Anionic for Low Foam, High Caustic Spray Cleaning

Modified Polyether

Colonial DF-20 is an anionic modified polyether that behaves as an anionic in alkali concentrates but displays nonionic cloud point behavior in diluted use solutions. This unique surfactant is intended for use in highly alkaline, built liquid cleaner concentrates. Colonial DF-20 exhibits very low foam and excellent hard-surface detergency when used at temperatures above its cloud point in use solutions. It is very effective in power-wash metal cleaners, low-foam floor cleaners, steam cleaners, liquid dishwashing compounds and other low-foam cleaning applications.
