Compatible with anionic, nonionic, amphoteric and cationic surfactants. In high concentrations of electrolyte, Mackam® LSB-50 is a much higher foamer and has more foam stability than our Mackam® 50-SB, a good grade of cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine. When compared to lauramidopropyl betaine, Mackam® LSB-50 exhibits better flash foam and viscosity building characteristics with lauryl sulfates and alpha olefin sulfonates. Mackam® LSB-50 is produced from a high grade of lauric acid and is fully biodegradable. It is stable over the entire pH range in both hard and soft water and has excellent lime soap dispersing properties. Superior mild shampoos, high foaming bath products and liquid soaps may all be formulated with Mackam® LSB-50. Also acts as a high performance foaming agent in oilfield applications.
