Tween 80 Chemical Properties,Uses,Production


Tween 80, commonly known as polysorbate 80, is a synthetic compound that is widely applied in a variety of fields, including foods, medicines, and cosmetics. In food production, it is commonly used as a defoamer for the fermenting process of some wines and as a emulsifier in ice-cream or “puddings” to keep the creamy texture without separating. Tween 80 is also extensively applied in pharmaceutical industry, where it can be found in some vaccines, vitamins and supplements. It is an effective excipient to stabilize aqueous formulations of medications for parenteral administration and to improve the consistency of gel capsules, thus to make pills disperse in the stomach. Besides, it commonly serve as a surfactant and solubilizer in the production of soaps and cosmetics, which is effective to help dissolve ingredients and make products look creamier and more attractive. In laboratory, it is occasionally  used for a test to identify the phenotype of a strain or isolate, such as mycobacteria.


Chemical Properties

Polysorbate 80 has a faint, characteristic odor and a warm, somewhat bitter taste. It is a mixture of oleate partial esters of sorbitol and sorbitol anhydrides condensed with approximately 20 mole of ethylene oxide (C2H4O) for each mole of sorbitol and its mono- and dianhydrides.

Chemical Properties

Yellow to amber liquid


Lonzest(R) SMO-20 is used as an emulsifier for textiles, personal care and industrial applications.


Lonzest(R) SMO-5 is a general purpose mid-range HLB, ethoxylated, nonionic surfactant suggested for use in textile chemicals (emulsifier, lubricant), household products and cosmetic formulations (o/w emulsifier, viscosity modifier).


Glycolube(R) AFA-1 is used as an antistat for PVC and as an antifog for PP, PE, PVC, PS.


Vinylube(R) 38 is an external lubricant for PVC bottle, film, and sheet components with excellent processing abilities and final clarity. It is also used as an antistatic agent. Product Data Sheet


Glycosperse(R) O-20 KFG is used as an emulsifier (ice cream, whipped topping) and as a solubilizing and dispersing agent in pickles and special vitamin-mineral preparations. Product Data Sheet
