Sasol North America Inc.'s NOVEL 1412-11 Alcohol Ethoxylate is a biodegradable, nonionic surfactant derived from linear primary ALFOL 1412 Alcohol. This ethoxylate is made using Sasol North America Inc.'s patented NOVEL catalyst technology, which yields products with lower free alcohol, PEG levels, and melting ranges when compared to the traditional base-catalyzed methods. It is essentially 100% active unless diluted with water and has the following structural formula: CH3(CH2)x (OCH2CH2)11OH where 'x' varies between 11 and 13. NOVEL 1412-11 Ethoxylate is a white solid at room temperature and is water soluble For documents specific to a region, please contact Sasol using the 'Request Document' button.

Storage & Handling

Storage and Handling

Safe handling advice

Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

Storage/Transport pressure


Load/Unload temperature

41 - 52 °C 105 - 125 °F

Storage and handling materials

Suitable: Carbon steel coated with baked phenolic. Any moisture may cause rusting of carbon steel. If product is moisture free, uncoated carbon steel tanks

Further information on storage conditions

Mix thoroughly before use. When stored in the liquid form, ethoxylates should be padded with a dry inert gas, such as nitrogen, to prevent oxygen or air from entering the tank. Prolonged storage in the presence of air or oxygen may cause product degradation. Oxidation is not expected when stored under a nitrogen atmosphere. Inert gas blanket and breathing system needed to maintain color stability. Use dry inert gas having at least -40°C (-40°F) dew point.
