ISP Specialty Surfactants Gains CleanGredients Listing

August 6, 2008

International Specialty Products (ISP) announced the listing of its Surfadone LP-100 and LP-300 specialty surfactants on CleanGredients, an online database providing formulators of industrial and institutional (I&I) cleaning products with information on chemical ingredients whose environmental and human health attributes have been independently verified.

A CleanGredients listing signifies that test data demonstrating the aquatic toxicity, biodegradability, and ingredient formulations for Surfadone LP-100 and LP-300 have been reviewed and verified by a third party (NSF International) using the Design for the Environment (DfE) Screen for Surfactants, a set of criteria defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s DfE program for designating surfactants with especially positive environmental characteristics.

ISP’s Surfadone LP specialty surfactants are linear, N-alkyl-2-pyrrolidones ideally suited for I&I and household cleaners, fountain solutions and pigment dispersions. The surfactants exhibit superior reduction of dynamic surface tension in comparison with traditional ethoxylated surfactants (APEs, NPEs). This allows for rapid wetting on both low- and high-energy substrates.
