ALMIPAL ABAused in various industrial branches for instance as washing and cleaning agent
ALMIPAL ABA is a blend solution of sodium alkyl-benzene-sulphonate and sodium alkyl-sulphate. It is used in various industrial branches for instance as washing and cleaning agent. ALMIPAL ABA is yellow up to yellow-brown mid-viscous liquid of anion-active properties. Its foaming quality is at medium level.
ALMIPAL ABA must comply with these quality signs:
Methodology of setting
Content of active substance (%)
ČSN ISO 2271
Molecular weight (g.mol-1)
pH of 3% water solution
7 up to 9
For the basic usage as a surfactant ALMIPAL ABA is mixed up with about fivefold quantity of water warm within 30 to 50 oC. Originated solutions are just slightly turbid and adequately stable. Owing to the optimum representation of particular substances in the blend, exquisite cleaning, washing and emulsifying properties of the pigmented and fatty impurities are achieved. Above mentioned properties along with very good biodegradability destine ALMIPAL ABA for both industrial usage and formulation of washing and cleaning preparations.
1. Wetting agents’ formulation
As a mixed surfactant, ALMIPAL ABA is an appropriate active substance for the preparation of powdered wetting agents for mechanical but even for automatic washing machines. The structure of the used concoction on the drying tower may be as follows:
Almipal ABA 10 up to 12 weight units
Slovapon N 3 up to 4 weight units
Soap 3 up to 5 weight units
Sodium Tri-polyphosphate 30 up to 40 weight units
Carboxy-methyl cellulose 0.6 up to 1 weight units
Sodium silicate 5 up to 9 weight units
Sodium perborate 15 up to 30 weight units
OZP 0.3 up to 0.75 weight units
Enzymes 0.3 up to 0.75 weight units
Water, sodium sulphate the rest remaining to 100 weight units
Another appropriate example is the formulation of washing-dishes agent. In this process, the blend of ALMIPAL ABA and ETOXON 26% is the most common type of preparation featuring high efficiency and low price as shown below:
Almipal ABA 30 weight units
Etoxon 26% 15 weight units
Alvol AKD 3 weight units
Isopropanol 7 weight units
Perfume, dyestuff, water, preservative up to 100 weight units
2. Textile industry
ALMIPAL ABA may be suitably applied in following technologies:
2.1 Bocking: 0,5 up to 1 kg of ALMIPAL ABA to 100 kg of material
2.2 Scouring of concoctions, freshening, preparations etc.: 0,5 to 3 g a liter event. with an additive of salt
2.3 Pre-treatment of grey goods: 1 to 3 g a liter, event. with an additive of alkalis in temperature within 70 up to 100 oC.
2.4 Printing dyes: 10% aqueous solution of ALMIPAL ABA
2.5 Dyeing: 0,2 up to 0,5 g a liter
2.6 Washing after dyeing and printing: 1 up to 2 g a liter
2.7 Washing after final adjustments: 0,5 up to 1 g a liter
3. Cleaning and washing in various fields
ALMIPAL ABA is generally used for the preparation of washing and cleaning solutions in all industrial branches, where the need to get rid of pigmented even fatty impurities out of solid surfaces is evident. However, the application must not be hampered by relatively high foaming quality of the preparation.The dosing ranges generally from 2 to 10 g a liter of ALMIPAL ABA in 1 liter of cleaning solution.
ALMIPAL ABA is delivered in metallic drums with screw-sealed lid of a content of 200 liters or in other containers that have been discussed in advance. It is stored in closed containers at the places protected from direct climatic influences. The recommended storing temperature is within +5 to +25 °C. When the temperature drops below 15 oC it transforms gradually into paste-like form. On the other hand, when heated up to 20 oC it becomes liquid without any impact on the quality change of product. Homogenization is recommended prior to the initial use.
ALMIPAL ABA is transported in covered vehicles and is not subject to the ADR/RID regulations.
If the product is transported and stored according to the above mentioned conditions, the warranty is 6 months from the date of stock-out.
