Q3 is a readily biodegradable surfactant system that provides superior penetration and removal of oily/greasy particulate soils. Formulate a cleaner with Q3 to meet most green and environmental certifications. With an outstanding environmental profile, Q3 contains no alkyl phenol ethoxylates. Stable in acids, alkali and hydrogen peroxide.

BJSi is a proprietary, low pH, organic salt used to replace traditional mineral and organic acids. TriadaChem’s BJSi can remove calcium carbonate 50-80% more effectively than phosphoric, citric, and glycolic with additional safety, shipping and handling benefits. Ideal for formulating products approved by various green certifications, BJSi is phosphate free, VOC exempt and a low contributor to BOD/COD in effluents.

A hypochlorite bleach stable surfactant used to build viscosity or provide wetting in chlorine bleach systems.  Typically, BVM is used in conjunction with ILBT, another product used to build viscosity in bleach.  It will produce high levels of foam and can therefore be a useful secondary surfactant in some cleaner formulations, especially those using Q3 or eQi technology.

EBS is our most powerful hydrofluoric acid replacement. With data to show no chance of fluorosis upon dermal contact, EBS is a safe way to etch or brighten metals, and remove complex silicates. EBS can be formulated to be non-corrosive to skin at less than 12.5%.

HNA is used for natural products to meet most green and environmental certifications. Specifically for use with BJSi, HNA addresses the issue of discolouration which can occur on the surface of certain metals in spray ‘n wipe applications.

ILBT (in line bleach thickener) is a surfactant blend used to build thixotropic viscosity in sodium, lithium, and potassium hypochlorites. ILBT has exceptional chlorine and viscosity stability, while providing foaming, wetting, and detergency.
