ColaTeric JEM, derived from mixed caprylic and ethylhexoic acids, is a surfactant with low foaming characteristics that is stable in alkaline medium. Cola®Teric JEM can be sprayed onto dry caustic soda, which will not discolor even after prolonged storage. This surfactant is recommended for use in bottle washing compounds, wax stripping formulations, for alkaline degreasing (containing 12 to 18% caustic soda), electrolytic degreasing, and fruit and vegetable lye peeling.
Wetting and penetrating properties of this surfactant were tested by the DravesClarkson Test in 20% caustic solution at 20°C. A sinking time of 41 seconds was obtained with only 0.175% ColaTeric JEM. Wetting times were shorter at higher temperatures.
