AkzoNobel Surface Chemistry
AkzoNobel Surface Chemistry’s Berol® 609 is an alcohol ethoxylate blend designed to match the key properties and performance of nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs) typically used in industrial degreasing formulations (NP9 and NP10 ). At the same time, this product provides a safe, biodegradable alternative and exceeds the degreasing power of other NPE replacements. Completely water-soluble, it may be used as a direct, drop-in replacement for NP9 and NP10 in aqueous cleaning formulations.
CBI Polymers’ DeconGel™ decontaminates a broad range of surfaces, including concrete, steel, painted or unpainted, glove boxes, hoods, and casks. The gel’s binding properties trap and encapsulate a wide spectrum of radioisotopes and chemicals in a simple, no-preparation process. Users simply apply, let dry, and peel, and the dried film containing the contaminants can be disposed of according to appropriate regulations.
