DEHYDOL 980 is intended for use in all kinds of household and institutional cleaners. In addition, DEHYDOL 980 is suited for use as a substitute for nonylphenol ethoxylates in many cleaners. DEHYDOL 980 is a nonionic detergent raw material with marked wetting and emulsifying power. Owing to these properties, DEHYDOL 980 is a universally usable surfactant raw material. DEHYDOL 980 dissolves almost spontaneously in cold and warm water. The gel phase commonly observed with nonionic surfactants when they are diluted with water is only slightly noticeable. Clear, colourless liquid.
