Berol 609 is a nonionic surfactant specifically formulated as a replacement for nonyl phenol 9. Its versatile applications span across both industrial & institutional (I&I) cleaning and home care sectors. In I&I cleaning, Berol 609 is utilized in acid and alkaline cleaners, as well as industrial cleaners. Its liquid form ensures easy handling and fast dissolution in cold water, while its low pour point and viscosity enhance usability.

  • Berol® 609 is intended to be used as a direct drop-in for NP9 or NP10. 
  • Similar surfactant properties (cloud point equal to NP9).
  • Better handling characteristics (lower pour point and viscosity, dissolves much more quickly in cold water).
  • No need to modify other components of existing formulations to maintain performance.
