Nonionic emulsifiers for Home Care and I&I and Formulation Technologies
The Emulan® grades are emulsifiers for the preparation of stable oil-in-water and water-in-oil emulsions.
Some of the Emulan® grades are also suitable for making or stabilizing water-based dispersions; such as wax, polymer, and rubber dispersions, which are used for impregnating, lubricating, cleaning, polishing, protecting surfaces, or preventing dust. The choice of the right emulsifier is extremely important for producing a stable emulsion. Its emulsifying performance and range of applications are determined by the nature of the hydrophilic and lipophilic parts of its molecules. Oil-in-water emulsions are usually obtained if the hydrophilic character predominates and water-in-oil emulsions if the lipophilic character is predominant.
