Household, Industrial and Institutional

Do you need to formulate hard surface cleaners that are environmentally friendly, non-toxic and produce little or no VOCs? We manufacture a variety of nonionic and cationic surfactants, most of which are based on vegetable-derived ingredients. Our synthesis and manufacturing expertise covers a wide range of chemistries and our toll manufacturing and blending capabilities means that we just might be able to be a one-stop shop for your next project.

Why use nonionic surfactants?

Nonionics are often used with anionic surfactants. They can be used to make detergents for household and industrial use as well as hard surface cleaners. Nonionics tend to be more surface active and are more effective emulsifiers compared to anionics at similar concentrations. They are better at removing oils and organic material compared to anionic surfactants but they are less soluble in hot water. Nonionic surfactants generate less foam and are more stable in hard water because they don't react with calcium and magnesium ions in the way that anionics do. Nonionic surfactants can be more effective in cold water. This is particularly useful for detergents used on sensitive fabrics or where hot water may be in short supply. 

Acconon® Nonionic Surfactants

ABITEC Corporation has more than 50 years experience manufacturing nonionic surfactants at our plant in Janesville, WI where we produce a variety of alkoxylates that are suitable for detergents and hard surface cleaners. We can help choose the nonionic surfactant that provides the right combination of wettability and detergency for household and industrial applications.
