Technical Details & Test Data

Cationic Liquid Dispersion Polymers

Sifloc - D - Cationic Liquid Dispersion Polymers - 1

  • Cationic, non-associative polymers
  • Products supplied as a liquid dispersion polymer (LDP)
  • Efficient rheology at low incorporation levels with shear-thinning rheological properties
  • Product esthetics of opaque, rich, thickened aspect
  • Shear tolerant
  • Stabilize dispersions and emulsions
  • Easy-to-use liquid form e> automated dosing
  • No heat required for polymer development
  • Pre- or post- addition of Sifloc - D to formulation possible for flexibility in manufacturing process
Cationic Polymers
  • Rheology modifiers for aqueous-based products
  • Aqueous solutions of Sifloc - D cationic products are non- Newtonian fluids that are shear-thinning and exhibit no thixotropy to provide:
    • Desired viscosity for pour and dispensing properties
    • Application (e.g., spreadability) of product
    • Impart vertical surface cling to enhance product efficacy (e.g., for cleaning, disinfection, etc)
  • Function to stabilize dispersions
  • Linear build of viscosity as a function of Sifloc - D concentration for ease of manufacturing processes
Fabric Rinse Conditioners

Benefits of Using Sifloc - D in a Rinse Conditioner:

  • Versatility of use in dilute to ultra conditioners with major types of softener actives
  • Effectively builds desired viscosity and flow properties
  • Non-associative rheology modifier that is shear tolerant for benefits in manufacturing and packaging processes of rinse conditioners
  • Stabilizes dilute and concentrated rinse conditioners for long-term product stability, especially ester quat-based rinse conditioners, which are subject to hydrolysis
  • Enhances stability of fragrance emulsion in the conditioner
  • Potential for post addition of Sifloc - D for simplification of manufacturing of rinse conditioners of varying viscosities

Dilute DHTDMAC Fabric Rinse Conditioner:

Sifloc - D - Fabric Rinse Conditioners - 1

Long-term Stability of Fabric Rinse Conditioners:

Fabric rinse conditioners based on ester quat typically suffer from hydrolysis of the quat to fatty acid and amine

  • Over time the fatty acid builds up and causes the product to thicken and eventually to solidify
  • Higher temperatures increase hydrolysis rate

Thus, storage and transportation conditions will affect long-term stability.

Sifloc - D - Fabric Rinse Conditioners - 1

Effect of High Shear on Dilute Fabric Softeners:

  • Fabric rinse conditioner with Sifloc - D is not adversely affected by shear.
  • 3% actives, rinse conditioner (Armosoft® DEQ)

Sifloc - D - Fabric Rinse Conditioners - 1

Storage Stability of Post Modified Ultra Rinse Conditioner:

  • 16% active ester quat dispersion thinned with calcium chloride. Initial viscosity of 102 mPa.s
  • Viscosity then adjusted with 0.2% Sifloc - D
  • Excellent stability of ultra fabric rinse conditioner containing Sifloc - D

Sifloc - D - Fabric Rinse Conditioners - 1

Rheology Modifiers
  • Highly efficient cationic rheology modifiers for aqueous-based consumer or professional HI&I products
  • Compatible with typical HI&I ingredients
  • Impart visual appeal to end product through rheology
  • Transparent or opaque product esthetics that enhance consumer perception of product performance
  • Improve product efficacy
  • Provide desired application properties to end product
  • Stabilize dispersions and emulsions
  • Ease of use
