Texapon N70 – Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate (SLES) 70%
Texapon N70 is a sodium laureate sulfate commonly used in medium to high viscosity clear pearlescent products and detergent products. Texapon is a highly active ether sulfate produced from a medium fatty alcohol containing an average of 2 moles of ethylene oxide with maximum control of unwanted byproducts, including odor-causing products.
What is Texapon N70?
Texapon N70 is a highly concentrated sodium lauryl ether sulfate derived from natural fatty alcohols. Texapon is particularly suitable for highly concentrated end products or when raw materials with a lower water content are required due to the high leaching content of the active ingredient. In this way, the viscosity of diluted texapon solutions with approximately 5 to 28% washing active ingredient can be easily increased to the desired amount. Its other anions include sodium laurate sulfate and sodium myrate sulfate.
SLES or Texapon N70 acts as a foaming, cleansing and moisturizing agent. Most detergent products contain 30-70% SLES. Texapon N70 is a paste that has a high viscosity and its appearance is transparent. Because this product contains salt, after diluting it, the viscosity decreases. By increasing NaCl and alkanol amides, the viscosity of this compound can be controlled. N70 type of this product is the highest concentration of SLES produced in the ethoxylation process of dodecyl alcohol.

Chemical composition of sodium dodecyl sulfate
Sodium dodecyl sulfate or sodium lauryl sulfate, sometimes written sodium lauryl sulfate, is a synthetic organic compound with the formula CH₃(CH2)₁₁SO₄Na. This molecule is an organosulfate and a salt.
Texapon 70% production
In fact, Texapon is the most common commercial product obtained from the combination of sodium, ammonium alkyl and alkyl ether sulfate. Texapon type N70 is produced from natural fatty alcohols, which process occurs with the help of ethoxylation of didecyl alcohol. which can be converted into sulfuric acid ester. The resulting substance is finally converted into sodium salt during the neutralization operation.
Application of sodium dodecyl sulfate
Sodium dodecyl sulfate, molecular biology grade (SDS), is a detergent known to denature proteins. This material is used in non-induction polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis to determine protein molecular weight.
Application of Texapon N70 or application of sodium lauryl ether sulfate 70%
- This product is also suitable as a basic surfactant for cosmetic cleaning products such as shampoos, shower gels and foam baths.

Texapon should be protected from cold and moisture. If the original container is not opened, the product can be stored for at least one year. Its expiration time is 24 months. The suitable temperature for its storage is between 10 and 30 degrees Celsius, which depends on the pH value. Store its barrels in a well-ventilated place. Texapon should be stored in a dry and cool place and away from the sun and rain.
