Orcopal TX™ is a fulling agent for wool and oil/lubricant release agent for natural and synthetic fibers. In view of its chemical nature, it can be used in either soft or hard water or in an acid or alkaline media and still maintain its effectiveness. Orcopal TX™ is a blend of biodegradable linear alcohols containing various moles of ethylene oxide compounds giving optimum emulsification properties while still retaining its hydrophilic nature.  Orcopal TX™ can also be used in conjunction with a solvent where extremely high oil content is found.
