             BACKGROUND
             Kemsurf ESD is a sodium neutralised alkyl ether sulphate and finds application in many areas were foaming,
             wetting and detergency are required. Kemsurf ESD has good stability in the presence of high electrolyte and
             hard water environments. Also the product is tolerant to mildly alkaline solutions at ambient temperatures, but
Surfactant




             tends to hydrolyse in acidic solutions.
             Typical application examples :
             Kemsurf ESD has a wide range of applications such as; foam stabilisers in liquid detergents; primary detergent
             and foaming agent in Industrial and Institutional cleaning formulations; general foaming agent; dispersing agent;
             emulsion polymerisation.
