TOMADOL® 25-12 is a nonionic surfactant for laundry detergent formulations. TOMADOL 25-12 has the highest water solubility and the highest cloud point for product clarity at higher temperatures. The emulsification provided helps prevent soil redeposition in laundry 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.

When making concentrates in water, use the gel curve as a guide. Other additives such as solvents, salts, and surfactants will affect the gel curve.
Performance Data of TOMADOL 25-12
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 25-12.
