BioLoop 84 L, a bio-based surfactant, stands out for its 100% renewable components. It presents exceptional surfactant properties, setting it apart from many other bio-based options. This product serves as an environmentally friendly substitute for conventional synthetic nonionics like alcohol ethoxylates. Derived from soybean oil, it offers a sustainable alternative, differentiating it from sources like palm oil. Its appearance as a light amber liquid makes it suitable for various applications requiring effective surfactant properties with an eco-friendly edge.

Product Highlights
  • Excellent detergency: Can be used in hard surface cleaners and general cleaners. In formulations that contain alcohol ethoxylates then use BioLoop 84L as a green alternative. Also the SDS classifications will help ensure negative impact on the hazard classification of the end product.
  • Excellent wetting on glass: Can be used in a new generation of bio-based glass cleaners.

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 and then after 1, 3 and 5 minutes.

BioLoop 84 L - Foaming Profile - 1

Detergency Profile

Test method: A formulated soil is applied to a painted disk and then aged in an oven. The disk is then soaked in a detergent solution for 10 minutes and then rotated for a further 5 minutes. The % soil removal is then measured.

BioLoop 84L 81.5
Substrate Wetting

Test method: A 0.5% solution is prepared and is dropped onto various substrates. The contact angle is then measured using a goniometer. The angle is measured initially and then after 5 seconds. The lower the angle the better the product wets the substrate.
