With extensive expertise in worsted and wool processing industries, Huntsman’s active ingredients for scouring detergents, carding lubricants and shrinkproof wetting agents are second to none. The range includes HYDRAPOL® surfactants, which are regarded as the industry standard for synthetic wool scouring detergents. HYDRAPOL® BD is a world class, high performance biodegradeable detergent that can reduce felting and replace nonyl phenol ethoxylate detergent systems. Our water-soluble carding lubricants offer excellent anti-static properties and improve fiber control during carding and combing. They also eliminate the need for post scouring and minimize the chance of interference in downstream shrink proofing and dying. Other lubricants that are widely used include HYDRAPOL ALN® and ACTIVE ALN®.
