Description: Nonionic surfactant/cationic
Applications: Low-foam/defoaming cleaning,
cleaning in place, metal parts washing,
machine floor scrubbing, metalworking fluids
Use levels: 0.1-10% depending on type and
loading level of soil or heaviness of grease to
Comments: Berol CLF blends the low-foam-ing capability of a nonionic surfactant with
a novel cationic hydrotrope in patent-pro-tected formulations that deliver high-performance, solvent-free de-greasing power to
applications requiring low or no foam. Berol
CLF is designed to be used as the sole surfactant, together with chelating agents
and/or builders in aqueous systems. Ideal
for high-shear environments, it is especially
suitable for heavy-duty I&I applications
where low or zero foam is critical. In addition, Berol CLF is biodegradable and can be
used in alkaline, neutral and acidic formulations.

BioSolve Spill Rx
Description: Concentrated 100% plant-based
type II oil spill dispersant.
Applications: May be used neat or diluted
with sea water at various ratios depending
on the thickness of the oil slick.
Use levels: It is recommended that a 1: 5 ratio
be used after skimming activity and 1: 10 for
eliminating very light slick on water.
BioSol Dispersant Cleaner
Description: Concentrated plant-based,
Applications: Spray area with BioSol
Dispersant Cleaner and allow it to stand for
a few minutes to cut into the grease. Rinse
the area with water with pressurized spray.
Use levels: May be diluted on 1:1 ratio with

Dehyquart L- 80
Description: Dicocoylethyl hydroxyethylmoni-um metosulfate and propylene glycol
Applications: Anti-static agent, cheater wax,
dust mop treatment
Use levels: 1-5% active
Comments: Readily biodegradable cationic
that is less toxic to fish and other aquatic
life than other cationic surfactants.
Dehyquart L- 80 is an 80% active material
that uses propylene glycol to reduce viscosity.
Aethoxal TTA or Aethoxal TTN
Description: Acrylic copolymer dispersed in
Applications: Rheological additive that gives
thickening, stabilizing and suspending properties in surfactant systems. Ideal for transparent gel compositions, the product has the
ability to produce very clear formulations
containing high levels of surfactants.
Requires neutralization with alkaline.
Use levels: 0. 5-5.0% as is
Comments: Product can be used to make no
drip cleaners that are dispensed through a
regular trigger spray in an excellent spray
pattern. The no drip allows for increased
dwell time for improved cleaning. When
used in a glass cleaner the product does not
