Overview

MAKON UD-8 is a 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-8 does not have a gel phase in water. It can be used for various hard surface cleaning applications for solubilization, as well as a functional additive for use as a wetting agent.
