INCI: Poly(oxy-1,2-ethanediyl), a-undecyl-w-hydroxyProduct Category: Surfactant
TOMADOL® 1-5 is a nonionic surfactant that is great for hard surface cleaning formulations. TOMADOL 1-5 can be used as a single surfactant for cleaners given mid-range HLB. This surfactant provides excellent cleaning performance.
This product increases the emulsification performance of primary surfactants. By replacing 0.5% of the primary surfactant with this product, there is a significant improvement to the emulsification of the formula.
Evonik produces a wide variety of nonionic surfactants. The TOMADOL ethoxylates include both synthetic and plant-derived alcohols and vary in both hydrophobe and ethylene oxide chain lengths, to yield a wide range of physical and surfactant properties. They are excellent wetting agents, emulsifiers, and detergents and are moderate foamers.
