Fatty Alcohol Ethoxylates

Venus manufactures a wide range of ethoxylates of C8 to C22 Fatty Alcohols like Lauryl Alcohol, Cetostearyl Alcohol, Oleyl Cetyl Alcohol, Behenyl Alcohol, Stearyl Behenyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, etc.

 

Fatty Alcohol Ethoxylates have many uses, primarily as surfactants in detergent formulations both, industrial & domestic. These are also used as cleaning agents, scouring agents ,wetting agents & dispersants or emulsifiers in textile formulations.

 

Also these are used as emulsifiers, solubalizers in cosmetics & health care formulations. Also some of fatty alcohol ethoxylates and its blends are used as APEO free surfactants.

Description:
Lauryl Alcohol Ethoxylates are biodegradable nonionic surfactants composed of ethylene oxide adduct of Lauryl Alcohol.
Lauryl Alcohol Ethoxylates vary in physical appearance, from clear or slightly hazy, colorless liquids to white solids, depending upon the level of ethoxylation.
In general, with increase in the ethylene oxide chain attached to the Lauryl Alcohol hydrophobe increases the HLB value (water solubility), pour point, cloud point, density, viscosity, and flash point of the ethoxylate.

 

Application:
Lauryl Alcohol Ethoxylates can be used “as is” in a wide range of applications, including:
  • Emulsifiers & Wetting Agents.
  • Industrial and institutional cleaners
  • Agricultural chemicals
  • Textile and leather processing
  • Metalworking systems

 

Lauryl Alcohol Ethoxylates can also be used in ether sulfates and ether carboxylates, Cosmetics as well as other industrial and agricultural applications.

 

Lauryl Alcohol Ethoxylates Ethoxylates can be used to make phosphate esters, which are useful as dispersants, low-foam emulsifiers, and anti-static agents in the following applications:
  • Agricultural chemicals
  • Paints
  • Polymer production
  • Paper processing
  • Textile processing
  • Metalworking fluids
