Quick Links

Kemsurf SBE acid is a high active dodecyl benzene sulphonic acid manufactured by SO3 sulphonation. This particular acid is manufactured from a narrow cut straighter chain grade detergent alkylate. As a result of using this grade of alkylate the product is classified as readily biodegradable. Kemsurf SBE acid is an ideal raw material for the production of detergents that can be used in a number of application areas such as liquid dish washing and cleaning solution for both industrial and domestic use. Also the neutralised products offer excellent emulsification properties depending upon the salt produced.
