TAED Chemicals


The use of Mykon™ TAED (Tetraacetylethylenediamine) sourced from the world’s leading manufacturer Warwick Chemicals combined with sources of active oxygen produces peracetic acid as and when it is needed, allowing for the efficient and safe removal of many everyday stains such as coffee, tea and fruit juices at water temperatures as low as 15oC . Laundry washed with TAED based powders destroys malodours and maintains whiteness while being totally safe for colours.

Sodium Perborates

Belinka Perkemija produce a range of sodium perborates that serve as a source of active oxygen. These inorganic peroxides, which are totally odourless and water-soluble are available as Sodium Perborate Monohydrate {PBS1} (NaBO3·H2O) or Sodium Perborate Tetrahydrate {PBS4} (NaBO3·4H2O). The difference lies in the AVOX (available oxygen) with the Monohydrate at 15% AVOX (Tetrahydrate at 10% AVOX) offering improved dissolution rates at lower temperatures with additional heat stability.


Di amino stilbene type Optical Brightening Agents (OBA’s) such as DMA-X and CBS-X as well as liquid grades are sourced from leading manufacturers and are supplied into the detergent industry.
