To the blending tank, add the water, caustic soda and DDBSA. At this point, the pH should be greater than 5.0 to prevent tank corrosion. If not, immediately add more caustic soda. Add the remainder of the ingredients in the order listed. The amount of EMID and SXS can be adjusted to obtain the desired viscosity. Increase EMID 6514 to increase viscosity. Increase SXS to decrease viscosity.
Adjust the batch to final pH before the dye (as an aqueous solution) is added.
Note: Be careful with caustic coda or sodium hydroxide , it is corrosive.
