Alpha Olefin Sulfonate 40%

Alpha olefin sulfonates for a  sulfate-free product

Alpha Olefin Sulfonate 40% (AOS 40%) is a formaldehyde free solution of sodium C14-C16 alpha olefin sulfonate preserved with MCI/MI. It can be used in variety of applications due to its excellent viscosity, hard water stability, detergency, foam characteristics, and pH stability over a broad pH range. AOS 40% is a milder surfactant compared to lauryl sulfates and is used in high performing sulfate-free, shampoos, body wash, hand soap and pet care formulations. It is highly effective in unloading undesirable liquids and particulates from gas producing wells and exhibits exceptional thermal stability up to 400° F. This product is readily biodegradable.
