Welcome to Ethox • Formed in 1968

Ethox Specializes in the Right Products for You

You need what you need when you need it. You don’t need an approximation, and you don’t need it down the road. You need it now and you need it to be right.

It was in the hopes of meeting these expectations for the broadest range of clients that Ethox was born. Today, we have achieved those aims, providing hundreds of surface-modifying products founded on a wide array of chemistries.

Whether you have a formula and need materials for it, want someone to manufacture your product, or desire help with a custom formula, we are here to assist. Read on to learn more about what we can do for you today.


Among our wide range of services, we offer:

  • Alkoxylation, providing you with the nonionic specialty surfactants and lubricants you need
  • Esterification, another route to many specialty nonionic surfactants and lubricants
  • Phosphation, producing anionic surfactants used in applications as wide-ranging as agriculture to coatings
  • Sulfation, to convert nonionic surfactants into anionics, increasing their water solubility and power to disperse pigments or other particles
  • Quaternization, to convert nonionic surfactants into cationics, which are used in a number of textile products and other niche applications
  • Amidation, to form amides, used for their high surface activity and foam boosting properties.

Of course, these are just a few examples of how these modern processes can be used. You know best what your company needs, and our team is happy to discuss those needs with you at any time.

Custom Synthesis

Custom synthesis is tricky to get right, but at Ethox we have spent more than five decades perfecting these processes for our customers, and we’re proud to say we’re one of the most experienced providers on the market. Today, our lab and field experts work closely with our clients to find the best possible answers to problems, creating long-lasting partnerships in the process.

Do you already have a solution, but you need an expert to optimize it to make it even better? We can help. Or maybe you know what you need, but you don’t know how to get there yourself. Either way, our team can get the job done.

We specialize in chemistry for personal care applications, textiles, and emulsifiers of all sorts, but we are happy to help you no matter what field you’re in. We frequently assist customers in the following industries:

  • Cosmetics
  • Metal working
  • Lubricants
  • Pulp/Paper
  • Plastics
  • Agricultural
  • Textile

If you need something else, please just ask. Due to our active R&D pipeline, we provide an innovative portfolio of products and services, and it’s growing all the time.

We will also partner with you to make it economical, so you can cut headaches and hassle while still making a profit.

Alternatively, if you know what you want to create but don’t yet have the technical package, we’re happy to help you create it. Toll manufacturing is a service we have provided to many satisfied clients over the decades, and we would love to help you as well.
