About Us

Surfactants are used as performance additives in formulations in a large number of industries, such as personal and home care, and numerous industrial applications: metal treatment, industrial cleaning, petroleum extraction, agrochemicals, etc.

Surfactants are molecules made up of two distinct particles, one with a strong affinity for oils and the other for water. When dissolved in water, they lower the surface tension of the water and increase the solubility of organic compounds.

Qingdao IRO Surfactant Co., Ltd. (IRO Surfactant), as the wholly-owned subsidiary of IRO CHEMICAL GROUP, was founded in 2004. We specialize in producing and supplying a large range of surfactants – cationic, anionic, non-ionic, and amphoteric – delivering multi-functions adapted to specific applications, including foaming effect, surface modification, cleansing, emulsion, rheology, environmental and health protection.

After nearly 10 years’ development, our production capacity of surface-active agents has reached 30,000 tons per year. The factory is equipped with advanced equipment, powerful technological force, and complete test and inspection facilities.
