For modern consumers with increasingly hectic lifestyles, saving time on everyday duties, or reducing down-time in an industrial setting, is strongly desired. Therefore, cleaning products which can reduce the time taken to clean, or the frequency of cleaning, are becoming an attractive proposition. Products with “easy clean” or “reduced cleaning” claims are already available in the market place, but the performance does not always meet the requirements.
The use of surface modification agents is also an approach to achieve anti-static properties in cleaning products. This anti-static performance reduces the build-up of static charge on a surface to avoid the attraction of dust, resulting in surfaces that need cleaning less often. Anti-static agents also modify the surface to be more hydrophilic, which attracts water from air humidity and forms a thin water film. This water film has a much higher conductivity than e.g. untreated polymeric surfaces, resulting in a greatly accelerated decay of static charge. Therefore, a charge can’t build-up and dust is not attracted to the modified surface. There is a large demand for effective anti-static cleaners as the build-up of static charge is often a problem for polymer surfaces and screens of electronic devices.
Our surface modification agents can help to formulate high value cleaning products and add new claims, such as easier cleaning.
