Ionic liquids are compounds that are liquids at low temperatures and functions as solvents, yet they have no VOC content and are environmentally safe. In addition these ionic liquids are categorized as salts that remain as liquids below 100°C. This class of compounds is fast gaining recognition as regulatory and environmental concerns close the door on traditional organic surfactants. Ionic Liquids represent a new technology with potential for use as solvent replacements. Their low vapor pressure makes them potential substitutes for highly volatile organic solvents, thus reducing the amount of pollution caused through solvent evaporation. Their non-flammable nature reduces the risk of fire hazard.
Cola®Solv IES and Cola®Solv OES are ionic liquids offering unique solvent capabilities and useful as replacements for some polar solvents. Both Cola®Solv IES and Cola®Solv OES are compatible with anionic surfactants and can aid in foam stabilization.
Cola®Solv IES and Cola®Solv OES are 100% active, liquid quaternary compound in addition to their solvent capability offer excellent antistatic, lubricating, fiber softening and corrosion inhibiting properties in aqueous and non-aqueous systems.
The unusual lubricating, antistatic, fiber softening and corrosion inhibiting properties suggest the use of Cola®Solv IES and Cola®Solv OES in synthetic coolants and lubricants, plastics, textile softeners and fiber lubricants. Inclusion of either product as surface treatments can aid significantly in static charge reduction.
Cola®Solv IES and Cola®Solv OES can be used in cleaners to reduce the static charge on glass and metallic surfaces. Formulations with Cola®Solv IES and Cola®Solv OES allow water to be more freely rinsed from surfaces. The more uniform surfaces created by Cola®Solv IES and Cola®Solv OES rinse quicker and help prevent re-soiling or re-deposition.
