Our range of Airophos phosphates can either be used alone at high concentration or formulated with other products. All our airophos products are fully miscible in water; where other components are used, when formulating detergents, the more soluble potassium based products are recommended.

Airophos are phosphate chemicals that are ‘builders’ contributing to the formulation of other products. When used in detergents these builders enhance detergency action so that less can be used of more expensive detergents with high activity. Airophos phosphates are also used to control hard waters. One important function of Airophos within detergents is to enable the cleaning components of the detergent by preventing interference by the hardness of water (mineral ions). Even in soft water, this is necessary because of calcium and magnesium ions in soils and dirt.
