SULFOROKAnol L327/1 is an anionic surfactant from the group of alkyloterosulphates, based on natural alcohol (INCI name: Sodium Laureth Sulphate). The product has the consistency of a low-viscosity, clear, colourless to pale yellow liquid. The commercial product contains 27-29% of the active substance. The anionic character of the product influences the synergistic effect with non-ionic, amphoteric and anionic surfactants in final formulations.
SULFOROKAnol L327/1 is characterized by a very low critical micellization concentration (cmc), therefore even a small concentration in the formulation ensures its effective action. The product has good washing, emulsifying and foaming properties, generating high and stable foams. These numerous advantages make the product perfect for Personal Care formulas and detergent formulas. The surfactant complies with the biodegradability criteria laid down in Regulation (EC) No. 648/2004 on detergents.
The above-average foaming and wetting properties, as well as resistance to acidic and alkaline environments make SULFOROKAnol L327/1 an effective component of formulations for cleaning hard surfaces and car care products. It is also used in extinguishing agents.
SULFOROKAnol L327/1 is also used in the construction industry as a component of air-entraining admixtures for concrete and cement mortars. The use of the product in this application increases the resistance of concrete, while in the ready-to-use admixtures the product works in synergy with foam stabilizers, humectants or wetting agents. SULFOROKAnol L327/1 is used during the production process of so-called unstable foams for reducing the weight of gypsum-cardboard panels by introducing air into the gypsum mixture.
Thanks to its strong detergency properties, the product is used as a component of tanning formulations mainly for washing and degreasing leather. Emulsifying properties and effective reduction of surface tension enable the use of the product in emulsion polymerization processes, mainly for the production of aqueous polymer dispersions (e.g. acrylic or vinyl acetate), ensuring proper emulsification of monomers in the reaction mixture.
Surface-active properties of SULFOROKAnol L327/1 are also applied in formulations dedicated to metalworking.
