Say goodbye to unpleasant odors!

With the cationic surfactant Cola®Quat SME, Colonial Chemicals Inc. offers an ideal raw material for neutralizing a wide range of unpleasant odors such as tobacco, body odor, animal odors or cooking fat. The surfactant forms complexes with volatile organic molecules and thus minimizes their potential to form odors and reduces their intensity in the air. Cola®Quat SME is easy to formulate and completely water-soluble without the need for additional solubilizers. It can be used in combination with fragrances or as a stand-alone deodorizer without fragrances.

Colonial Chemical Inc. offers a variety of sustainable and innovative raw materials. You can find more information here.
