BioLoop 56 L appears as a light amber liquid and stands out as a bio-based surfactant boasting 100% renewable components. It's distinct for its excellent surfactant properties, making it a green alternative to conventional synthetic nonionics like alcohol ethoxylates. Notably, it offers low foam characteristics, making it ideal for applications requiring foam control, such as machine dishwasher operations, textile processing, and high-pressure spray cleaners.

Functions: Surfactant, Surfactant (Nonionic)

Labeling Claims: Bio-based, Biodegradable, From Renewable Resources, Green Alternative, Non-Irritant, Non-Toxic, Sustainable

The normal grade of BioLoop surfactants are aimed at standard industrial-based processes in which clarity in an aqueous medium isn’t a necessity. The PG versions which denotes our purified grades are for industries in which clarity in aqueous mediums is essential.

Normal Grades:

  • Oils and Lubricants
  • Emulsion Polymers
  • Agrochemical Additives
  • Textiles Auxiliaries
  • Hand and Floor Wipes

PG Versions:

  • Personal Care
  • Cosmetics
  • Household Products

Technical Details & Test Data

Foaming Profile

Test Method:

A 0.1% solution is prepared and aerated for 30 seconds and then stopped. The degree of foaming is assessed initially, then next after 10 seconds and then again after 60 seconds.

BioLoop 56 L - Foaming Profile - 1

Detergency Profile

Test method:

A test formulation was prepared and compared against the leading brand of dishwasher all-in-one solid/liquid pods. The BioLoop 56L replaced a conventional synthetic liquid detergent component such as Trideceth-n (Lansurf AE37). No difference in performance was observed when comparing the leading brand. Below depicts the cleaning performance on glass tumblers and both have the same excellent performance.
