STEPOSOL® MET-10U

STEPOSOL MET-10U utilizes the cleaning properties of a surfactant to outperform many common solvents. It fulfills the role of both a low HLB surfactant and a powerful solvent, which allows it to be highly effective against a broad range of soils. STEPOSOL MET-10U can be used in formulations ranging from pH 3–12 while achieving viscosities from water-thin to gel. This metathesis-derived, nonionic surfactant is an unsaturated, short-chain amide resulting from Stepan’s collaboration with Elevance Renewable Sciences and furthers Stepan’s effort to deliver renewable, naturally-derived products to the market. With a Kauri-Butanol value greater than 1000, STEPOSOL MET-10U provides superior cleaning performance and is environmentally friendly due to low vapor pressure, high boiling point, and Biorenewable Carbon Index (BCI) of 75%.
