CRISTOL product majorly comprises of:

ANIONIC SURFACTANTS

Product Description These anionic surfactants are amine salts or metal salts of alkylbenzene sulfonic acids. The alkyl chain is generally linear unless specified.
Use & Application Calcium 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.
40 CFR Exemptions 180.910/930 Alkyl (C8-C24) benzenesulfonic acid and its NH4, Ca, Mg, K, Na and Zn salts.
