Nonionic Surfactants


We offer dedicated nonionic surfactants for the Home Care and Industrial & Institutional cleaning industry to enable choices for the required properties and functions, such as soil removal, foaming and foam control, wetting, emulsification and dispersion. The choices range from alcohol ethoxylates, alkyl polyglucosides, amine ethoxylates, emulsifiers, and solubilizers to foam suppressors and low-foaming nonionic surfactants, as well as special surfactants and unsaturated alcohol ethoxylates. 



Efficient Primary Cleaning in Laundry 

Lutensol® AO types are oxo alcohol ethoxylates that are based on predominantly linear alcohols. Depending on their degree of ethoxylation, some products in the range can be used as the principal surfactants in laundry detergents in powder form. They provide good results at all temperatures, and perform especially well on cotton fabrics and blends of cotton and synthetic fibers. Lutensol® AO 7 can especially be used for efficient primary cleaning in liquid laundry detergents and highly concentrated formats such as liquid mono dose or pods.
