Libranox: Amine Oxides for Surface Cleaning Products

Libra Speciality Chemicals supplies vital performance-enhancing surfactants for surface cleaning products.

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

Industry-leading amine oxide

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 its detergency effect. The product is 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 colourant in the finished formulation.

As well as surface cleaners, Libranox has several additional applications including:

  • 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
