    Alkoxylates Tech Videos

    Stepan understands the many challenges a chemist may face when formulating. Our new video series aims to help formulation chemists develop a better understanding of alkoxylated products by exploring fundamental surfactant science. Bookmark this page and check back often as we'll be expanding our series throughout the year!

Surface Tension

In general, low critical micelle concentration and low surface tension are desired to in order to maximize surfactant effectiveness and efficiency. Nonionic surfactants are relatively efficient, but their surface tension curves can vary considerably with surfactant structure. Watch the video below to learn more about how measuring surface activity can help judge a surfactant’s performance potential in water-based formulations.
