Ultranex ®NP Line- Nonylphenol Ethoxylates -
The ULTRANEX® NP product line is composed of surfactants resulting from the reaction of nonylphenol with ethylene oxide (EO). Depending on the number of ethylene oxide units (degree of ethoxylation), products with different values of HLB (Hydrophilic-Lipophilic Balance) are obtained, allowing the formulator to select one or more products to be used in various applications.

INCI: Nonoxynol 7
Personal care applications
The ULTRANEX® NP products are non-ionic surfactants, whose hydrophobic portion comes from nonylphenol and the hydrophilic portion, from the ethylene oxide chain. By increasing the degree of ethoxylation, the hydrophilic character of the molecule is increased, the increasing of ethoxylation degree, alters its water solubility, foaming power, wettability and detergency, allowing the formulator to use these products as emulsifiers, detergents, solubilizers, humectants and degreasers in various application.
