knitted fabrics.

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

Wetting, emulsifying and detergency properties, combined with low foaming properties of the product, are used in the process of washing and institutional cleaning. In professional washing liquids, Rokanol IT6R is most often combined with other non-ionic surfactants, BDG and alkalis. Such compositions may also contain anionic surfactants, eg ABSNa.

ROKAnol IT6R is a very good emulsifier of silicone oil with which it forms microemulsions. Such compositions are used as softening agents necessary in textile processes.

The product is active in cold water, acidic and neutral baths, as well as diluted alkalis. It can be successfully used in the environment of oxidizing and reducing agents and in the presence of hard water.

ROKAnol IT6R is completely biodegradable and meets the criteria of the detergents directive.
