A formulator’s dream is to come up with an ideal formula that is cost/performance effective and can be developed in a rather short period without making tens, if not hundreds, of prototypes while slogging through endless rounds of testing and data generation. We formulators need to meet various deadlines and juggle demands on a daily basis. It would be nice to have some help to make it easier to develop a formula.
Pilot Chemical Company’s super concentrate is a patent-pending, efficient, and innovative blend of anionic, nonionic and cationic surfactants that is nearly 100% active liquid. It is a cold processable, low viscosity, free free-flowing liquid with a low freeze point for easy handling and storage. The super concentrate formula has exceptional detergency performance; and can be used to develop laundry unit dose, liquid laundry detergents and hard surface cleaners.
The proprietary super concentrate blend of anionic, cationic and nonionic surfactants in specific ratios makes the product a high-performing base formulation product. Formulators can use about 30% less of the super concentrate surfactant blend in liquid laundry detergents than conventional surfactants used in laundry applications and get comparable or better detergency performance. It is effortless to formulate a unit dose laundry detergent using Pilot’s super concentrate product. Just adding enzymes to the blend yields a high-performing unit dose laundry detergent formula.
A significant market trend in cleaning products is sustainability which can mean using less water and delivering higher actives in the formula. In laundry detergents, there has been a
