Chemical family

Short alkyl chain ether carboxylic acid


  • Industrial Fluids & Lubricants (Specialty Cleaning)


AKYPO LF types in general already improves the rinsing of the emulsion from the metal surface. As part of a (metal) cleaner it will also support the soil dispersing. AKYPO LF types are usually combined with EO-PO based non-ionics. The hydrotropic properties of AKYPO LF 1 will help to make a stable formulation in acid , alkaline and/or high electrolyte circumstances. AKYPO LF 1 has a short alkyl chain (C8) and moderate degree of ethoxylation; very good acid stability, good alkaline and electrolyte stability
