Kemsurf EM30, an APE-free alcohol ether sulfate, serves diverse purposes in various applications. It functions as a foam stabilizer in liquid detergents, a primary detergent and foaming agent in industrial and institutional cleaning formulations, a general foaming agent, a dispersing agent, and a key component in emulsion polymerization. Notably, Kemsurf EM30 is employed as a performance substitute for nonyl phenol ether sulfates in emulsion polymerization systems.
