Multifunctional Chemguard fluorosurfactants reduce surface tension of paints, improving wetting, flow, and leveling on contaminated surfaces and low-energy substrates. Fluorosurfactants can reduce foam, improve open time, improve gloss, improve anti-blocking, impart resistance to dirt pick-up at low concentrations, and reduce orange-peel effect and cratering. In many instances, the formulator can reduce or even replace multiple ingredients with one Chemguard fluorosurfactant and achieve improved results. The low concentrations required to enhance paint characteristics reduce surfactant interference with critical properties of paints.
See Wetting & Leveling Fluorosurfactants product catalog. S-761P and S-760P are recommended for anti-blocking and dirt pick-up resistance.For more information, contact specialty chemicals customer support.
