ROKAnol IT12W is a non-ionic surfactant of the group of ethoxylated fatty alcohols (INCI name: Isotrideceth-12). The product belongs to the ROKAnol IT series, a large group of surfactants based on isotridecyl alcohol, iso-C13. The commercial product contains about 90% of the active substance.

ROKAnol® IT12W is a clear liquid with a solidification point of about -2°C. This form facilitates its use and storage. Due to the presence of 12 ethoxylated groups, the product has high hydrophilic properties, therefore it is well soluble in water and low aliphatic alcohols. It is characterized by high cloud-point in aqueous solution within a temperature range of 78÷86°C.

ROKAnol® IT12W is used in many industrial applications, from household cleaning and washing agents to specialist preparations for cleaning various hard surfaces, in particular in degreasing compositions with high alkalinity or acidity. Examples of such products are pre-washing agents and alkaline active foams for washing of vehicles, graffiti removers, high-acid detergents for removing bathroom sediments.
