Linear Alcohol Ethoxylates

Air Products produces one of the industry’s most complete lines of ethoxylated alcohols and alkoxylated nonionic surfactants. The Tomadol® ethoxylates include both synthetic and naturally-derived linear primary alcohols. These products are suitable for a wide variety of applications, provide high performance in most detergent formulations, are physiologically mild to the skin, and are easy to color and perfume. The Nonidet™ surfactants are nonionic surfactants that incorporate both ethylene oxide and propylene oxide to provide a balance of low foam and good detergency.  In addition to our full product offering, our experienced technical professional can help you choose the right product for your needs.
