Lansurf CAPO is a salt-free amine oxide surfactant that is stable over a wide pH range. It is suitable for anionic based formulations as it can provide foam boosting, viscosity building and foam stability properties. Lansurf CAPO can also be used as a wetting agent especially in concentrated electrolyte solutions. Due to its easy thermal degradation, this product is useful as a non-rewetting agent for textiles. This product is also found to be readily biodegradable and would not expect to persist indefinitely in the environment. Lansurf CAPO is used in many applications as an effective secondary surfactant such as Industrial and Institutional Cleaners, Liquid Dishwash, Viscosity Builders, Acid and Alkaline Cleaners.
