Tween 80 is a non-ionic surfactant with significant resistance to electrolyte and strong hydrophilicity. It is an excellent O/W emulsifier.
The high concentration of electrolyte and the change of pH value have little influence on its emulsifying ability. It has a good emulsification
effect on vegetable oil, mineral oil, animal fat and so on.
Tween 80 is used in liquid, semi-solid and solid preparations, generally as O/W emulsifiers, solubilizers, wetting agents, dispersants and stabilizers.
Tween 80 can be used as a component of cotton fiber and viscose cord tensioning agent. Used as an emulsifier in the production of polyurethane foams.
In the food industry can be used as an ice cream emulsifier, the general amount is 0.1% butter, the general amount of oil is about 1%.
Tween 80 is used as a wetting agent to improve the wettability of the surface of pharmaceutical particles. Water-based tablets for hydrophobic purposes
allow water to easily seep in, thereby speeding up disintegration. In addition, it can increase the solubility of anti-flocculation can improve the dissolution
of drugs, suitable for drugs are hydrophobic, excipients poor water solubility, dextrin proportion is large, or due to the nature of the raw excipients themselves
caused by the larger hardness of the particles, and with sodium carboxymethyl starch disintegration is not significantly improved tablets.
