Overview

MAKON UD-6 is C11 branched alcohol ethoxylate that can be used as a replacement for Tridecyl Alcohol Ethoxylates and Nonyl Phenol Ethoxylates due to its branched structure, and low gel curve. MAKON UD-6 shows good emulsification properties over a wide HLB range, and it is also a very effective degreaser. It can also be used for various hard surface cleaning applications, as a solubilizer for laundry cleaning applications, and as a functional additive providing wetting. This product meets the U.S. EPA Safer Choice Program's surfactant screen and is listed on www.cleangredients.org.
