Lanphos TEP 4K is a phosphate ester crafted through polyphosphoric acid, primarily yielding a mono-ester product. Its notable advantage over conventional anionics lies in its outstanding stability in high concentrations of acid, alkali, and electrolyte. Supplied in its neutral form as a potassium salt, Lanphos TEP 4K acts as a hydrotrope, facilitating the solubilization of both anionic and nonionic surfactants into high concentrations of electrolyte.

Chemical Name: Aryl Ether Phosphate (Potassium Salt)

Functions: Surfactant, Surfactant (Anionic)
