Ωmega Surfactant 450

Ωmega Surfactant 450 – an alternative replacements for alkyl phenol ethoxylate (NPE).

Ωmega Surfactant 450 is a performance product that is designed as drop in replacements for Nonylphenol 9EO and Nonylphenol 10EO surfactants.
Ωmega Surfactant 450 has excellent biodegradability and low to moderate acute oral and dermal toxicity. Their irritancy potential is similar to materials derived from coconut alcohols.

Ωmega Surfactant 450 versus NPE Biodegradability
What separates environmentally acceptable surfactants from those that are environmentally unacceptable, is the capability of that surfactant to biodegrade during its residence time in the waste treatment process. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has published a number of laboratory-based guideline tests to screen chemicals for their biodegradability (40 CFR, Parts 796-3100 to 796-3360, 7-1-91 edition).

Ωmega Surfactant 450 has been shown to be readily biodegradable when subjected to these tests. A product which is readily biodegradable falls into the most biodegradable classification as defined by EPA.
