Solvay launches Mirapol® Surf N, its new High Active Natural Polymer for Modern Surface Cleaning
Fulda, Germany, October 16th, 2014 – Solvay unveils its breakthrough innovation for surface cleaning formulations at the Sepawa Congress and Detergents Conference, stand 408 and 353-354 from 15-17th October 2014 at Fulda, Germany.
Saving time and cleaning without effort are must-haves for consumers from their household detergents. In parallel, in recent years,plastics have revolutionized not only the kitchens, bathrooms but also the dishes!
Surfaces have evolved from traditional wood, glass and ceramic to more and more plastic derivatives such as melamine, polycarbonate and PMMA. From this new trend emerges a new need for adapted household cleaning formulations.
In this context, formulators are challenged to create efficient solutions that will make the cleaning of those modern surfaces easier and quicker.
While Mirapol® Surf S polymers are a well-established range of polymers for hydrophilization of surfaces such as ceramic, glass, stainless steel,Solvay launches a unique technology enabling formulators to deliver the key benefits consumers now expect for even modern plastic surfaces.
With Mirapol® Surf N, Solvay makes a step change in household cleaning making it effortless and longer-lasting.
Mirapol® Surf N are natural-based polymers which hydrophilize plastic-derived surfaces, leading to spot-less cleaning, faster and uniform drying, and easier subsequent cleaning thanks to reduced soil adhesion!
Mirapol® Surf N polymers were specifically designed to help gently clean and accelerate the drying of plastic kitchen surfaces, plastic dishware in dishwashers, plastic shower doors, etc. Mirapol® Surf N key benefits can also be outside the house on whiteboards, lab benches and many other applications!
- Mirapol® Surf N HSC is suitable for plastic-coated surfaces in kitchens and bathrooms: the hydrophilization of the surface reduces soil adhesion, leaving it cleaner longer and making next time cleaning much easier and faster.
- Mirapol® Surf N ADW is suitable for Automatic Dish Wash: the hydrophilization of plastic dishware makes the drying faster and spot-free. No need to dry plastic boxes by hand at the end of the cycle!
With the combination of its key technologies and its technical expertise in laundry cleaning & bleaching, disinfectants, dish washing and hard surface cleaning applications, Solvay is the partner every step of the way in helping companies meet specific consumer needs. Key products from Solvay are presented at its stand 408 or 353-354 during Sepawa Congress and Detergents Conference from 15-17th October 2014 at Fulda, Germany, including:
