Difference between APG0810 and APG1214

Alkyl polyglycosides (APGs) are compounds synthesised from glucose and fatty alcohols.
The main difference between alkyl polyglycoside 0810 and 1214 lies in their molecular structure and performance characteristics:

APG0810 is more permeable and is usually used more in industrial applications.
APG1214, in contrast, is milder and is more often used in household detergents.


In addition, APG0810 has between 8 and 10 carbon atoms in its molecular structure, whereas APG1214 may contain more carbon atoms in its molecular structure, resulting in a relatively high viscosity.

APG0810 has better foaming performance in detergent system.
APG1214 can better improve the softness of laundry after washing, especially cotton fabrics.

They have the following performance characteristics:

  • Good compounding performance, able to compound with various ionic and non-ionic surfactants to produce synergistic effect.
  • Good foaming property, rich and delicate foam.
  • Good solubility, resistant to strong alkalis and electrolytes.
  • Thickening ability, good compatibility with skin, can significantly improve the mildness of the formulation.
  • Non-toxic, non-irritating and readily biodegradable.
