 ROKAnol DB7 belongs to the group of non-ionic surfactants based on fatty alcohol ethoxylates with a C12-C15 carbon distribution. It is a highly concentrated product that contains approximately 100% of the active ingredient. Its INCI name is C12-15 Pareth-7. The product belongs to the ROKAnol DB series, which is characterised by a high surface activity. Therefore, ROKAnol DB7 is a surfactant that is excellent as a raw material for the production of detergents and cleaners. It is also successfully used as a raw material or additive in many different formulations in other industries.

The commercial product is characterised by a light colour at 40°C (max. 70 on the Hazen scale). At room temperature, it takes the form of a paste or cloudy liquid with a tendency to delaminate. The solidification point for ROKAnol DB7 oscillates around 20°C. The hydroxyl number of the product varies between 100 and 114 mgKOH/g. The hydrophilic-lipophilic balance (HLB) of the product is 12, which indicates good water solubility. ROKAnol DB7 is compatible with other non-ionic surfactants. It also works very well with anionic and cationic surfactants and many auxiliary substances.

ROKAnol DB7 is a surfactant with very good foaming and excellent wetting, degreasing, washing and cleaning properties. It also has emulsifying and dispersing abilities. The use of the product as an ingredient in cleaning formulations makes them highly stable, often without the use of hydrotropic agents. ROKAnol DB7 is stable in the presence of hard water as well as in a reducing and oxidising environment. It is a surfactant that is active in acidic and neutral environments and in dilute alkali.

Thanks to its wide range of application features, ROKAnol DB7 can be used as a versatile raw material for the production of a broad variety of detergents. The product is an excellent ingredient in washing liquids and capsules, window cleaners, washing-up liquids, floor cleaners, as well as bleaches, formulations for washing and car care, and agents for the care of leather upholstered furniture. ROKAnol DB7 is also a component of professional cleaners dedicated to institutional and industrial use. These include, among others, agents for industrial washing, agents for cleaning hard surfaces in industrial plants and large area facilities, formulations for cleaning and degreasing metal surfaces and CIP (Cleaning in Place) formulations.

ROKAnol DB7 is also a surfactant used in the cosmetics industry. This is due to the product’s cleansing and emulsifying properties. As a result, the product can be used as a component of many personal care formulations, which include cosmetics for hair washing and care. As an emulsifier, the product is also used in the production of bituminous masses (asphalts) and various types of adhesives and coatings.

ROKAnol DB7 is a biodegradable product that complies with the biodegradability criteria as laid down in Regulation (EC) No 648/2004 on detergents.
