April 16, 2014 - Designed to have superior balance of properties, including both equilibrium and dynamic wetting, system compatibility, and low foam, Dynol™ 960 and 980 solve the problems associated with coating hard-to-wet substrates. Aiding in film coalescence, siloxane-based superwetters also provide flow and leveling. Products optimize formulation performance, while minimizing reformulation time and effort.

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa. - Air Products (NYSE:APD) today introduced the latest additions to its innovative portfolio of superwetting surfactants--Dynol™ 960 and 980 superwetting surfactants--at the American Coatings Show in Atlanta, Ga.

Dynol 960 and 980 superwetting surfactants are designed to have a superior balance of properties, including both equilibrium and dynamic wetting, system compatibility, and low foam, compared to traditional siloxane surfactants. These two new siloxane-based superwetters complement Air Products' existing non-silicone superwetter surfactants, enabling the company to offer a complete portfolio of superwetting surfactants so that customers can quickly solve the problems associated with coating hard-to-wet substrates.

"With the launch of these new Dynol superwetters, we are now able to offer formulators an innovative portfolio of superwetting solutions, including products that are slioxane-based or siloxane-free, that can aid in film coalescence and provide flow and leveling," said Solomon Lemma, global business manager, Specialty Additives, for Air Products. "Whether your goal is to optimize formulation performance, minimize reformulation time and effort, keep your formulation costs under control, or find products less impactful to the environment, Air Products' technologies can provide the answers to your formulation needs."

Air Products will also highlight its Airase® 4500 defoamer, a new non-mineral oil based defoamer, designed to eliminate foam, pinholes and entrapped air in water-based inks, adhesives, and coatings without generating surface defects. Airase 4500 defoamer, along with the company's other oil defoamer offerings, supplement both Air Products' Airase SSDL™ siloxane defoamer line and its unique Surfynol® molecular defoamers to provide a complete set of defoaming solutions for formulators to meet their process and performance needs.

Air Products now also offers a complete line of high performance ZetaSperse® dispersants for resin-free and resin-containing systems, as well as a variety of performance enhancing additives for dispersion formulation. To better enable formulators in choosing the right dispersant, Air Products has developed the Formulators Assistant ZetaSperse Tool (FAZT), which allows formulators to quickly find the proper dispersant product recommendation and dispersion starting point formulation. Visit today to access this tool online or from your mobile platform.
