October 2013 – Vitech International Launches LFQ, a low foam surfactant with powerful detergency

Vitech International's pursuit of the 'holy grail' of surfactant technology, a low foam surfactant that actually has great detergency, has finally come to fruition. LFQ is designed to have the strong wetting and detergency characteristics of our flagship Q3 technology but without the foam. It is also designed to offer customers the ability to lower costs by being low foam at all temperatures, saving on energy costs, and potentially lowering alkalinity to reduce wear on parts.

October 2013 – Vitech International Launches NSW4, a DEA and NPE free bucket wash concentrate

Building on the success of the previous generations of NSW technology, NSW4 is a response to the growing concerns and Prop65 regulations regarding the use of DEA and Cocamide DEA. Taking it one step further to help limit the need for further customer reformulations due to regulatory changes NSW4 is also NPE free. NSW4 is a foaming bucket wash concentrate with superior water bead properties that leaves a durable and long lasting wax-like finish and reduces drying times following wash. It also thickens on dilution making it easy to use and formulate with. NSW4 can also be used as a foaming spray wax in auto car wash as well as coin-op car wash.

June 2013- Vitech International Launches CHD4 Surfactant

In response to the growing health concerns and regulatory issues (Prop65) surrounding materials such as DEA, cocamide DEA, and MEA, Vitech International proudly introduces CHD4, our next generation DEA-free surfactant for use in hand soaps (gel and foam), bucket washes, body washes, and other areas where these more harmful chemistries are used. CHD4 is naturally derived, mild on skin, and is liquid, which makes it an easy to use alternative versus flake materials requiring heat.

May 2013 – Vitech International Awarded Patent for M5 Acid Replacement

Launched in 2006, M5 has been the ONLY acidic technology that can be shipped non-regulated via ground, marine, and air transport. On May 28th, it was officially issued the United States patent surrounding this innovative, low pH organic salt chemistry. Ideal for use in retail descaling applications where safety and ease of use is paramount, but where performance relative to traditional acids is still a must, M5 has been and remains a strong opportunity for our customers.

March 2013 – Vitech International Awarded Patent for Hydrofluoric Acid Replacements

Launched in 2008 and the winner of the EPA's Pollution Prevention Award the following year, on March 5th Vitech's ALB, and its partner chemistry APW, were officially issued a United States patent surrounding these innovative new chemistries. As safe alternatives to hydrofluoric acid, ALB and APW offer strong performance relative to hydrofluoric, without the serious health effects on workers and their safety, as well as the damage to glass and metal surfaces that can occur with HF based products.
