Fatty alcohol polyoxyethylene ether (AEO), also known as polyoxyethylene fatty alcohol ether. It is a kind of non-ionic surfactant with rapid development and large consumption. This type of surfactant is an ether formed by condensation of polyethylene glycol (PEG) and fatty alcohol. It is expressed by the following general formula: RO (CH2CH2O) NH, where n is the degree of polymerization. There are different varieties due to the different degree of polymerization of polyethylene glycol and the types of fatty alcohol.
The main uses are as follows:
1. Washing industry: as a non-ionic surfactant, it has the functions of emulsification, foaming and decontamination. It is the main active ingredient of hand sanitizer, detergent, shower gel, washing powder, detergent and metal cleaner. But it is not resistant to strong alkali.
2. Textile printing and dyeing industry: as textile printing and dyeing auxiliaries, it plays an emulsifying role: emulsified silicone oil penetrant, leveling agent and polypropylene finishing agent
3. Papermaking industry: as deinking agent, blanket detergent and resin remover.
4. Others such as pesticide emulsifier, crude oil demulsifier, lubricating oil emulsifier, etc
AEO3 (moa3) can be used as water in oil emulsifier, which is the main raw material of fatty alcohol polyoxyethylene ether sulfate (AES).
Aeo7 can be used as degreaser and detergent.
AEO9 is mainly used in wool detergent, degreaser for wool textile industry, fabric detergent and active component of liquid detergent,
It is generally used as emulsifier in industry.
It can be widely used in emulsification, wetting, auxiliary dyeing, diffusion, washing and so on. It has excellent biodegradability and low temperature performance. It can be used in powder formulation and liquid detergent formulation.
