Ceto Stearyl Alcohol Ethoxylates are biodegradable nonionic surfactants composed of ethylene oxide adduct of Ceto Stearyl Alcohol.
Ceto Stearyl Alcohol Ethoxylates are white waxy solids/ flakes, depending upon the level of ethoxylation
Ceto Stearyl Alcohol Ethoxylates up to 9 Moles are water dispersible. The high-mole ethoxylates greater than 10 moles & above usually are soluble in water & also soluble in most Polar solvents
In general, with increase in the ethylene oxide chain attached to Ceto Stearyl Alcohol hydrophobe increases the HLB value (water solubility), pour point, cloud point, density, viscosity, and flash point of the ethoxylate.
Ceto Stearyl Alcohol Ethoxylates can be used “as is” in a wide range of applications, including:
•Industrial and institutional cleaners
• Textile and leather processing
