Air Products today introduced the new Tomakleen™ G-12 additive to its product portfolio for industrial and institutional cleaning.

Tomakleen G-12 additive delivers improved cleaning performance and can reduce or eliminate the need for oxygenated solvents historically used in I&I cleaning products.

Tomakleen G-12 additive is a detergency booster that is used with a surfactant to improve cleaning performance. The unique structure of Tomakleen G-12 additive provides fast monomer migration and better surface exchange to deliver a cleaning “boost” to products such as hard surface cleaners, heavy duty degreasers, and vehicle care products. The solvency of Tomakleen G-12 additive, along with its cleaning performance, can effectively reduce or eliminate the need for oxygenated solvents.

“Increasing environmental regulations and the need to improve worker safety can present a real challenge to formulators. Tomakleen G-12 additive was designed to meet that challenge by delivering improved and faster cleaning while enabling reduced VOC formulations,” said Frank Womack, global business manager, Functional Additives, for Air Products.
