New additive ideal for hard surface cleaning formulations
Air Products has this week introduced the new TomakleenG-12 additive to its product portfolio for Industrial and Institutional cleaning. Tomakleen G-12 additive delivers improved cleaning performance and can reduce or eliminate the need for oxygenated solvents historically used in institutional and industrial cleaning products.
Tomakleen G-12 additive is a detergency booster that is used with a surfactant to improve cleaning performance. Its structure enables it to provide fast monomer migration and better surface exchange to deliver a cleaning 'boost' to products such as hard surface cleaners, heavy duty degreasers and vehicle care products. Its solvency, along with its cleaning performance, can effectively reduce or eliminate the need for oxygenated solvents.
"Increasing environmental regulations and the need to improve worker safety can present a real challenge to formulators," says Frank Womack, global business manager, Functional Additives, for Air Products. "Tomakleen G-12 additive was designed to meet that challenge by delivering improved and faster cleaning while facilitating reduced VOC formulations."
