Sokalan® Acrylic Polymers from BASF offer a selection of liquid and granular acrylic dispersing agents that is designed for excellent performance for the dish detergent market.
Sokalan® provides excellent dispersing properties and exceptional compatibility with inorganic and organic solids. Sokalan® offers grades for soil anti-redeposition, scale encrustation inhibition, and rinse aids to remove dull spots and streaks.
Detergent polymers such as Sokalan® can also make up for the loss in performance caused by the reduction in phosphate content. They have very pronounced dispersing capacity and are able to counteract the incrustation and the redeposition of soil on dishes while also increasing detergency.
Many dispersing agents cause an increase in chlorine loss in detergent formulations but Sokalan® PA CL grades are chlorine stable and result in less chlorine loss when compared to competitive dispersing agents.
