TOMADOL® 23-6.5 is a nonionic surfactant that is used in both hard surface cleaner formulations and laundry detergents. TOMADOL 23-6.5 can also be used as a single surfactant system given mid-range HLB. It has very low CMC and works best as a co-surfactant for laundry and hard surface cleaning applications.
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.

Performance Data of TOMADOL 23-6.5
The viscosity of a neat nonionic surfactant is an indication of its ease of pumping. In general, the lower the viscosity at a given temperature, the easier the material is to pump. This, however, depends on the individual user’s equipment. Many nonionic surfactants require heating to lower the viscosity to a level that is readily pumpable under practical conditions.
The figure below shows the decrease in viscosity with increasing temperature for TOMADOL 23-6.5
