The new generation additive contains virtually no VOCs (depending on regional guidelines and measuring method).
This advantage means that the product requires minimal special labeling and is, therefore, easier to use, process, and store.
SURFYNOL 104 Z is a silicone-free additive, developed in response to the increasingly tight regulatory requirements.
As with the previous generation, the new additive is also suitable for applications requiring food contact compliance; it meets FDA and Swiss A requirements.
SURFYNOL 104 Z defoams, it wets, it improves leveling and it has no negative impact on the formulation. As required, the product can be used at any stage of the formulation process: in the mill base, the let-down, in production or during subsequent quality control.
SURFYNOL 104 Z is a multi-functional gemini surfactant, which performs a balancing act between dynamic wetting and molecular defoaming. It contains a 50% active substance. The new additive is HAPs-free and helps formulators to transition more easily from solvent-borne to waterborne systems.
