Dodecylobenzene Sulfonic Acid


ABS/1 is a product of the alkylbenzene sulfonates group, belonging to the group of anionic surfactants. In chemical terms, it is a product very similar to ABS Acid, but it is mainly directed to selected industrial applications. It is a liquid from dark brown to black with active substance content above 90%. The product is acidic and can be neutralized.

ABS/1 Acid effectively reduces surface tension and interfacial tension and is soluble in hydrocarbons (e.g. crude oil), due to which it can be used as an auxiliary component in the production of crude oil. Thanks to its detergent properties it can be used for degreasing processes in the refining industry.

The detergent and degreasing properties of ABS/1 acid are also used in the processes of exfoliation in leather production, especially in wet processes.
