A85

Part of Vitech's family of Acid Replacement Technologies, A85 is a safe, low pH organic salt used primarily as a low cost of acidity, a pH adjuster, and is an effective companion acid for other Vitech technologies. It aids in brightening of aluminum and can also replace certain mineral acids in some applications. A85 is classified as non-irritant to skin, is non-fuming, and ships non-regulated in the United States and Canada.

AFA

AFA is a silicone free, anti-fog additive for glass cleaner formulas. This economical additive can be post added to most traditional glass cleaners or used with our VOC free exempt cleaning technology, EGM.

ALB

ALB is a safe, DOT non-regulated alternative to hydrofluoric acid and other traditional acids. It is an effective aluminum brightener and oxidation remover, while also being very effective at removing complex silicates.

APW

APW replaces hydrofluoric, ammonium bifluoride and other traditional acids. Especially effective at cleaning rust and iron salts. Excellent as a wheel cleaner to remove brake and wheel dust.

BJSi

BJSi is a proprietary, low pH, organic salt used to replace traditional mineral and organic acids. Vitech International’s BJSi can remove calcium carbonate 50-80% more effectively than phosphoric, citric, and glycolic with additional safety, shipping and handling benefits. Ideal for formulating a green, Safer Choice or Green Seal® approved product, BJSi is phosphate free, VOC exempt and a low contributor to BOD/COD in effluents.

BVM

A hypochlorite bleach stable surfactant used to build viscosity or provide wetting in chlorine bleach systems.  Typically, BVM is used in conjunction with ILBT, another product used to build viscosity in bleach.  It will produce high levels of foam and can therefore be a useful secondary surfactant in some cleaner formulations, especially those using Q3 or eQi technology.

BW

BW is an aqueous anionic polymer that provides dispersing and anti-redeposition of soils in a wide range of applications, including laundry, transportation cleaning and degreasing, and scale removal. BW effectively suspends many types of solids while being cost effective and requiring only low usage levels. BW is stable in alkali, peroxide, percarbonate, hypochlorite, and most acidic formulations.

CK

CK is an emulsifier for producing cold batch, solvent based, waterless hand cleaners. Hand cleaners formulated with CK exhibit outstanding high and low temperature stability, enhanced cleaning and rinsing properties.

CVS

CVS is a paraffinic hydrocarbon which optimizes solvency, flash point, odour, environmental profile and price.  It demonstrates good solvency with respect to bitumen. The product is virtually odourless, has a flash point of 180F and is readily biodegradable.  Furthermore, it can be used in very cold environments, as it boasts a pour point of less than -90F.

EGM

EGM is a polymeric surfactant system for producing VOC exempt glass cleaners and multi-surface cleaners. Formulate a cleaner without solvents, glycol ethers or ammonia that will pass current Green Seal® and EcoLogo protocols.

eQi

A recent member to the Q family of readily biodegradable, high performance surfactants, eQi is a highly economical surfactant with the outstanding wetting and detergency typical of the Q surfactant family. Ideal for applications where particulate and carbonaceous soils are an issue, eQi was designed and tested for the cleaning challenges in the oil fields but is economical enough for everyday use in transportation, food service, and all purpose cleaning. 

HNA

HNA is used for natural products to meet Green Seal® and EcoLogo approval. Specifically for use with BJSi, HNA addresses the issue of discolouration which can occur on the surface of certain metals in spray ‘n wipe applications.

ILBT

ILBT (in line bleach thickener) is a surfactant blend used to build thixotropic viscosity in sodium, lithium, and potassium hypochlorites. ILBT has exceptional chlorine and viscosity stability, while providing foaming, wetting, and detergency.

iQLF

iQLF is our best low foaming technology in the Q family.  The product has a truly remarkable degree of detergency as compared to both low foam surfactants and many foaming surfactants.  It produces a low level of foam at all temperatures when formulated properly, even when used at high levels of shear.  iQLF technology allows users to reduce the temperature of cleaning and level of alkalinity in light of the exceptional detergency profile.

JK50

JK50 is an outstanding hydrotroping/coupling surfactant for use in high alkaline/caustic systems. In many cases, JK50 is a lower cost material than other similar products, while also requiring lower use levels to achieve comparable performance. Excellent environmental profile and lower foam characteristics.

LFQ

LFQ is a low foam surfactant with outstanding wetting and powerful detergency, while maintaining low foam at all temperatures. It is acid, alkaline, and peroxide stable, while also having no chloride or salt, making it extremely versatile. Readily biodegradable and VOC exempt, LFQ opens up new opportunities to reduce costs, energy use, and potentially alkalinity.

M5

M5 is an acid replacement technology that can be shipped non-regulated via air, marine and ground. Used to replace traditional minerals and organic acids, M5 can effectively remove insoluble salts while still safe on most metals. Excellent shipping, safety and handling benefits.

ME80

ME80 is a one component emulsifier to produce thermodynamically stable micro-emulsions. Easy to use, cost effective and works with a wide range of solvents.

MSI

MSI is a proprietary additive for use with BJSi and hydrochloric acid to minimize the potential for discoloration on certain metals when used in spray ‘n’ wipe applications.

NLS90

NLS90 is a naturally derived surfactant system for laundry and pre-spotter, floor cleaners and hand dish applications. Formulate laundry detergents for top loading or high efficiency front loading machines, a low cost dish formula or a high dilution floor cleaner with the versatility of NLS90. Stable in peroxide.

NQ3

NQ3 is a “naturally derived” version of Q3 which has identical physical and performance characteristics of Q3 with a bio-based content of 48%.  It is a highly efficient surfactant with remarkable wetting and detergency properties which allow for reduction or total elimination of VOC’s in degreaser formulations, without sacrificing performance.  It is highly effective under dilution and stable in acids, alkali and peroxides.  In addition, the environmental profile is exceptional and the chemistry is listed on the Cleangredients list. 

NSW4

A foaming bucket wash concentrate with superior water beading properties that leaves a durable, wax-like finish. Easy to formulate with and thickens on dilution. NSW4 is also DEA and NPE free!

Q3

Q3 is a readily biodegradable surfactant system that provides superior penetration and removal of oily/greasy particulate soils. Formulate a green, GreenSeal or EcoLogo approved cleaner with Q3. With an outstanding environmental profile, Q3 contains no alkyl phenol ethoxylates. Stable in acids, alkali and hydrogen peroxide.

QHD

An important member of the Q family of readily biodegradable, high performance surfactants, QHD is designed for heavy duty degreasing or ready to use all-purpose cleaners.  It is the most powerful of the Q surfactants but should be used at use levels of 0.25% or higher in order to be highly effective.

SCP

SCP is a silicone/surfactant developed for water based stainless steel cleaners & polishes and furniture polishes. Perfect for spray, wipe and gel applications, SCP dries to a durable finish with an improved streak and smear profile compared to traditional silicone and Mineral Oil Systems.

SQS

SQS is a silicone quaternary that provides enhanced water beading properties in automotive oil/solvent based drying agents. Also a great choice for use in clear coat protectorants, sealer waxes, triple/poly foamers and wash ‘n’ wax.

TSR

TSR is a powdered absorbent system for producing oil stain removers, coating removers and sweeping compounds. Use TSR for exceptional oil and grease lifting from porous substrates. Simply pour it on the spot, let dry and sweep/brush off.
