Kemsurf OPA

Product Category: Anionics

Oleic Acid Sulphonate - Potassium Salt

Quick Links

Kemsurf OPA is an anionic surfactant produced by the sulphonation of oleic acid across the double bonds. This unique molecule exhibits extremely fast foam break within 30 seconds in high agitation systems. The foam breaks so quickly that foaming is virtually eliminated.

Applications:

  • I + I cleaning involving mechanical agitation

  • Machine dishwashing

  • Textile scouring

  • Emulsion polymerisation

Foaming profile - a scale based on highest foam surfactant is 100

Based on our standard assessment no foam is observed at 5 mins but in fact, all foam is lost with 30 seconds
