Libranox: Amine Oxides

About Libranox Amine oxides:

Product variants: AO10, AO12/14, AO14, CAO, CAP, TOD 5EO

Active content: 24%-40%

An amine oxide is a chemical compound that contains the functional group R3N+−O, an N−O with three additional hydrogen and/or hydrocarbon side chains attached to N. An amine oxides acts as a non-ionic surfactant in neutral and alkaline pH and cationic in acidic conditions, and is compatible with most other surfactants.

Why use Libranox?

The Libranox series can be applied to cleaning products, they perform as excellent detergents, as well as providing excellent foam boosting and foam stabilising properties. They are often used to provide viscosity and strong cleaning powers (grease emulsification and soil suspension) and are extensively used with both sodium hypochlorite and hydrogen peroxide to produce bleach based products. The series produces a dense, stable foam which can used in the formulation of high alkalinity cleaning compounds. It is used in industrial cleaning, once the product is sprayed on to contaminated equipment the amine oxide allows for excellent adhesion to the surface, providing an extended dwell time as required.

The Libranox series can also be applied in personal care products, (shampoos, bath care and showers gels), as the product provides excellent thickening, emollient and emulsifying properties.

Libranox applications:

  • Bubble baths
  • Hair conditioners & shampoos
  • Dishwasher detergents
  • Laundry detergents
  • All purpose cleaning agents
  • Liquid Bleach products
  • Foam stabilisers in rubber and polymer industries
  • High or low foaming capabilities

Why choose Libra Speciality Chemicals to manufacture your Libranox products? 

Libra Speciality Chemical’s tightly honed manufacturing process involving ozonation, reverse osmosis and UV filtration ensures that Libranox products are microbiologically pure, free from bacteria and other contaminants.

Libranox: amine oxides exhibit synergistic effects when combined with anionic and other non-ionic surfactants. For example, when used in combination with anionic sodium lauryl ether sulphate (SLES) it increases it’s detergency effect. The product has a low residual hydrogen peroxide, less than 800ppm, whilst the industry norm is 1500ppm. The finished product has a crystal clear ‘water white’ appearance, ensuring no need for additional colorant in the finished formulation.
