Our complete range of TOMADOL® Ethoxylated Alcohol surfactants are made from linear synthetic alcohols and are named to indicate the structure of the surfactant.

TOMADOL® Ethoxylates are colorless and range from liquids to low melting point solids of pasty consistency. They are excellent wetting agents, emulsifiers, and detergents, and are moderate foamers. The base-catalyzed condensation reaction of ethylene oxide (EO) with an alcohol gives a mixture of ethylene oxide adducts of varying chain length. The composition of the mixture follows a standard distribution curve, peaked at the average EO content.
