Pluronic® - Low-foaming nonionic surfactants for detergent & cleaners and industrial formulators
Pluronic® types are chemically EO/PO or PO/EO blockpolymers. Due to their nonionic character and the molecular structure they are useable as dispersing additive. In addition, and in relation to the alkoxylation distribution they provide defoaming properties as well. Pluronic® PE The hydrophobic Pluronic® PE grades are effective foam suppressants. The hydrophilic Pluronic® PE grades perform well as dispersing agents and emulsifiers. They are supplied in liquid, paste, solid, or powder form, depending on their degree of ethoxylation. They can be employed in a very wide variety of applicationssuch asdefoamers in sugar refining, wetting agents in agro chemical formulations, and as lubricants in metalworking fluids. Pluronic® RPE The Pluronic® RPE grades are mainly employed in metalworking fluids as foam suppressants, dispersing agents and lubricants. They are also used as foam suppressants in water treatment applications and in the food industry.
