Alkoxylates Tech Videos


Stepan understands the many challenges a chemist may face when formulating. Our new video series aims to help formulation chemists develop a better understanding of alkoxylated products by exploring fundamental surfactant science.

Nonionic Surfactant Phase Behavior
Gel formation can be a challenge for formulators working with nonionic surfactants. This video describes how liquid-crystal formation can lead to the development of persistent gels and also provides some tips to help keep such gels from forming.
