This is a basically sodium salt of Acrylic – Maleic acid co-polymer, a polycarboxylate linear polymer which has very useful applications in household & industrial detergents.
It has good dispersant performance against sediments like carbonates and sulphates of Calcium & Magnesium. It has good thermal stability and good compatible with other organic phosphates. The acrylic to maleic acid molar ratio is 3:1.
As sediments dispersant agent in household and industrial detergents which enhances whiteness.
As a processing aid
in the production of powder detergents by reducing number of fines resulting less dusting, and subsequently lower energy consumption
