CocSurfactants are widely utilized in the industry as cleansers, emulsifiers, and wetting agents in a variety of applications. When it comes to surfactant chemicals that are commonly utilized in industry, ethoxylates are a popular choice. Cleaning, emulsification, wetting, and other uses are all done with ethoxylates produced from fatty alcohols, fatty acids, or amines.
In the ethoxylation process, amines such as amino acids, tallow amine, oleyl amine, cocoamine, stearyl amine, and others react with ethylene oxide in the presence of a catalyst to create fatty amine ethoxylate products. Fatty amines are nitrogen derivatives of fatty acids, olefins, and alcohols derived from natural and synthetic sources. Fatty amines are made by distilling fatty acids or reacting fatty alcohols with ammonia or primary or secondary amines to make commercially available fatty amines.
Tallow amine, coco amine, stearyl amine, and oleyl amine are all ethoxylated amines that are commonly employed in industrial operations. The ethoxylation of tallow amine produces tallow amine ethoxylate. Textile applications are best served by oleylamine ethoxylate. These products have a high surface affinity and are excellent for coating applications. Similarly, stearylamine ethoxylate and cocoamine ethoxylate are two more commonly used industrial surfactant compounds that come in a variety of forms and are utilized in a variety of industries.

AC K15K (PEG-15 cocomonium methosulfate)
This product is a cationic surfactant that comes in the form of a clear liquid. With a freezing point of around 0°C, this substance is easily soluble in water. It is easy to handle under process circumstances, as well as during storage and transportation, because of these qualities.
The antistatic properties of AC K15K (PEG-15 cocomonium methosulfate) are combined with very good water solubility or even water solubility. As a component of the formulation, the substance promotes the solubility of other chemicals. It also has waterproof capabilities. Because of these properties, the substance is commonly used as a rinse agent in automotive chemistry to speed up the drying of the automobile body and prevent streaks and stains from forming. It can also be used to make plastics, such as polyethylene or polypropylene films, due to its antistatic qualities.
AC SRK8 (Fatty amine)
This is a special cationic surfactant. The product is in the form of a transparent viscous liquid. The iodine scale is 190. It can dissolve well in hot water as well as organic solvents such as trichloroethylene, benzene and carbon tetrachloride.
