In general, low critical micelle concentration and low surface tension are desired to in order to maximize surfactant effectiveness and efficiency. Nonionic surfactants are relatively efficient, but their surface tension curves can vary considerably with surfactant structure. Watch the video below to learn more about how measuring surface activity can help judge a surfactant’s performance potential in water-based formulations.
