Surfadone™ LP-100

Surfadone™ LP-100 is a low foaming wetting agent with no critical micelle concentration (CMC), and an HLB of 6. Its water solubility can be enhanced by using it alongside an anionic surfactant, which reduces surface tension and achieves excellent wetting at a low concentration. Surfadone™ LP-100 is biodegradable and aids in penetrating and softening soils to improve grease cleaning. In addition to its compatibility with other surfactants, it is stable across a wide pH range.
