Libranone: Non-Ionic Alcohol Ethoxylates

Libranone: Non-Ionic Alcohol Ethoxylates

In addition to the extensive Kolb range of speciality non-ionics surfactants, we can blend or dilute any of the products to your specific requirements and specifications.

This is particularly useful where products have high melting points and can be difficult to handle during winter conditions.

Products in this series contain a range of nonionic surfactant dilutions together with a number of formulated products for use in a wide range of industrial applications.

These products are often developed with customers to fulfil the specific requirements of their application. Since the phase-out of alkyl phenol ethoxylates (APE’s) and the move to more environmentally acceptable alternatives based on fatty alcohol ethoxylates, companies have encountered problems in the handling characteristics of these replacement products.

Fatty alcohol ethoxylates are prone to phase separation, whilst the pour points of the 100% active materials are generally higher than comparable APE based non-ionics.

In order to assist customers in the handling of these replacement products, Libra offers a range of bespoke formulations. Based on aqueous and solvent dilutions these lower the pour point and reduce the tendency to separate at low temperatures.

Libra formulated products may be used in a wide range of applications including:-

  • Detergents
  • Pigment dispersants
  • Inks and coatings
  • Agricultural formulations
  • Construction

The Libranone range includes non-ionic aqueous dilutions in the activity range between 25% to 30% and greater than 80% solutions. Other bespoke blends can include additions of various solvents to your individual specifications.
