ROKAnol® GT8 is a non-ionic surfactant from the group of ethoxylated fatty alcohols with a chain length of C9 - C16. The product belongs to the ROKAnol® GT series. The commercial product contains approximately 100% of the active substance. Due to its special properties, it is perfect as a substitute for ethoxylates based on C13 alcohol.

ROKAnol® GT8 is a white, cloudy liquid or paste, which solidifies at a temperature close to 8°C. At 40°C, it is a clear liquid with a light colour, i.e. 50 max. on Hazen scale. ROKAnol® GT8 has hydrophilic properties, thanks to which it dissolves well in water and in low aliphatic alcohols. It is characterized by moderate foam formation. It has a high cloud point within the temperature range of 76 ÷ 78°C, in a butyl diglycol / water solution. It can be successfully used in an oxidizing, reducing, and hard water environment.
