Naphthalene Sulfonate

Naphthalene sulfonates can be used in a variety of applications. Nease Performance Chemicals provides naphthalene sulfonates with excellent wetting and dispersing properties. The Nease portfolio of NAXAN® naphthalene sulfonates includes products which vary in foaming tendency – from medium to low. Additionally, they offer acid and base stability, hard-water tolerance and high temperature stability.

Nease Performance Chemicals is an industry leader in high-performance naphthalene sulfonates. Several different series of naphthalene sulfonates are available to fit specific applications. Naphthalene sulfonates can be utilized in water-based cleaners such as carpet shampoos, automatic dishwashing detergents, and industrial detergents, as well as in emulsion polymerization, photographic solutions, and agricultural formulations. One grade of naphthalene sulfonate can also be used as a dispersant in many areas, which include textile chemicals, pesticide formulations, cements, emulsion polymerization, pigments and dyestuffs, and leather tanning.

We even offer an environmentally friendly product line of naphthalene sulfonates that are classified as “ultimately biodegradable” and have “low aquatic toxicity”.
