Industrial/Institutional Cleaning

Air Products supplies a full line of specialty surfactants to the industrial & institutional (I & I) cleaning industry for applications such as hard surface cleaning, laundry, vehicle care and more. We have over 40 years of experience working with cleaning formulators to find affordable ways to clean faster and more effectively while ensuring a healthy and safe environment…including meeting ever changing environmental regulations. Air Products is the world’s largest producer of ether amines and ether amine derivatives with an expertise in cationic and amphoteric surfactants. Additionally, Air Products produces one of the most complete lines of ethoxylated alcohols and alkoxylated nonionic surfactants. The Tomadol® ethoxylates include both synthetic and naturally derived linear primary alcohols. These products are suitable for a wide variety of applications, provide high performance in most detergent formulations, are physiologically mild to the skin, and are easy to color and perfume. The Nonidet® surfactants are nonionic surfactants that incorporate both ethylene oxide and propylene oxide to provide a balance of low foam and good detergency.

Additionally these surfactants have application in the mining industry. Please visit mining to find out more.

In addition, Air Products is a global supplier of nitrogen, hydrogen, and other industrial gases used for a variety of applications in the manufacture of chemical products. Please visit our Fine/Specialty Chemicals page to find out more.
