This can help improve formulations and processes in the development of high-performance products, with the surfactant industry being one sector where these polymer designs are attracting significant interest.
So, how does it work? Lactic acid is an ideal base catalyst killer/quencher in the ethoxylation processes. Compared to other acids typically used during surfactant production, it is highly soluble. The resultant salts also have no odor and do not cause skin irritations, while also acting as an integral humectant.
Excellent pH regulation and buffering
Chelation and descaling capability
Natural and non-toxic status
High solubility of salts
