(Linear Alkyl Benzene (L.A.B

Faratech Co. is the  one of leading providers of Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB). This is widely used as one of the key active agent for producing powder detergents & liquid detergents. Generally it acts as solubilizer and coupling agent in heavy duty liquid detergent formulation


Linear Alkyl Benzene is a family of organic compounds with the formula c6h5cnh2n+1. Typically, n lies between 10 and 16, although generally supplied as a tighter cut, such as c12-c15, c12-c13 and c10-c13, for detergent use. The cnh2n+1 chain is unbranched. They are sometimes called lab's. They are mainly produced as intermediate in the production of surfactants, for use in detergent. Since the 1960s resulted in lab emerging as the dominant precursor of biodegradable detergents


Linear Alkyl Benzene is sulfonated to produce Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulfonic Acid (LABSA), Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulfonate (LAS), a biodegradable surfactant. LAS replaced branched dodecylbenzene sulfonates, which were phased out because they biodegrade more slowly
