Applications & Uses
Home Care Applications
Recommended Uses & Known Applications
- LIALET 125-7 can be used as detergent product in the wool scouring process, as degreasing in leather treatment, as emulsifier in agrochemicals and agriculture applications.
- In metal working field LIALET 125-7 shows good dispersing properties for chip or shaving particles as well as good emulsification behaviour regarding to the most common lubricating oils used.
- In the detergency field LIALET 125-7 is used in HDP formulations due to its high emulsification property at medium-low temperature.

Storage & Handling
Storage and Handling
- LIALET 125-7 should preferably be stored in stainless steel tanks. It is suggested to keep the product at temperature below 40°C, it is preferable to avoid heating above 60°C and to store under nitrogen in order to minimise yellowish phenomena.
- LIALET 125-7 is a cloudy liquid at room temperature and it becomes clear liquid at temperature about 50°C.
- LIALET 125-7 becomes a solid wax at temperature lower than 21°C. Improvement of appearance and handling at low temperature can be achieved by mixing the product with 5 to 15 weight% water to obtain a clear liquid up to a temperature about 10 C°. At room temperature LIALET 125-7 is water soluble up to 25 weight%.
- Shelf-life is 36 months from production date for product in its original and sealed packaging.
