Usage Recommendation

T-Det A26-5.25NR behaves similarly to other alcohol ethoxylates in that it has a tendency to gel on contact with water. The product will tolerate up to ~30% water before becoming an immobile gel. Adding heat while it is being agitated can minimize the gelling. It is recommended that any concentration of water added to this product be stirred/agitated with heat for an extended period to get the product in solution.

Compatibility

Due to its nonionic structure, this product is compatible with anionic and cationic surfactants and is stable in the presence of acids, bases, and salts. It should not be mixed with concentrated oxidizing or reducing agents since the mixture of these compounds with organic compounds could form a potentially explosive mixture.
