Sokalan CP 10S Sokalan CP 10S is a modified polyacrylic acid polymer in a free acid form.  It is available as a 50% solids in aqueous solution.  The CP 10S can be used as a dispersing agent for inorganic solids and an antiscalant in HI&I applications.  It is also very effective in reducing water spotting in automatic dish detergent formulations. SDS TDS*
Sokalan CP 12S Sokalan CP 12S is a modified acrylic acid copolymer in the free acid form.  It is available as a 50% solids in aqueous solution.  Sokalan CP 12S is a carboxylate polymer designed to prevent incrustation and deposition in phosphate-reduced and phosphate-free detergents.  It is also an effective dispersant for fine, inorganic particles in cooling water circuits. SDS TDS*
Sokalan CP 13S Sokalan CP 13S is a modified acrylic acid copolymer in the free acid form.  It is available as a 25% solids in aqueous solution.  Sokalan CP 13S can be used as an antiscalant, a dispersing agent for inorganic solids, and is particularly effective in systems containing active chlorine. SDS TDS*
Sokalan CP 5 Sokalan CP 5 is a maleic acid/acrylic acid copolymer sodium salt that is offered in a liquid or granular option.  Sokalan CP 5 is commonly used as an anti-redeposition agent, an encrustation inhibitor, a viscosity modifier, and as a detergent process aid.  It is especially effective at sequestering calcium and magnesium ions. SDS TDS
Sokalan CP10 Sokalan CP10 is a modified polyacrylic acid polymer fully neutralized as a sodium salt.  It is available as a 45% solids aqueous solution. Sokalan CP 10 is commonly used as a dispersing agent in systems containing active chlorine, as an antiscalant, and a sipersing agent for inorganic solids. SDS TDS
Sokalan CP9 Sokalan CP9 is a copolymer of maleic acid and an olefin as the sodium salt.  It is available as a 25% solids aqueous solutions.  Sokalan CP9 can be used as a dispersing agent for inorganic solids, protective colloid in aqueous/organic systems, and as an anti-scalant.  It is commonly used in both automatic dish detergents and laundry detergents. SDS TDS
Sokalan DCS Sokalan DCS is a combination of aliphatic dicarboxylic acids with a mixture of adipic, glutaric, and succinic acid.  Sokalan DCS is mainly employed in acid cleaners as a descalant or added to light duty detergents as a PH adjuster.  It can also be added to automatic dish detergents to act as an effective rinse aid.
