Sodium Laureth-3 Sulphate (Sodium Laureth-3 Sulfate)
Synonym: Sodium lauryl ether sulphate
Manufactured using a natural C12-14 alcohol + 3EO which is sulphated and then neutralised to form a sodium salt.
Does not show a loss of detergency in brine or hard water.
The good solubility characteristics make them especially useful for use in alkaline liquid formulations
Excellent foaming agent
Show a pronounced thickening with the addition of sodium chloride to a dilute solution.
Compatibility with aqueous ions
Stable to hard water and has excellent lime soap dispersing properties, due to the calcium salt being soluble.
Chemical and temperature stability
Prone to hydrolysis in aqueous solution at acid pH and high temperatures (not suitable for use above 50°C)
Kemsurf ESD is used as a foam stabiliser and detergent in dish-washing liquids.
A major component of low temperature or low phosphate-content heavy-duty fabric laundry liquids and powders.
Hard surface cleaners
Oil field chemicals
Used as foaming agents in foam drilling where tolerance to salt and hard water is important.
Gypsum board production
Foaming agent with tolerance to high concentrations of calcium ions.
