Water Soluble Polymers


We offer dedicated water soluble polymers for the Home Care and Industrial & Institutional cleaning industry to enable choices for the required properties and functions, such as surface modification, improved rinsing and drying, scale inhibition, soil release, anti-redeposition, and rheology modification. 




Used in laundry detergents, the special polymer Sokalan® HP 20 helps to prevent the redisposition of soil from the washing liquor onto the textiles. This prevents graying of white textiles and helps to keep colors bright. It can also be used as a stain booster for certain bleachable and particulate soils.
