Products Available

TERGITOL™ L-61 Surfactant
It is a nonionic surfactant, efficient foam control agent because of its low foam characteristics, inverse water solubility, high thermal and chemical stability, with good steric stabilization. It is used in foam control processes such as fermentation of monosodium glutamate, lactic and citric acids; food processing; food washing; water treatment; and metal working products. Low surface tension makes it a particularly efficient rinse aid and low foam wetting agent in auto dish detergents, industrial and institutional cleaning, and in cleaning-place (CIP) applications such as food, dairy, and brewery cleaning. It can be used in oilfield drilling and production formulations.

TERGITOL™ L-64 Surfactant
Nonionic surfactant that has good wetting ability, a high degree of detergency, and low foam characteristics. It is readily miscible in water and can be used in combination with other surfactants in a wide range of aqueous formulations. It is an exceptional high temperature foam control agent due to its inverse water solubility and low foam characteristics. It is used in such processes as fermentation, food processing, adhesives, paper processing, and metal working products. It is also used as a rinse aid, an emulsifier in latex paints, adhesives, and a component of sanitizing solutions. It provides high thermal and chemical stability with good detergency and rinseability​. It can also be used in oilfield drilling and production formulations.
