Unlike some conventional surfactants used in 50% Caustic Soda solutions, ColaTrope AHS is readily soluble and requires no prolonged mixing or heating. It is also stable in mineral acids.
Suggested uses are in the area of industrial and household products where high performance and low foam are required. Metal cleaning, bottle washing concentrates, heavy-duty steam cleaning, wax striping, etc., are only a few of the areas where Cola®Trope AHS deserves evaluation.
Prolonged boiling of 0.3% ColaTrope AHS in a 10% Caustic Soda solution showed no loss of effectiveness in lowering surface tension.
In addition to being an effective wetting agent and detergent in Caustic Soda solutions, this surfactant at 1.0% in HCl and at 10% in Nitric Acid solutions lowers the surface tension to below 30 dynes/cm.
