HUNTSMAN: Surfactants (11/10/09)

November 10, 2009

The Performance Products division of Huntsman Corp. has launched a new range of easy-to-use surfactants for high-performance wetting and dispersancy applications that, according to ISO tests, are readily biodegradable, do not require classification as dangerous goods, and demonstrate lower aquatic toxicity than conventional surfactants.

HYDRAPOL® RP series non-ionic surfactants can be sued in the formulation of domestic and industrial detergents, leather degreasers, scouring detergents, textile and paper processing chemicals, processing additives, and adhesives. They are currently manufactured at Huntsman’s plant in Botany Bay, Australia, with plans to expand elsewhere.
