Cola®Det DEF-40 is a surfactant free from DEA and MEA, serving as an effective emulsifier for lotion-type or "ringing gel" waterless hand cleaners. It offers formulation flexibility, allowing for the creation of slow or fast-set systems without requiring heat or special equipment. Cola®Det DEF-40 enhances the cleaning, rinsing, and rubs out "break" properties of waterless hand cleaner formulations based on odorless mineral spirits, deodorized kerosene, and d-Limonene.
