Lanspec TD 01 is a surfactant meticulously designed for applications requiring surfactant use under standard conditions, featuring excellent wetting, foaming, and detergency. This product, however, undergoes a remarkable transformation, losing all surfactant properties when exposed to temperatures surpassing 120°C or exceeding 100°C (steam) for more than 2 hours. Ideal for diverse applications where controlled surfactant behavior is crucial.
