Glucopon 420 UP is an alkyl polyglycoside surfactant that provides excellent detergency and processing benefits in a variety of cleaning products. It exhibits superior wetting, dispersing and interfacial tension reductions properties for increased soil removal. Glucopon 420 UP is made from renewable raw materials – glucose derived from corn, and fatty alcohols from coconut and palm kernel oils, due to its natural chemistry, Glucopon 420 UP is very mild and readily biodegradable. Glucopon 420 UP is especially effective in hard surface cleaner applications because it is non-streaking on glossy surfaces and non-corrosive to synthetic surfaces. Unlike typical nonionic surfactants, Glucopon 420 UP is highly soluble in concentrated electrolyte solutions and will hydrotrope other less soluble ingredients.
Glucopon 420 UP is ideally suited for used in a variety of I&I liquid cleaning systems, especially laundry and hard surface applications. Caustic stability, builder compatibility, detergency and hydrotrope properties combine to offer the formulator greater flexibility and better cost performance. In addition to these unique performance characteristics, Glucopon 420 UP is self-preserved and contains no added preservatives.
