Lansurf APG8

Product Category: Bio-based

Alkyl Polyglucoside

Quick Links

Lansurf APG8 is a C8-16 alkyl polyglucosides bio-renewable surfactant that provides a combination of wetting and detergency charactistics combined with a high solubility in formulations containing high levels of electrolyte and alkalinity. The material also acts as a hydrotrope, solubilising other surfactant into these formulations.

Key Features

  • Nonionic surfactants with excellent detergency and penetration

  • High foaming characteristics particularly in high electrolyte solution

  • Mild and readily biodegradable

  • High tolerance/solubility in high alkalinity solutions

Applications

Lansurf APG8 is used in the formulations of cleaning products, particulary formulations containing high levels of caustic and other electrolytes. Typical applications of Lansurf APG8 include:

 

•    Metal cleaning
•    Industrial and institutional cleaners
•    Glass cleaners
•    Floor cleaners
•    Kitchen, bathroom & multisurface cleaners
•    Vehicle & traffic film cleaners
•    Agrochemical adjuvants
•    Oilfield chemicals
