ESTISURF®

The ESTISURF product range consists of single-component surfactants and surfactant packages with multifunctional properties. 

The ESTISURF surfactants are like the ESTISOL solvents an area, where Esti Chem stands on solid ground with more than 30 years of product development, commercial production, and application technology.   

The ESTISURF product series consists of single-component surfactants and surfactant packages with multifunctional properties. It gives the formulator a choice of formulating from the single base components or using already optimized combinations of surfactants to speed up the development and reduce the time required for go-to-market.

The ESTISURF products offer the formulator multiple choices for formulating industrial cleaners with excellent technical properties and a good health & safety profile. Extensive application information is available on request. 

ESTISURF products are applied in a broad range of products:

  • In water-free cleaner concentrates to secure good emulsification of the cleaner by water-washing
  • In microemulsions in combination with ESTISOL vegetable solvents or de-aromatized hydrocarbons
  • In acidic, pH neutral, or alkaline cleaners
  • In solvent, oil & wax emulsions
  • In wetting agents & drying agents
