ColaSolv IES is an ionic liquid that offers unique solvent capabilities and useful as a replacement for some polar solvents. Cola®Solv IES is compatible with anionic surfactants and can aid in foam stabilization. ColaSolv IES is a 100% active liquid quaternary compound in addition to its solvent capability, it offers excellent antistatic, lubricating, fiber softening and corrosion inhibiting properties in aqueous and non-aqueous systems.
Ionic liquids are compounds that are liquids at low temperatures and function as solvents, yet they have no VOC content and are environmentally safe. In addition, these ionic liquids are categorized as salts that remain as liquids below 100°C. This class of compounds is fast gaining recognition as regulatory and environmental concerns close the door on traditional organic surfactants. Ionic Liquids represent a new technology with the potential for use as solvent replacements. Their low vapor pressure makes them potential substitutes for highly volatile organic solvents, thus reducing the amount of pollution caused through solvent evaporation. Their non-flammable nature reduces the risk of fire hazard.
Colonial Chemical products are key building-block ingredients used in a variety of household, industrial and institutional cleaners and specialized products.
Applications for ColaSolv IES
- Textile Applications
- The unusual lubricating, antistatic, fiber softening and corrosion inhibiting properties suggest the use of ColaSolv IES in synthetic coolants and lubricants, plastics, textile softeners, and fiber lubricants. Inclusion of either product as surface treatments can aid significantly in static charge reduction.
- Industrial Applications
- This product can be used in cleaners to reduce the static charge on glass and metallic surfaces. Formulations with ColaSolv IES allow water to be more freely rinsed from surfaces. The more uniform surfaces created by this product rinse quicker and help prevent re-soiling or re-deposition.
