Low-foaming nonionic surfactants for detergent & cleaners and industrial formulators
The hydrophobic Pluronic® PE grades are effective foam suppressants. The hydrophilic Pluronic® PE grades perform well as dispersing agents and emulsifiers. They are supplied in liquid, paste, solid, or powder form, depending on their degree of ethoxylation. They can be employed in a very wide variety of applicationssuch asdefoamers in sugar refining, wetting agents in agro chemical formulations, and as lubricants in metalworking fluids.
The Pluronic® RPE grades are mainly employed in metalworking fluids as foam suppressants, dispersing agents and lubricants. They are also used as foam suppressants in water treatment applications and in the food industry
