• It is extremely versatile and can be used in all detergent formulations be it powder, cake, liquid or paste.
  •  When compared to 96% LABSA on 100% basis, it is always cost effective.
  • The appearance of both LABSA 90% and 96% are so identical that it is impossible to differentiate one from the other visually. Both are pale   yellow liquids with the odour of sulphur and produced by sulphonation process.
  • To maintain a given activity in a detergent formulation, more LABSA 90% by weight will have to be added. It is like more sweet and less sweet sugar. You have to add more of the less sweet sugar to attain a given sweetness.
  • The presence of higher free Sulphuric acid in LABSA 90% is desirable as it leads to the formulation of Sodium Sulphate when reacted with Na2CO3. By using LABSA 90%, saving in quantity of Sodium Sulphate is possible.
  • Free oil or NDOM is basically the unreacted alkyl benzene that is present in LABSA. Any presence of oily matter is harmful for the detergent as it reduces the foaming activity and acts as an anti detergent. Free oil in LABSA 90% is maximum 1%; but the normal result is between 0.25% - 0.6% and the quality of detergent is much better.
  • Colour of LABSA 90% is max 50 klett; but ours is normally 25-30 klett and is very much suitable for the production of white powder.
  • More than 500,000 tonnes per annum is manufactured and used in India alone.
  • Top brands such as Rin, Surf Excel, Henko, Mr. White and Wheel are produced using LABSA 90% only. In the last few years LABSA 90% has found acceptance in more than 60 countries worldwide including Indian subcontinent, Middle East, Africa, Europe, North and South America, Asia Pacific etc.
