Lansurf SML

Product Category: Nonionics

Sorbitan Monolaurate

Lansurf SML can be used singularly or in combination with the ester ethoxylates such as Lansurf SML20. This product is hydrophobic and finds use as an emulsifier in many waxes and creams for household applications.

 

Used in combination with the ethoxylates, Lansurf SML is used in textiles, leather treatment, silicone oils and agrochemicals. This product is also found to be readily biodegradable and would not expect to persist indefinitely in the environment.
