ABSNa 30 - Sodium Dodecylbenzenesulfonate with CAS No. 68411-30-3 belongs to the group of anionic surfactants. The product is the sodium salt of alkyl benzene sulfonic acid. It has the form of a clear or turbid liquid. The color of a 5% solution on the Hazen scale is a maximum of 100. The product is very soluble in water and in low aliphatic alcohols. ABSNa 30 surfactant contains 30% of active substance in solution. It has a low viscosity at room temperature. This is a feature that definitely facilitates the dosing of the product, and also affects the stability of the product at low temperatures.

Surfactant ABSNa 30 - Sodium Dodecylbenzenesulfonate, thanks to its excellent wetting, detergency, emulsifying and dispersing properties, is a commonly used component of liquid washing, cleaning and laundry detergents. As a detergent, ABSNa 30 is one of the key ingredients in car shampoos.

The product shows very good resistance to hydrolysis, especially in comparison with sulfated alcohols. With the above advantages and functions , ABSNa 30 is used as an ingredient or additive in many different industrial formulations. It works perfectly, for example, as an emulsifying agent in the process of emulsion polymerization during the production of styrene-acrylic dispersions and styrene-butadiene latexes. It is also used to produce acrylic dispersions and vinyl acetate homo- and copolymers.

ABSNa 30 is a surfactant dedicated to the textile and textile industry. Here it is used to remove dyes from dye baths in machining processes. An interesting application of the product is also the production of aerated concrete, where it performs the function of activating alumina. Thanks to its properties , ABSNa 30 is one of the most important components of air-entraining admixtures for cement mortars and concretes.

The surfactant complies with the biodegradability criteria laid down in Regulation (EC) No. 648/2004 on detergents.
