ColaCarb TDC-H is a mild anionic surfactant with hard water tolerance. It offers emulsification capability to extend the lifetime of water-miscible metalworking fluids as well as cleansing performance for personal care formulations. It improves the storage stability of amphoteric formulations and useful in combination with all ionic classes of surfactants. Cola®Carb TDC-H has applications in industrial and personal care formulations.
By structure, ether carboxylates are chemically combined nonionic and anionic surfactants. Their structures and performance attributes are customizable by properly selecting hydrophobic alkyl chains and hydrophilic alkoxylate chains. Their unique structures enable their multifunctionality for emulsification, dispersing, surface wetting, corrosion inhibition, and lubrication.
Additionally, ether carboxylates help stabilize emulsions against electrolyte and hard water and thus increase the lifetime of water-dilutable metalworking fluids. In general, they have low to medium foaming tendency and are biodegradable. They have been extensively used in metalworking fluids, i.e., soluble oils, semi-synthetic, rolling emulsions, hydraulic fluids, cleaners, enhanced crude oil recovery, personal care, paint and coatings, and some concrete applications.
