Nonionic and Anionic Surfactants
Delivering excellent emulsification, dispersion, low foam and foam control
DOWFAX™ portfolio includes differentiated nonionic products that increase the cleaning and wetting properties of household, industrial and institutional cleaning products and selected grades are key to the development of foam control agents for challenging applications such as fermentation and process chemicals for indirect food contact. This wide range of products enable emulsification, dispersion, low foam and foam control in formulations across different industries.
DOWFAX™ surfactants are also used by formulators of paints, coatings and inks for pigment wetting, film leveling and pigment and dye stabilization, agricultural formulations, textile processing and paper manufacturing.
DOWFAX™ anionic products consists of a pair of sulfonate groups on a diphenyl oxide backbone; the hydrophobe may be a linear or branched alkyl group comprised of from six to sixteen carbons. Two sulfonates mean double charge density: a more powerful, durable and versatile surfactant molecule. DOWFAX™ anionic are the right choice for formulations containing acids, bleach or caustic. They provide excellent solubility and stability in concentrated electrolytes and are remarkably resistant to oxidative and thermal degradation. These features place DOWFAX™ range above market offering.
