A BioLoop Surfactant - The next generation of green surfactants
Introducing a new range of biobased surfactants containing components that are 100% renewable. This product is based on a hydrophilic loop reacted onto a vegetable oil hydrophobe, and being palm oil free has a good sustainability profile. Unlike many bio-based surfactants, this product offers excellent surfactant properties and can be used as a green alternative to the conventional synthetic nonionics, such as alcohol ethoxylate.
PG (Pure Grade) v Normal Grade
The normal grade of BioLoop surfactants are aimed at standard industrial-based processes in which clarity in an aqueous medium isn’t a necessity. The PG versions which denotes our purified grades are for industries in which clarity in aqueous mediums is essential.
Oils and Lubricants
Hand and floor wipes
• Hard Surface cleaners and general cleaners. In formulations that contain alcohol ethoxylates then use BioLoop 68L as a green alternative. Also, the SDS classifications will help ensure no hazard classifications.
Excellent substrate wetting on Nylon 6, Nylon 66 and Polycarbonates:
• Can be used in textile applications that contain Nylon.

A 0.1% solution is prepared and aerated for 30 seconds and then stopped. The degree of foaming is assessed initially and then after 1, 3 and 5 minutes.
When compared to our full range of surfactants would be classed a MEDIUM foam surfactant.
A formulated soil is applied to a painted disc and then aged in an oven. The disc is then soaked in a detergent solution for 10 minutes and then rotated for a further 5 minutes. The % soil removal is then measured.
A 0.5% solution is prepared and is dropped onto various substrates. The contact angle is then measured using a goniometer. The angle is measured initially and then after 5 seconds. The lower the angle the better the product wets the substrate.
