Product Information

Ardrox 9881 is a hydrophilic type emulsifier used for the removal of the Ardrox 981x series of post-emulsifiable fluorescent penetrants (Method D). It is to be diluted in water then applied by immersion or foam-on method.

The use of Ardrox 9881 minimizes background fluorescence on part surfaces, as well as bleed out of excess penetrant from hollow parts. It is economical to use since it can be applied at 10% by volume for immersion and less than 5% for foam-on applications. Ardrox 9881 is a blend of biodegradable surface-active agents, coupling solvent and corrosion inhibitors. It is low in sulphur, halogen and alkali metal content. In addition to that, Ardrox 9881 shows an improved odor and bath stability and it is designed to meet the harshest surfactant regulations.
