Physical Property Comparison

All the TRITON™ Alkyl Polyglucosides have very similar surface tensions and are comparable to the Glucopon® surfactants. The Draves Wetting Test illustrates the efficiency of a wetting agent based on the time required for a standard skein of cotton yarn carrying a standard weight to sink in a water solution of that wetting agent. The shorter the wetting times, at the specific concentration and temperature, the faster the cotton will be wetted by the surfactant solution.
