Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulfonic Acid(LABSA)

Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulfonic Acid(LABSA) is a largest volume surfactant because of its low cost, good performance; environmental friendliness. For the production of sulfonic acid, LABSA, alkaline benzene linear sulfation is usually used. Its components: linear alkyl benzene, oxygen, sulfur and citric acid. 

Sulfonic Acid-LABSA Use in:

 LABSA is a batch of organic sulfur compounds that are used in most home detergents, dishwashing detergents, detergent powder, cleaning powder, washing powders, detergent cake, liquid soap, soaps etc. LABSA, sulfonic acid compound is used as a foaming agent, cleaning agent in more formulations and toilet soaps for foaming.  it is using in detergent industries, in textile industry as a washing agent, pesticides industries to improve the quality of spray.  LABSA is not inflammable substance and can dissolve in water, but not in organic solvent.

Advantages of sulfonic Acid LABSA 96% 

Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulfonic Acid is one of the largest synthetic surfactants by volume due to its low cost and high performance. Apart from this, LABSA can be dried to a stable powder form. This chemical is biodegradable and environmentally friendly. (LABSA) Linear alkyl benzene sulfonic acid is a chemical which is colorless and have viscous properties. LABSA Linear alkyl benzene sulfonic acid mainly using in detergent formulations. It is one of the most important and cheapest surfactants in powder formulation and detergent fluids. It has excellent cleansing properties.
