Residual marks on clothing and bedding after washing is caused by blood deposits as well as also yellow staining due to iron containing water. Traditional alternatives can be either too corrosive when a strong acid is used or ineffective with a weak acid.
Akzo Nobel’s Dissolvine® CSA is based on Glucoheptonate and can remove iron from laundry without the need for strong acids. Dissolvine® CSA is not a chelating agent but is a crystal growth agglomeration inhibitor which exhibits an exceptional chelating ability for iron and other transition metal ions at high pH and is active and stable over a wide temperatures and pH range. Dissolvine® CSA is plant based, readily biodegradable, non-toxic and therefore not labelled.
Dissolvine® GL38 can be used in conjunction with Dissolvine® CSA when seeking a high performing yet environmentally friendly solution to the issue of iron removal and capture hard water ions to de-glue the soil from the surface and improve the cleaning action. Dissolvine® GL38 is Akzo Nobel’s safe and readily biodegradable chelate with an excellent eco and tox profile that is based on a natural and sustainable source.
