MERPOL® SE is a non-ionic surfactant that can be used as a wetting agent or emulsifier at a low level of use when low foaming is required.
Product Overview
MERPOL® SE is a powerful wetting agent that is best utilized when detergency is not required. It is highly efficient at a use level of 0.01-0.1%. MERPOL® SE is used as a wetting agent for textiles, asbestos, paper processing, and cleaners for paper machine felts.
