MERPOL® SH is a non-ionic surfactant with a medium-range cloud point of 50°C. It can be used at coatings, cleaners, and lubricant formulations slightly elevated temperatures.
Product Overview
MERPOL® SH has a medium-range cloud point that makes it a highly efficient wetting agent in slightly higher temperature systems. It can be used as a wetting agent in cleaners, detergents, and lubricants for rubber part assembly at 0.5-1.0% concentration. MERPOL® SH also can be used as a detergent in continuous and jig-scouring operations.
