Brief Overview
Polyoxyethylene Alkyl Ether (AEO) is a series kind of anionic surfactants and synthesized by lauryl alcohol and ethylene oxide. It is good biodegradable property has made polyoxyethylene alkyl ether is a successful substitute for nonylphenol etoxylates (NPEO) in detergent use. Polyoxyethylene alkyl ether is non-toxic, stable with acid and alkali, and soluble in water becomes worse with the rise of the temperature. Polyoxyethylene alkyl ether, as made from fatty alcohol, may react with different proportioned EO to produce versatile hydrophilic and hydrophobic surfactants, which are widely used in detergent formulations and industrial raw materials.

Cosmetics
Polyoxyethylene Lauryl Ether (OS-15) is used as an emulsifier in cosmetics to add body and texture.

Detergents
Polyoxyethylene Lauryl Ether is used as an ingredient for shampoo, for detergent, and used for production of anionic surfactant (AES). AEO7 and AEO9 are used as a wetting agent in the detergent industry.

Glass Industry
