Product Applications
  • Detergents and Degreasers: Calimulse® PR is both oil soluble and water dispersible. Due to its low water content, it is used as a degreaser detergent for many solvent degreaser formulations (including turpentine-based products). It is also an excellent surfactant in dry cleaning, laundry pre-spotter and hard surface cleaner applications.
  • Emulsifiers: Calimulse® PR is a very stable, high performance emulsifier and dispersant in agricultural concentrates, latexes, and coatings. Dilutable micro-emulsion concentrates can be easily formulated with Calimulse® PR. Calimulse® PR provides great emulsification and wetting properties in both water and oil soluble formulations.
  • Dispersant: Calimulse® PR is good dispersant for various pigments and carbon black.
  • Oil Field Applications: Calimulse® PR is a crystal wax modifier in numerous oilfield applications. Calimulse® PR provides excellent paraffin control in production operations and downhole applications.

Storage and Handling Information
  • Do not store with strong oxidizing agents and avoid contact with aluminum, iron, and copper.
  • Recommended storage temperatures between 40 and 120°F to prevent material from freezing and forming a solid gel on the bottom of containers.
  • Avoid excessive heat. Warming and strong agitation is necessary to reconstitute the material.
  • Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing.
  • Wear appropriate personal protective equipment and observe good industrial hygiene practices.
  • Spilled material is slippery and foams profusely when hit with a stream of water.
