STEOL KS-460 is a modified sodium lauryl ethoxy sulfate, designed to help eliminate the preliminary gelling stage frequently encountered on dilution of regular ethoxy sulfates. This 60% anionic surfactant contains ethanol, making it clear and fluid at room temperature. It has excellent wetting, foaming and detergency properties and can be used in liquid dishwashing detergents, laundry detergents, textile detergents, industrial cleaners as well as car and truck wash applications.
