Chembetaine™ CAS surfactant

Chembetaine™ CAS surfactant is a coconut-derived, 50% solids sultaine. It has excellent foaming properties and is recommended for use in formulations of heavy-duty, industrial alkaline cleaners such as steam cleaning compounds, wax removers, and hard surface cleaners. It also can function as a wetting agent in the acid pickling of metals and as a detergent in acid cleaners with scale and lime soap dispersing properties. Its foaming properties make it effective in hydraulic fracturing and drilling applications.

Features and Benefits

  • Does not precipitate from solution at an isoelectric pH value and is equally soluble in soft water, hard water, brine, and concentrated electrolyte solutions
  • Good electrolyte tolerance
  • Good foam stability
  • Naturally derived
  • Produces stable and copious foam
  • Provides the synergistic effects of increased foam and stability in combination with alkyl sulfates, alkyl ether sulfates, alkyl-benzene sulfonates and soaps
  • Stable in high temperature and pressure systems
