ROSULfan E is an anionic, low-foaming surfactant of the alkyl sulphates group. The product is an aqueous solution of the sodium salt of 2-ethylhexyl sulphate.
ROSULfan E is offered in the form of a clear, colourless to pale yellow liquid with a Hazen scale colour maximum value of about 150.
The active substance content in the solution ranges from 38% to 42%. The product is characterised by low viscosity. At 20°C, its density is approximately 1.1 g / mL.
ROSULfan E is excellently soluble in water. It also displays good solubility in low aliphatic alcohols. The product is a specialised anionic surfactant, combining several unique features, the synergy of which is extremely important to obtain the desired features of the final formulations.
ROSULfan E primarily has low foaming properties, very good wetting properties and is highly resistant to alkaline environments. A very important advantage of this choice is the low gelation tendency in electrolyte solutions. This eliminates problems associated with a local increase in viscosity, e.g. in dispensing systems.
ROSULfan E has excellent stability in alkaline and acidic environments, which makes it perfect for use in many industrial formulations. The product is successfully applied in the production of industrial and domestic highly alkaline cleaning agents and acidic preparations used for cleaning metal.
The product is also used in the textile industry as a wetting agent in cotton bleaching processes and during the mercerisation process. Due to the high resistance to alkalis and low foaming properties, it is a widely used component of professional preparations in the industrial and institutional cleaning segments.
The product significantly improves the flow of working solutions of cleaning formulations on hard surfaces during the cleaning process. ROSULfan E also acts as a wetting and cleaning agent in the photographic industry, offset printing and in formulations for electroplating.
ROSULfan E can also be used as an effective wetting agent in alkaline solutions intended for chemical peeling of vegetables and fruits.
The surfactant complies with the biodegradability criteria defined in
Regulation (EC) No. 648/2004 on detergents. Biodegradable product according to the OECD criteria.
