(Cetyl Trimethyl Ammonium Chloride)
 

The line HESTERQUAT 16 (Cetyl Trimethyl Ammonium Chloride) are quaternary ammonium salts and cationic surfactants being, act as antistatic agents, emulsifiers and detergents.

Widely used in creams and hair conditioners formulations, as well as in base formulations for textile softeners.

Cosmetics industry
Being a cationic surfactant, with anti-static property, the cosmetics industry, the HESTERQUAT 16 line (cetyl trimethyl ammonium chloride), is widely used in the formulations of creams and hair conditioners.
Allows the temporary change of the hair structure, making them easier to model, for reducing and controlling the volume of the wires, reduces frizz, and provides brightness and motion, giving a natural look to the hair.

Mechanism of action
The hair is basically constituted by alpha-keratin protein, which corresponds to 80 to 90% by weight of the hair mass. The Centrimônio chloride has the power to promote the smoothing, the relaxation of clusters and still has assets that help in repairing the damage caused by other chemical processes in one step, making it possible to model the hair.
The compound has hydrolyzed proteins due to its low molecular weight exhibit more easily penetrate the hair shaft through the cuticle, providing higher brightness, reset, conditioning, strength and resistance to fiber that may already be impaired by other chemical processes.

Bases manufacturing textile softeners
The HESTERQUAT 16 line is likewise widely used in their formulations, as being one cationic surfactant with anti-static property, has a great power to soften and restore the damaged fibers, and being an organic compound is biodegradable and is not considered harmful the environment, therefore, ecologically correct.

Pharmaceutical industry
In the applications mentioned, the line 16 is HESTERQUAT quaternary most suitable for obtaining antibiotics in the pharmaceutical industry.

Industry disinfectants and similar
The HESTERQUAT Line 16 is also often used in combination with HESTERQUAT BKC line, in disinfectants and similar formulations
