Exxal™ alcohols for surfactants

We provide surfactant manufacturers with Exxal branched alcohols to synthesize derivatives used in many applications. Known for their high purity, Exxal alcohols exhibit reactivity typical of higher primary alcohols. Their branched structure offers many performance advantages in ethoxylates compared to alcohols with linear (straight-chain) molecules, including:

  • Low pour point and less gel phase
  • Readily biodegradable per OECD 301F
  • Superior wetting power
  • Low foaming
  • Low aquatic toxicity supporting reduced GHS labeling
