ROKAnol T18 Non-ionic surfactant, emulsifier, 200 kg barrel
About product

ROKAnol T18 belongs to the group of non-ionic surfactants of the type of ethoxylated fatty alcohols with the INCI name: Ceteareth-18. The product is based on high molecular weight alcohol of natural origin. It is produced in the form of a white wax.

ROKAnol T18 has great emulsifying and dispersing properties. The hydrophilic-lipophilic balance (HLB) of the product is 16.3, which puts it in the range of hydrophilic emulsifiers. The product is very soluble in water. At room temperature, the product is in the form of a solid, therefore it is recommended to use hot water to speed up the process of dissolving the product.

Product available on request. Before placing an order, please confirm the delivery date.

This surfactant has a wide range of applications, mainly as an oil-in-water (O/W) emulsifier. The product can be used in cosmetic emulsions (e.g. hair conditioners, balms) and color cosmetics (hair dyes and color face and body cosmetics). In industrial applications, it is used as an emulsifier in the preparation of soluble oils, textile finishes, anti-foaming emulsions or hydraulic fluids. The product has the ability to emulsify mineral oils and mineral spirits, kerosene, xylene, vegetable and animal fats, as well as paraffin and waxes.

The product is usually used together with emulsifiers with lower HLB values ​​(e.g. with ROKAnol T6 or T10), which improves the stability of the created emulsions. ROKAnol T18 is also resistant to hard water and electrolytes while being sensitive to pH changes.

Product advantages:

  • dispersing and emulsifying properties,
