Stepan Company has developed two highactive alkoxylates, BIO-SOFT® LFS-04 and BIO-SOFT LFS-07, that can remove soil without leaving behind a residue. The BIO-SOFT LFS-Series finds utility in multi-purpose and multi-surface products – from tackling tough dirt and grime to cleaning windows and countertops.

Traditionally, alcohol ethoxylates are known to provide cleaning power to a formulation. However, they can leave behind a film or streaked appearance on the applied surface unlike alkyl polyglycosides (APG).  BIO-SOFT® LFS-04 and BIO-SOFT LFS-07provide cleaning power and the low filming and streaking performance that has been missing in the market. They provide superior cleaning performance and are especially effective in low-active products like floor and glass cleaners. Some can even be used as heavy duty cleaners for heavier soil loads.

BIO-SOFT® LFS-04

BIO-SOFT® LFS-04 is a proprietary, nonionic surfactant technology from Stepan Company that is used for hard surface cleaning formulations where low/film streak performance is important such as glass , floor and multi-surface cleaners. With a very low critical micelle concentration (CMC), it is especially useful for concentrates with high dilution rates where minimal film/streaking is desired, such as glass windows and mirrors, floors and ceramic. This product can also be utilized for ready-to-use (RTU) cleaners and can often replace alkyl polyglucoside surfactants in cleaners.

BIO-SOFT® LFS-07

BIO-SOFT® LFS-07 is a high active nonionic surfactant blend that can be used in a wide variety of cleaning applications due to its degreasing power. This product is especially useful in cleaners used on surfaces where powerful cleaning combined with minimal filming/streaking is desired, such as glass windows and mirrors, floors, ceramic, and vehicle body and windows. BIO-SOFT LFS-07 can often replace alkyl polyglucoside surfactants in cleaners due to its excellent low film/streak performance. With BIO-SOFT LFS-07 is suitable for ready-to-use (RTU) and concentrated cleaners with low to mid dilution rates.
