Product name: Surflon S-232
Attributes/comments: Surflon S-232 is an amphoteric fluorosurfactant used in water-based paint, emulsion penetrant, cleaners and waxes applications. Surflon has a low surface tension, and when added to other substances, even in small amounts, it can significantly improve wetting and penetration properties, where hydrocarbon or silicone surfactants may fail.
Product name: Surflon S-233
Attributes/comments: Surflon S-233 is an amphoteric fluorosurfactant used in floor polish applications. Under strong alkaline conditions, Surflon S-233 can significantly reduce the surface tension of the solution. When added to other substances Surflon can impart good wettability, permeability and leveling characteristics at low dosage rates, which can reduce usage costs.

Product name: Strodex PK-85NV
Attributes/comments: Strodex PK-85NV is the newest addition to Strodex line of performance-enhancing phosphate ester surfactants from Ashland. Typically added at < 0.5% (w/w), this neutralized (K-salt) APEO- free, coester can deliver improved gloss with enhanced paint stability and color properties while contributing virtually Zero-VOC to waterbased paints and coatings.
Product name: Dextrol OC-60EP
Attributes/comments: Dextrol OC-60EP is a very low CMC, new anionic surfactant. When used in polymerization of latex resin, it has been shown to preclude water sensitivity issues, especially compared alternative anionics such as sulfates and sulfonates.
In addition, application testing in a pure acrylic, 60 PVC model paint system, the emulsion produced with EP-series surfactants demonstrated higher gloss, enhanced flow & leveling and ultimately better resistance to dirt pickup.
