Commercial Laundry

New Solutions to prevent graying of textiles

BASF offers a wide range of products for Commercial laundry applications. On the basis of launderometer tests and trials in an industrial washer extractor it was proven that the special polymer Sokalan® HP 20 helps to prevent graying of cotton and cotton and polyester mixed fibers. Sokalan® HP 20 significantly improves the dispersion of particulate soils in the washing liquor. In all tests a significantly smaller degree of graying was observed also on the ballast load.

Sokalan® HP 20 enables choices to:

  • Wash with less water
  • Prolong the lifetime of rental textiles
  • Improve primary detergency
  • Clean at moderate pH
  • Be easily formulated into liquid detergents
