Exxal higher alcohols - the science of helping you succeed

Exxal™ 1315 linear efficient (LE) alcohol

Exxal 1315 LE is our latest highly linear alcohol, offering the benefits of slight branching.

Exxal 1315 LE can help surfactant producers address challenges such as:

  • Positioning their end-product portfolio strategically in highly competitive markets and applications, such as Household, Industrial and Institutional.
  • Meeting their customers’ desire to claim sustainability benefits such as biodegradability* on their end-product labeling.
