Anti-redoposition polymers for fabric care
Polycarboxylate polymers are key components in modern cleaning products. By keeping soils suspended in the wash water and preventing redeposition onto other fabrics, polycarboxylates play a crucial role in fabric care formulations. Detergent formulators today continue to look for sustainable alternatives to current synthetic polymers available in the market, and Rivertop’s technology platform opens the door for high performance polycarboxylates derived from renewable feedstocks.
Scale inhibitors for water treatment
The build-up of mineral scale in industrial water systems reduces heat transfer and restricts flow, significantly impacting operating efficiency. Polycarboxylate additives help prevent scale build-up by keeping mineral salts suspended in the water rather than depositing on system surfaces. By oxidizing natural polymers such as starch, Rivertop’s technology gives water treatment service providers the opportunity to incorporate sustainable, economical, and high performing polymers into their formulation tool kit.
