Chemguard Announces Launch of Short-Chain (C6)* VOC-Free Phosphate Ester Surfactant
October 21, 2009
Chemguard, a leading manufacturer of fluorosurfactant specialty chemicals, has added a short-chain (C6)* phosphate-ester fluorosurfactant free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to its product line – Chemguard S-764P.
This new, VOC-free, short-chain (C6), phosphate-ester-based product is ideal for use in VOC-free coatings, floor polishes, and inks. The surface activity of S-764P rivals competitive longer-chain perfluoro products now on the market, with no need to increase concentrations to obtain similar results (see table 1).

Chemguard’s new, VOC-free, short-chain, S-764P fluorosurfactant – which is chloride-free and available as easy-to-use liquids – provides numerous benefits in broad applications (see table 2).
