Surfactants

Niacet’s technical acetates, surfactants and Monochloroacetic acid are widely used in a variety of industries.

Our products are used in industrial applications for pH adjustment, crystallization aids, or as catalysts / reagents. Resins, coatings, detergents, hard surface cleaners, dyes, heat packs, carbon black, drilling fluids, ceramics, leather tanning agents, fire extinguisher media, polymers, carpet backing, off-set printing solutions, textile dyes and conditioners, photography solutions, lubricants, anti-freeze, and personal hygiene products are just a few of the applications where Niacet’s products can be used.

Niaproof® Anionic Surfactant 4

Niaproof Anionic Surfactant 4 (NAS4) is a common ingredient in a variety of applications. It is ideal for hot alkaline or hot acid solutions, Niaproof surfactants work well in the strongest acids, salt solutions, alkali, and for oxidizing systems. Versatile Niaproof surfactants offer high solubilizing power in electrolytes, plus all the wetting, dispersing, penetrating, spreading, emulsifying and detergent properties you need.

For Molding, it decreases mulling time and provides more uniform sized sand for use in casting molds and cores. Niaproof Anionic Surfactant 4 is used in Pickling applications, as it reduces the amount of acid required for pickling while decreasing pickling time and providing a uniform pickling solution.

Niaproof Anionic Surfactant 4 is used in Textile processing / Desizing because it improves the efficiency of desizing agents. During Textile Dying, it aids in rapid and level dying (including densely packed materials and leather) providing uniform penetration. Carbonization is achieved in less time with less damage to the wool. And in Kier Boiling it is used to offset alkali in kier boiling operations.

Niaproof Anionic Surfactant 4 is used in Household & Industrial Cleaners and Wallpaper Penetrant to eliminate much of the work involved in scrubbing or wallpaper removal. In Metal Processing / Cleaning applications when it is coupled with alkali, produces a surface cleaner that works more rapidly than alkali alone, providing a thoroughly clean surface suitable for plating or spraying. In Electrolytic Cleaning, it decreases the surface tension of the electrolytic solution to allow for the release of the hydrogen byproduct. In plating applications, it eliminates impurity pitting by dissolving without haze while decreasing the surface tension of the bath.

When Niaproof Anionic Surfactant 4 is used in rubless polishes, less time and effort are needed to ensure a uniform product and the dry film of this product has a good luster and is more even than the film of the polish made by traditional methods.

In Latex Preparations it has excellent emulsifying properties combined with moderate tolerance for pigments & hard water. It is used for the polymerization of acrylic ester monomers and vinyl esters of higher fatty acids.

Available Grades and Packaging

Niaproof Anionic Surfactant 4 is a liquid, colorless to light amber. It is available in 5-gallon polyethylene pails (44 pounds), 55-gallon polyethylene drums (461 pounds), 2300-pound IBC Totes.

 

Niaproof® Anionic Surfactant 08

Niaproof Anionic Surfactant 08 (NAS08) is a common ingredient in a variety of applications. Ideal for hot alkaline or hot acid solutions, Niaproof surfactants work well in the strongest acids, salt solutions, alkalies, and for oxidizing systems. Versatile Niaproof surfactants offer high solubilizing power in electrolytes, plus all the wetting, dispersing, penetrating, spreading, emulsifying and detergent properties you need.

Niaproof Anionic Surfactant 08 is a unique ingredient in the formulation of offset printing fountain solutions. In Photography, it is used in the photo finishing processes. For Molding it decreases mulling time and provides more uniform sized sand for use in casting molds and cores.

Niaproof Anionic Surfactant 08 is used to speed the peeling of fruits while removing field soil and microorganisms. In Pickling applications, it reduces the amount of acid required for pickling while decreasing pickling time and providing a more uniform pickling solution. Agricultural Uses include a coupling agent for inorganic salts used in produce washing solutions.

Niaproof Anionic Surfactant 08 is used in Textile Processing / Bleaching because it provides stability in the presence of concentrated bleaching powder solutions. It also promotes extremely rapid mercerization of grey cotton goods while withstanding the rigorous treatment encountered in concentrated mercerizing liquors.

Niaproof Anionic Surfactant 08 is used in Household & Industrial Cleaners and Wallpaper Penetrant to eliminate much of the work involved in scrubbing or wallpaper removal. In Metal Processing / Cleaning applications it is coupled with alkali, produces a surface cleaner that works more rapidly than alkali alone, providing a thoroughly clean surface suitable for plating or spraying. It is used in High Mineral Acid Cleaners to clean calcium and iron salts found in dairy production. In Electrolytic Cleaning, it decreases the surface tension of the electrolytic solution to allow for the release of the hydrogen byproduct. In Plating applications, it eliminates impurity pitting by dissolving without haze while decreasing the surface tension of the bath.

For Carpet Cleaning Niaproof Anionic Surfactant 08 is used because it does not resoil carpets like lauryl sulfates do. It can be used at 10% in the concentrate, diluted 20 to 1. Niaproof Surfactant 08 is registered  by NSF as a CleanGredients with USEPA  approval.

Available Grades and Packaging

Niaproof Anionic Surfactant 8 is a liquid, colorless to light amber. It is available in 55-gallon polyethylene drums (496 pounds), 2400-pound IBC Tote and bulk shipments.
