Ivanhoe manufactures non-ionic surfactants that function as dispersants and stabilizers for water-based food grade colorants and oil-based liquid colorants for plastics. Our surfactants are produced in our FSSC 22000 certified allergen-free GSFI food facility, certified Kosher and Halal, and meet all of the applicable FDA regulations required for use.

Glycerol and Polyglycerol Esters
Glycerol and polyglycerol esters are non-ionic surfactants derived from plant sources that can be designed to have a wide range of HLBs. Glycerol and polyglycerol esters with low HLBs are used as co-dispersants for oil-based pigment dispersions, while polyglycerol esters in the higher HLB range can replace polysorbates in both aqueous and oil-based dispersions.
Product Description Appearance HLB
I-MUL PGO 34K Triglycerol Tetraoleate Liquid 1.0
I-MUL PGO 1010K Decaglycerol Decaoleate Liquid 2.5

Sorbitan Esters
Sorbitan esters are low HLB non-ionic surfactants derived from plant sources. Sorbitan esters are used as co-dispersant with other surfactants like polysorbates to form stable oil-based pigment dispersions.
Product Description Appearance HLB
S-I 85K Sorbitan Trioleate Liquid 1.8
S-I 83 Sorbitan Sesqueoelate Liquid 3.7
S-I 90 Sorbitan Monotallate Liquid 4.3
S-I 80K Sorbitan Monooleate Liquid 4.3

Polysorbates
Polysorbates are high HLB non-ionic surfactants made via the ethoxylation of sorbitan esters. Polysorbates are often combined with glycerol esters to stabilize aqueous food grade colorants and combined with sorbitan esters to stabilize oil-based liquid colorants for plastics.
Product Description Appearance HLB
T-I 81K Polysorbate 81 Liquid 10.0
T-I 85K Polysorbate 85 Liquid 11.0
T-I 80K Polysorbate 80 Liquid 15.0
T-I 20K Polysorbate 20 Liquid 16.7

PEG Esters
PEG Esters are non-ionic surfactants made via the esterification of polyethylene glycols and fatty acids derived from plant sources. PEG Esters are used as a co-dispersant with other surfactants like polysorbates to form stable oil-based pigment dispersions.
