Alvol OMK

perfect foam stabilizer in liquid washing, cleaning and even technical agents enhancing washing ability

ALVOL OMK is an aqueous solution of coco-dimethyl-amine oxide. ALVOL OMK is used especially as a perfect foam stabilizer in liquid washing, cleaning and even technical agents. At the same time it also enhances washing ability. It may also be applied in washing agent formulations for hard surfaces including agents for bathrooms, WC and disinfectants. Here [disinfectant] features not only high foaming and wetting ability but acts also like a formulation thickener. It is well-resistant to hard water. In cosmetics, such as shaving foams, shaving creams, hair preparations, bathing and baby foams it acts like gentle, foaming surfactant, giving the washed hair antistatic properties.

Product manufacturing

ALVOL OMK is dosed into the compositions of active agents in the range between 1 up to 7% from the overall surfactants quantity. In combination with anion-active surfactants lowers skin irritation substantially. With regard to substantial thickening abilities it is added into the prescriptions in last production stage of washing or cleaning agent by a specific way. That means securing the foam stabilization at the very beginning of the procedure to its minimum.
