Technical Details & Test Data

Product Efficacy Studies
  • Hydrotrope Properties of DeTERIC LP:

DeTERIC LP is the superior hydrotrope when compared to other high foaming amphoteric surfactants in several electrolytic systems. To determine hydrotrope capabilities, a series of cloud point tests were performed with 3% NPE-9 and 2.5% hydrotrope in the electrolytes listed below. The higher the cloud point temperature, the more efficient the hydrotrope.
