Naturally-Derived High-Foaming Surfactant

Suga®Nate 100NC is a high foaming sulfonated surfactant based on a naturally derived alkyl polyglucoside derivative. Suga®Nate 100NC offers good emulsification, mildness to the skin, and excellent lime soap dispersion to give the formulator maximum flexibility in the preparation of light and heavy-duty cleaners. Suga®Nate 100NC can be used in dishwashing liquids that feature outstanding grease emulsification, mildness to the hands, and excellent foam stability. Suga®Nate 100NC exhibits superior cleaning in very hard water, reducing the need for expensive builder in the formulation. It is also suitable for use in acidic formulations such as those containing glycolic or α-hydroxy acids. The stability of Suga®Nate 100NC at any pH makes it desirable in many formulations for industrial, institutional and household applications.
