CRISTOL product majorly comprises of:

ANIONIC SURFACTANTS

Product DescriptionThese anionic surfactants are amine salts or metal salts of alkylbenzene sulfonic acids. The alkyl chain is generally linear unless specified.
Use & ApplicationCalcium salts have a generally low HLB value and are useful as emulsifiers in EC formulations. They provide excellent bloom when EC is diluted in water. Certain sodium salts are useful as wetting agents in dry and liquid formulations.
