OF YOUR FAVORITE CLOTHES?

We love to keep on wearing our favorite things, so we wash them more frequently. At the same time, frequent washing gradually damages them. Can innovative detergents break this vicious cycle by not only cleaning fabrics but maintaining them, too?

Stains

A stain is a dirty mark on a fabric comprised of a mixture of fat, protein, starch, and dyes. Usually, these components penetrate deeply, making them difficult to remove.

How TexCare® forms the detergent you need

WE ASK AN EXPERT FROM THE LAB

What kind of fabrics and stains are most common in your region?
The most common stains in North America are greasy ones, especially from meat like burger and bacon, and tomato-based stains. Our fabrics are predominately cotton, poly-cotton, and synthetic fabrics particularly in athletic wear.

»Our lab is set-up to test both conventional top loaders and high efficiency front loaders.«


How do people do their washing in your region?
In North America, the majority of new washer purchases are high efficiency (HE) washers, both top loader and front loader machines. About 50% of the market is now using HE. When it comes to detergents, people in North America prefer liquids. The liquid detergent market is the largest with a steady increase in unit dose, about 25% of new product launches in the past year. Typical washing temperatures for clothing are the cold and warm cycles, which range from 20 to 40°C.

What does this mean for your daily work?
Our lab is set-up to test both conventional top loaders and HE front loaders. All machines run on water systems that make it possible to adjust water hardness and temperature to all common conditions. We purchase pre-soiled standard swatches in common stains aligned with standardized test methods. With our formulation abilities for liquids and pressed powders we can simulate unit dose laundry detergents and booster products.

Can you actually prove that a product works?
Of course. We follow CSPA standardized test protocols for top loaders as well as front loaders and we use standardized stains. Our evaluations include pre-treatment and post-treatment measurements on our spectrophotometer to evaluate the change in LAB color of the stains.

What are the benefits to the consumer?
Active families depend on detergents that work at all temperatures and easily remove stains in the wash. The TexCare® soil release polymers boost the detergent’s stain removal power in cold wash. What’s more: They even provide the strong benefit that new stains are easier to remove. They are easy to formulate and bring value to traditional detergents, unit dose, and cleaning booster products.

TexCare® vs.

Motor Oil

Every stain is different in origin, color and shape. And they also differ in how difficult they are to remove. Motor oil, for example, is a real challenge. How does TexCare® deal with this stain? Or should we ask, how does motor oil deal with TexCare®?

  • TexCare® SRN 170

    The most flexible TexCare®

    Do you know the kind of people who get along with everyone and adapt effortlessly to every new environment? Well, SRN 170 is our polymer version of that. It offers all the standard benefits of the series, but also has been designed in a way that makes it very easy to integrate into all kinds of liquid detergent formulas. Coming as a clear liquid that needs to be added at one percent at the most, SRN 170 blends into formulations like a chameleon.


    Benefits

    • Protects clothes by preventing soil from penetrating deeply into the fabric.
    • Offers soil-release effect in the next wash.
    • Helps remove stains in the first wash.
    • Maintains whiteness of clothes even after multiple washes.
    • Easy to incorporate into most surfactant systems.

    The TexCare® for laundry pods/pouches

    Laundry pouches – also called pods, packs or capsules – are fun to look at and fun to use. This is probably why these dissolvable small bags filled with pre-measured amounts of liquid detergent are getting more and more popular. Since they’re supposed to dissolve in the machine and not before, we’ve created SRN 172: It has a water content of only ten percent, but still adds a healthy dose of dirt-repelling magic to those quirky little packs.


    Benefits

    • Protects clothes by preventing soil from penetrating deeply into the fabric.
    • Offers soil-release effect in the next wash.
    • Helps remove stains in the first wash.
    • Maintains whiteness of clothes even after multiple washes.
    • Especially designed for formulations with low-water content, such as laundry pods and pouches.

  • TexCare® SRN 260

    THE TOP-PERFORMING TEXCARE®

    If wearing clothes that always look new seems like an unattainable dream, SRN 260 is the polymer in our range that brings consumers closest to it. In tests, fabrics washed with the help of this top-performing soil releaser came out up to six times cleaner than those washed with detergent only. The polymer also prevented the redeposition of dirt during washing (the main culprit for graying) almost two times better than standard detergent alone. With SRN 260, taking clothes out of the washer almost feels like taking them out of a shopping bag.


    Benefits

    • Protects clothes by preventing soil from penetrating deeply into the fabric.
    • Offers a top-performing soil-release effect in the next wash.
    • Helps remove stains in the first wash.
    • Maintains whiteness of clothes even after multiple washes.
    • The soil-release performance allows a reduction in washing temperature, detergent concentration and mechanical action, improving fabric protection even more.

    OUR TOP-PERFORMING TEXCARE® GOES GREEN!​

    Consumers look more and more for green laundry products in the market, but what is the real challenge that the producers face here?

And that is exactly where TexCare® SRN 260 Life can help.
