A BioLoop Surfactant - The next generation of green surfactants

BioLoop 68L

Introducing a new range of bio-based 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.

Key Features

  • Based on BioLoop technology

  • 100% renewable

  • No skin or eye irritancy

  • No ecotoxicity

  • Biodegradable

  • Medium - High foam

  • Good detergency

  • A green alternative to alcohol ethoxylates

Applications


Good detergency:


• 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.

Foaming Profile

Test method

 

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.

Initial

1 minute

3 minutes

5 minutes

Conclusion

When compared to our full range of surfactants would be classed a MEDIUM foam surfactant.

Detergency Profile

Test method

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.

 

Results: 

No Detergent

20.1% removal

Substrate Wetting

Test method


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.
