ROKAnol® GT9 belongs to non-ionic surfactants (ethoxylated fatty alcohols with a chain length C9-C16, of the ROKAnol® GT series). ROKAnol® GT9 contains about 100% active substance. It is a liquid with an oil or paste consistency. The product solidifies at a temperature close to 8°C, while at a temperature above 40°C, it is a clear coloured (50 max., Pt/Co scale). ROKAnol® GT9 is hydrophilic, which is why it dissolves well in water and in low aliphatic alcohols. In addition, it has a high cloud point within 54-56°C in an aqueous solution.
