When it comes to dishwashers, the main demand made of the anti-foaming and wetting surfactants used is optimal foam suppression during the cleaning process and streak-free, clear
rinsing that makes the articles shine spotlessly. Other required properties are their simple incorporation into formulations as well as a favorable environmental profile characterized by
easy biodegradability and low aquatic toxicity.
Plurafac LF 303 and Plurafac LF 305 are particularly good at meeting all of these requirements.
Plurafac LF 303
Plurafac LF 303 stands out especially for its excellent foam-inhibiting action over a wide temperature range and, in view of its superior environmental properties, offers an ideal alternative
to the anti-foaming surfactants currently available on the market.
Plurafac LF 305
With one single surfactant structure, Plurafac LF 305 combines all of the essential basic features of low-foam surfactants, such as very good foam-inhibiting action over a wide
temperature range, outstanding wetting capability, good formulating characteristics and a high degree of environmental compatibility.
These two new surfactants open up the entire application spectrum of low-foam surfactants and set new standards in terms of environmentally sound processing and cleansing
operations in households, in trade and in industry. Examples of other multifaceted application possibilities are in the food and beverage sectors and in industrial spray-cleaning
