Sodium Alpha-Olefin Sulfonate (AOS)
MIKEM Sodium Alpha-Olefin Sulfonate
MIKEM Sodium Alpha-Olefin Sulfonate (AOS), white or light yellow powder, is the main raw material for synthetic detergent.
It is excellent in wettability, decontamination, emulsification, foaming and foam stability. It is highly soluble in water and has strong calcium soap dispersing power. It is hard water resistant and readily biodegradable. Besides, it is gentle on the skin and has good compatibility.
Our AOS is stable under acidic conditions. It is suitable to be used as an ingredient in personal care products. Our products have been widely used in the detergent, cosmetics and daily chemicals such as washing powder, composite soap, dishwashing detergent, phosphorus-free detergent, shampoo, shower gel, facial cleanser, hand soap, etc. Besides, our AOS is also widely used in textile printing and dyeing, petrochemical, tertiary oil recovery, industrial cleaning, and other industries.
MIKEM technicians are developing more applications in other industries, such as starch processing aids, cotton mercerizing agents, wetting agents, textiles, and papermaking. Our AOS is expected to become the latest generation of synthetic detergent raw materials and will be widely used in household and industrial washing products.
