T-Det® N 50 is an anhydrous liquid nonionic surface-active agent produced by the reaction of nonylphenol with 50 moles of ethylene oxide. It is used as a detergent and wetting agent in systems using temperatures in the boiling range. Its nonionic structure makes it compatible with anionic surfactants and it is stable in the presence of acids, bases, and salts.

CAS Number: 127087-87-0

Functions: Emulsifier, Surfactant, Surfactant (Nonionic), Wetting Agent

Certifications & Compliance: California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010, Coalition of Northeastern Governors (CONEG), Directive 2002/95/EC, EPA Registered, RoHS Compliant

Storage & Handling

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 pickup, an inert gas blanket may be used.
  • T-Det N-50 has a freezing point of approximately 120 F; therefore, storage facilities should be equipped with heating coils for ease of handling.
  • 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.
