Nonionic Fluorosurfactants work with difficult to wet substrates.

Press Release Summary:



Based on short chain fluoropolymer technology, APFS-70S and APFS-71S are considered to be non-PFOA contributing. Products optimize wetting and leveling characteristics of paints, inks, coatings, and polishes at low loading levels. They are especially effective on difficult-to-wet substrates such as plastics, oily or waxy surfaces, and silicone or fluoropolymer treated fabrics.

Advanced Polymer Inc. Introduces New Fluorosurfactants



Advanced Polymer, Inc. (Carlstadt, NJ) has introduced two new nonionic fluorosurfactants. Both APFS-70S and APFS-71S are designed to improve wetting and leveling characteristics of paints, inks, coatings and polishes at very low loading levels. These products will provide far greater surface tension reduction than can be achieved with either hydrocarbon or silicone based surfactants. They are especially effective on difficult to wet substrates such as plastics, oily or waxy surfaces, and silicone or fluoropolymer treated fabrics. APFS-70S and APFS-71S are based on short chain fluoropolymer technology and, as such, are considered to be non-PFOA contributing.

Advanced Polymer, Inc. (API), headquartered in Carlstadt, NJ, has been a respected provider of a variety of technically innovative specialty chemicals for almost 40 years.
