Wetting & Leveling Fluorosurfactants
Wetting & Leveling Fluorosurfactants

Chemguard high-performance water- and solvent-based fluorosurfactants have extensive industrial and manufacturing applications. Available as foaming and low-foaming agents, Chemguard fluorosurfactants are soluble in polar solvents (S-554-100 and S-550-100 for non-polar formulations). We manufacture all types of fluorosurfactants: amphoteric, anionic, cationic, and nonionic. With surfactant and chemical properties far exceeding non-fluorinated surfactants, our fluorosurfactants provide low surface tension, high wetting, and excellent thermostability at concentrations as low as 50-1000 parts per million (0.005-0.100%).

NOTE: See Fire Suppression for foams, equipment, and systems used in fire-fighting applications.

Chemguard offers the most extensive line of fluorosurfactants for formulating all categories of fire-fighting foam products in the market today. These include aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF), alcohol-resistant aqueous film-forming foam (AR-AFFF), and protein foams. 

Chemguard's heat-stable fire-fighting foam fluorosurfactants produce very dense, highly stable foam and exhibit outstanding fire-fighting properties. Low concentrations of fluorosurfactants can be used in conventional formulations, reducing the total release into the environment when used in fighting fires.  These telomer-based products are the safest fluorosurfactants on the market today.

Chemguard's technical staff can help you optimize formulations to assist you in obtaining approvals from regulatory agencies worldwide.
