Product manufacturing

  1.     Production of chemical fibres

1.1.        Conditioning and flat preparation for surface treatment of synthetic fibres especially those made up from polyester for both basic type-based fibres and chemically modified fibres: It is applied from the aqueous solutions in concentrations amidst 0,5 up to 5 % by sprinkling or soaking.

   2.     Textile industry

2.1. Freshening of woollen and synthetic fibres in spinning factories:

Dosage: 0,5 up to 2 % of ALVOL BMK 30% and 18 up to 22 % of water from  material weight

 2.2. Unsteady antistatic treatment of all kinds of synthetic fibres in an arbitrary stage of process: for the sufficient treatment 0,5 to 2 % amount of the material weight of ALVOL BMK 30% suffices.  

    3.     Production of cosmetic preparations

ALVOL BMK 30% is an amphoteric surfactant with very well tolerance to skin and mucous membrane and is exquisite in products formulations destined for personal hygiene. High foaming ability, foam stability and high biodegradability are being utilized in formulations of shampoos, bathing foams, shower preparations, liquid soaps and so on.
