HYDROPALAT® WE 3966 is an effective, low-foaming, non-ionic surfactant with block copolymer technology based on polyethylene glycol and polypropylene glycol. Due to its non-ionic character, it is miscible with anionic, cationic, and other non-ionic surfactants. It is compatible with soluble polyanionic substances such as our DISPEX® types.
