Nonylphenol Ethoxylate

Nonylphenol ethoxylates are nonionic surfactants composed of ethylene oxide adduct of nonyl phenol. Nonylphenol ethoxylates vary in physical appearance from clear or slightly hazy, colorless liquids to white solids, depending upon the level of ethoxylation. Nonylphenol ethoxylates up to 6 moles are water dispersible. The high-mole ethoxylates greater than 7 moles & above usually are soluble in water & also soluble in most polar solvents. In general, with increase in the ethylene oxide chain attached to nonylphenol hydrophobe increases the HLB value (water solubility), pour point, cloud point, density, viscosity, and flash point of the ethoxylate. Nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs) are surfactants that have been in commerce for over 50 years. Products containing NPEs are used in many sectors, including textile processing, pulp and paper processing, paints, resins and protective coatings, oil and gas recovery, steel manufacturing, pest control products and power generation. A variety of cleaning products, degreasers and detergents are also available for institutional and domestic use. These products have numerous applications, including controlling deposits on machinery, cleaning equipment, and scouring fibres; as wetting and de-wetting agents; in dyeing and machine felt cleaning and conditioning; and in product finishing. NPEs have also been used in a wide range of consumer products, including cosmetics, cleaners, and paints. NPEn grades are used as an emulsifier in emulsion polymerization, as wax emulsifier, in pigment pastes and as stabilizer in paints and coatings. They are resistant to metal salts, offer good dispersing properties and, depending on the degree of ethoxylation, excellent wetting and surface action. As wetting agents, NPE 9 and NPE 10 are the most effective grades. The excellent emulsifying properties of a number of NPEn grades furthermore allow the preparation of stable emulsions.
