    Good Morning,  I must admit I am still having trouble with my formula.  It keeps separating after I have stopped mixing.  I have tried looking for the formula that you spoke of  but didn't find a complete formula like you suggested.  In my formula I am not using beeswax either.  Can you offer any assistance?

      Yeah why not, best would be potassium cocoate. Make sure to adjust your foam height though as it cuts down the foam but if you see most of the liquids like Persil, OMO, etc. don't have much foaming and again it is a very unstable foam.

      Add it before Sodium Carbonate though you can add it after texapon as well, it is 38% liquid that I use and you can get ot from many suppliers. Where are you based and which company you work for???

      Thats good Nabil, and where do you buy your acusol 445N?? Why dont you try Acusol 445 which is a non-neutralized version with more active and better price.
    • nabil

      i know that, the costumes procedure are to much complicated and takes to much time to bring something from outside.

      i had to buy the neutralized one as it was available to us at that time with good price.

      i will switch to the non-neutralized one asap this one will finish.

      is there any compatibility issue of acusol with potassium cocoate?
    • Chemist77

      None at all, use freely.

      please, what is your usage level recommendation for potassium cocoate?
      does it effect the transparency of the product?
    • Chemist77
      Chemist77
      Try between 2-5%, check foam height and after few trials you should get it right.
      Good luck.

    Hello Chemist77,

    I've been a lurker on this forum and know that you've used Sina Ekato equipment before. 

    If you don't mind I'd like to know more about their machines. Are they of good quality? How about the accuracy and precision? Does it break down a lot or cause you annoying issues?

    Thanks a lot for that.

    ohhmygod.
