Sasol Chemicals NACOL Ethers are high-purity, biodegradable ethers derived from analogous linear alcohols. NACOL Ethers are available with chain lengths between C12 and C36. Each is compatible in a wide variety of applications, including flow assurance, cleaning applications as an alternative to d-limonene, asphaltene remediation and microemulsion formulations. Liquid NACOL Ether based on linear alcohols (C6 to C10) have high purity (> 96 %), excellent flow and low viscosity properties, are fast spreading agents, with excellent solubility and good pigment wetting properties. This is a great alternative to many silicone additives with its higher polarity than paraffins and stable pH. Solid NACOL Ether based on linear alcohols (C12 to C18) have a sharp melting profile, high latent heat, are hydrophobic, have a higher polarity than paraffins, with tunable hardness and good pigment compatibility.
Sasol Chemicals' ISOFOL Alcohols are primary, saturated alcohols with defined branching of the carbon chain. Such alcohols are chemically described as 2-alkyl-1-alkanols and also referred to as Guerbet alcohols. ISOFOL Alcohols are high purity alcohols which offer excellent oxidative and color stability. They are available with even carbon chain lengths of 12 to 28. Additionally, the twin 100% linear alkyl branches of the ISOFOL Alcohols give a lower viscosity and better biodegradability than dimer alcohols derived from oxoalcohols. The unique chemical structure of the ISOFOL Alcohols also provides good solubility and solvency. The various derivatives synthesized from ISOFOL Alcohols maintain many of the beneficial properties of the parent alcohol.
TITANEL is a synthetic wax product. It forms stable oil gels and improves the oil binding capacity with many other widely used cosmetic components and in particular with linear silicones, which are irreplaceable when it comes to innovative haircare products. This product is recommended for the formulation of creams, ointments and balms for body, lip care, and hair care. It boasts outstanding properties in all stick applications.
ISOCARB acids are derived from Sasol’s proprietary Guerbet alcohols, available with even numbered carbon chain lengths of 12, 16, 24 and 32. ISOCARB acids comprise excellent corrosion inhibitor for the metalworking fluids. They also improve the formulation stability for metalworking fluids, both for semi-synthetic and fully synthetic and may be neutralized to the salt using widely available amines.
MARLOWET ether carboxylic acids are low foaming anionic surfactants. They are based on alcohols from C9 to C18, with different alkoxylation degrees. The MARLOWET product range is a water soluble lubricant efficient in hard water and active at extreme pH. It can be used in various applications including as a corrosion inhibitor (organic anti-corrosion agent), wetting agent, defoamer, hydrophilic emulsifier for water based metalworking fluids and exhibits high lime soap dispersing properties.
NOVEL Ethoxylates, nonionic surfactants, can be used in a variety of household and industrial cleaning applications. These unique surfactants will maximize your cleaning formulations with its fast cleaning kinetics and high performance characteristics. This product range is characterized by the following useful properties: high detergency and surface activity, good hard water stability, synergistic effects with other surfactants, favorable environmental characteristics, favorable emulsifying power, chemical stability over a wide pH range and user friendly viscosity and storage behavior. These characteristics make these products an ideal raw material building block for washing powder, detergent tablets, liquid detergents, detergency boosters, all-purpose cleaners, bathroom cleaners, floor cleaners, dishwashing detergents, vehicle cleaners and other defoamer and emulsifier applications.
COSMACOL Emollients And Waxes
COSMACOL emollients and waxes are high purity lipophilic emollients based on linear and monobranched primary fatty alcohols. They show important dermatological properties and exhibit also a gentle, non-greasy feel. Due to their peculiar hydrophilic characteristics, COSMACOL products like COSMACOL OE or COSMACOL Esters exhibit also excellent spreadability. COSMACOL Esters are ideal formulation components for modern, high quality cosmetics. Due to their high incorporation ability of powders and pigments they are also recommended for make-up products.
LIPOXOL, polyethylene glycol (PEGs), are essential auxiliaries in numerous application fields like household products and also serve as intermediates for the manufacture of emulsifiers. LIPOXOL grades provide a unique property profile, combining high water solubility, lubricity and low toxicity with excellent solvent properties. Our LIPOXOL products have various functions in various industries including acting as a solvent in cleaners and a binder in detergents and tablets.
