+ Alkali
+ Chelant
  • Biopure™ GLDA- powerful chelating agent made from natural, biodegradable, renewable raw materials. It exhibits excellent metal chelation properties, high water solubility, stability over a wide pH range, and low ecotoxicity. Biopure™ GLDA is NTA free and also functions great as a preservative booster.
  • Versene 100: Strongest, most versatile, and widely used chelant for controlling metal ions over a broad pH range in aqueous systems. Versene 100 is stable under widely varying conditions of temperature, acidity, alkalinity and the presence of other chemicals.
  • Versene 100XL: Manufactured to high purity specifications. Designed to limit impurities such as NTA (<1000ppm) and Glycolate.
+ Enzyme Stabilizers
  • Calcium Chloride: Takes the edge off very strong chelants in concentrates.
  • Propylene Glycol: Complexes Enzymes away from attack when in concentrate. Dispels on dilution.
  • Sodium Borate: Complexes Enzymes away from attack when in concentrate.  Doubles as formula builder.
  • Zemea 1,3 PDO: Complexes Enzymes away from attack when in concentrate. Dispels on dilution.
  • Glycerin
+ Polymer
  • Acusol™ 505N: Dispesive agent and provides good Hand Feel.
  • Acusol 820: Rheology modifier/stabilizer with unusually high aqueous thickening and stabilizing efficiency. Can thicken solutions containing high levels of surfactants at low pH.
  • Acusol Pro: An anionically charged, water soluble polymer that enables the formulator to develop streak-free, hard surface cleaners that provide for superior grease removal, and make next-time cleaning easier, without contributing to build-up


+ Solvent
  • Omnia: High-performance solvent that offers an exceptional combination of performance and safety
  • d-limonene: Legendary Degreasing Solvent, with some Stripping Properties. Emulsifies or couples.
  • P series Glycol Ethers: Environmentally and Toxicologically Friendly Co-Solvents for Insolubles and Fragrances.  Allows for Versatile Formulations on Varieties of Soils.  Great Wetter.
+ Surfactant
  • Jurfactant 215 UP: Coupler, streak free. Superior alkiline stability, highly compatible with plastics and other surfactants. High gloss retention and no residue free. Easily biodegradable, excellent foaming and cleansing properties, low eco-skin toxicity.
  • NOVEL 810-4.5: Alcohol Ethoxylate. Emulsifier and wetting penetrant, exceptional oil and grease performance.  HLB 10.5  Great handling.  Low streak. Great rinser.
  • Tergitol EH-6: Excellent wetting and hard surface cleaning; Low pour point / Narrow gel range; Faster dissolution time
  • Tergitol LFE-635: Excellent cleaning and degreasing of hard surfaces ; Markedly improved low foam performance
  • Bio-soft LFS-07: can often replace alkyl polyglucoside surfactants in cleaners due to its excellent low film/streak performance.
