Example of use
APG® 325 N is a nonionic alkyl polyglucoside surfactant that provides superior performance by
combining the formulation ease of typical nonionic with the foam characteristics of anionics. APG®
325 N provides excellent detergency and stability benefits in a variety of cleaning products. It exhibits
superior wetting, dispersing, and interfacial tension reduction properties for increased soil removal,
especially on hard surfaces. APG® 325 N is highly soluble in concentrated electrolyte and will
hydrotrope other less soluble ingredients. In addition to these unique performance characteristics,
APG® 325 N alkyl polyglucoside surfactant is made from glucose derived from corn and fatty alcohol.
It is mild and readily biodegradable.
APG® 325 N improves the performance of a variety of cleaning products for household, institutional,
and industrial applications:
Hard Surface Cleaners: APG® 325 N has the wetting, penetrating, and detergency properties desired
for products designed to clean surfaces such as glass, ceramic, plastic, and metal.
In liquid hard surface cleaners, APG® 325 N acts as a hydrotrope to solubilize other ingredients. This
property is a definite advantage since many hard surface cleaners contain high levels of builders and
solvents which have limited solubility. APG® 325 N provides other hard surface cleaning benefits
which are becoming increasingly important to consumers. These include non-streaking, non-filming,
and non-stress cracking of cleaned surfaces, as well as low toxicity.
Institutional and Industrial Cleaners: APG® 325 N is ideally suited for use in a variety of I&I liquid
cleaning systems, especially hard surface cleaning applications. Caustic stability
