Recommended Uses & Known Applications
  • TRIDAC ISO-5 can be used as degreasing agent in leather treatment, as emulsifier for W/O emulsions in agrochemicals, detergency and industrial applications.
  • In metal working field TRIDAC ISO-5 shows good dispersing properties for chip or shaving particles as well as good emulsification behavior regarding to the most common lubricating oils used.
  • In the detergency field TRIDAC ISO-5 is used in HDP formulations due to its high emulsification property at medium-low temperature. It is a low foaming surfactant.

Storage And Handling
  • TRIDAC ISO-5 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 minimize yellowish phenomena.
  • TRIDAC ISO-5 is a cloudy liquid at room temperature and it becomes a solid wax at temperature lower than 15°C. Improvement of appearance and handling at low temperature can be achieved by mixing the product with 10 weight% water to obtain a clear liquid up to a temperature about 0°C.
  • At room temperature TRIDAC ISO-5 is not water soluble.
  • Shelf-life is 36 months from production date for product in its original and sealed packaging.
