Alfa Chemistry: Polymer Surfactants Have Exceptional Properties

With broad use in the manufacture of cleaning, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and food products, the significance of polymer surfactants can never be neglected. In a recent statement, Alfa Chemistry announced the supply of a wide range of polymer surfactants for potential uses in both scientific research and industrial manufacturing.

Polymer surfactant is a surfactant that consists of polymer both for head and tail groups. They might be a block copolymer or graft copolymer. The polymer surfactant also forms micelles in solution above CMC.

“Polymeric surfactants are specially designed for the preparation of highly concentrated suspensions and emulsions. The use of such surfactants will greatly enhance long-term stability,” says one of the senior scientists from Alfa Chemistry. “In addition, polymeric surfactants can also serve as an interesting alternative to increase the efficiency of enhanced oil recovery processes. Of course, the potential application of polymeric surfactants is far more than the above mentioned.”

In the manufacturing process of polymeric surfactants, a large number of factors should be taken into consideration. For example, the structure and composition of polymeric surfactants are essential deciding factors to determine their surface activity and rheological behavior in aqueous solutions. Moreover, temperature, salts content, and flow velocity will significantly affect their physical properties.

With rich manufacturing experience and many years of expertise, Alfa Chemistry is capable of providing the highest quality polymeric surfactants. Some of them are listed below:

6-o-maltosyl-beta-cyclodextrin (cas 104723-60-6), beta-cyclodextrin, 2-hydroxypropyl ether (cas 128446-35-5), polyaluminium chloride (cas 1327-41-9), butyl methacrylate, methyl methacrylate, dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate polymer (cas 24938-16-7), poly(p-vinylphenol) (cas 24979-70-2), polyethylene terephthalate (cas 25038-59-9), ethylene, vinyl alcohol copolymer (cas 25067-34-9), poly(sodium methacrylate) (cas 25086-62-8), allyl alcohol, ethenylbenzene copolymer (cas 25119-62-4), acrylates copolymer (cas 25133-97-5), maleic acid-methyl vinyl ether copolymer (cas 25153-40-6), vinyl acetate vinyl alcohol polymer (cas 25213-24-5), formaldehyde, polymer with benzenamine (cas 25214-70-4), potassium polyacrylate (cas 25608-12-2), 2-butenoic acid, polymer with ethenyl acetate (cas 25609-89-6), acrylic acid, vinyl chloride copolymer (cas 25702-80-1) and more.
