SIMULSOL™ SL 826 E

Alkyl polyglucoside with solubilizing and foaming properties

SIMULSOLTM SL 826 E is a non-ionic and non-ethoxylated surfactant prepared from glucose and C8 - C16 fatty alcohols. Alkyl polyglucosides’ similarity with natural compounds leads to very favourable toxicological and eco-toxicological behaviour.
SIMULSOLTM SL 826 E is a foaming and solubilizing alkyl polyglucoside with detergent properties.

Instruction for use

SIMULSOLTM SL 826 E is supplied in liquid form and is easy to handle.
SIMULSOLTM SL 826 E might crystallize when stored for an extended period in the cold. Heating at 50ºC and homogenizing will revert the product to its liquid state. This process is fully reversible.

SOLAGUM™

The SOLAGUM™ range is a family of anionic polymers with outstanding emulsifying properties that only require stir-in for instant thickening at room temperature.
SOLAGUM™ are polymers based on HSD (Hydro Swelling Droplets); they invert and swell when added to water or an appropriate blend of solvents.
