PALMFONATE Sulphonated Methyl Esters (or Methyl Ester Sulfonates or MES) is KLK OLEO’s brand of anionic surfactant, which is the active cleaning ingredient in laundry detergents.
PALMFONATE’s primary use is as a substitute to the current surfactant workhorse, Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulfonate, in detergent formulas. It is made from renewable natural resources, which gives it excellent bio-degradability; improved calcium hardness tolerance during the washing process, and superior detergency.
Available in dry free-flowing powder, flakes and paste. PALMFONATE powder grade enables direct addition to detergent formulas in the post-addition step in the manufacturing process.
