SL 826

Alkylpolyglucoside with foaming properties

SIMULSOLTM SL 826 is a non-ionic and non-ethoxylated surfactant prepared from glucose and C8 - C16 fatty alcohols.
SIMULSOLTM SL 826 is a solubilizing alkylpolygluglucoside with detergent properties.
Alkylpolyglucoside’s similarity with natural compounds leads to very favourable toxicological and ecotoxicological behaviour.
