ROKwinol 80 is a nonionic surfactant based on natural raw material. It is an ethoxylated sorbitan monooleate derivative called INCI Polysorbate 80. The product can be in liquid form or semi-liquid yellow to brown paste. Solidification in the temperature range 24-28°C. It dissolves well in water, lower aliphatic alcohols and benzene. It is a non-scheduled substance, according to the CLP regulation. It is biodegradable in the natural environment.

Due to the specific chemical structure ROKwinol 80 has high emulsifying capacity. It creates stable O/W emulsions. These features contribute to the fact that it is a product willingly chosen by formulators in both industry and cosmetics.

It is used as an emulsifier for pesticide formulations, mainly for EC, SL, EW, ME, WP and WG formulations.

ROKwinol 80 acts as an emulsifier in explosives in the form of emulsions. In the textile industry, it is used as a softening agent, eliminates static electrostatics, improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the dyeing process.

ROKwinol 80 is used in cosmetics. It acts as a mild detergent in cleaning products, wetting agent, solubilizer and stabilizer of essential oils. It is used in the production of creams, body lotions, facial lotions, shampoos, cleansing gels, cleansing oils, anti-hair loss products, and sparkling bath balls. Used in the production of air fresheners, deodorants without alcohol, and other cosmetic products. Its emulsifying properties work well in cooling fluids containing conventional base oils and in flame retardant hydraulic fluids, as well as in drilling fluids.
