Storage, Stability and Handling Information

T-Det “N” nonionic surfactants are stable non-corrosive products in an anhydrous state. They can be stored in plain steel tanks with piping, valves, and pumps of the same metal. Aqueous solutions of T-Det “N” surfactants must be stored in stainless steel or plastic lined tanks. The nonylphenol- ethylene oxide adducts are slightly hydroscopic. Where necessary, guard against atmospheric moisture pick-up, an inert gas blanket may be used.
