TOMADOL® 45-13 is a nonionic surfactant with a low critical micelle concentration (CMC) that provides emulsion at low concentrations. TOMADOL 45-13 low water solubility is ideal for pre-spotting laundry applications and solid detergents.
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 45-13
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 45-13.
