ROKAnol LK2 is a non-ionic surfactant belonging to the group of ethoxylated fatty alcohols (INCI name: Laureth-2.) The product co-creates a group of surfactants based on lauryl alcohol. It differs from ROKAnol L2 (INCI name: Laureth-2) in its reduced water content (max. 0.1%), so it is mainly used as a semi-finished product for the production of anionic surfactants from the group of lauryl ether sulphates (SLES).
