Air ProductsSurfynol 107L surfactant is a liquid, nonionic wetting agent and molecular defoamer based on proprietary high-performance Gemini chemistry. Surfynol 107L surfactant contains no added alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEs), silicones, or fluorosurfactants, and is suitable for low- and zero-VOC formulations. This unique chemistry offers a range of surface active performance benefits, is nonfoaming, and will disrupt the foam stabilization properties of other formulation components, providing defect-free defoaming and deaerating benefits.

“With the launch of Surfynol 107L, we continue to expand our molecular defoamer product line so that we are able to offer formulators a wide variety of options to address their foam control and surface wetting needs,” said Debbie Anderson, Americas business manager, Additives, for Air Products. “This new product provides zero-foam dynamic wetting and defect-free foam control in low-VOC coating, ink and adhesive formulations,” added Anderson.

Air Products’ Jim Reader, lead chemist in Additives Americas, is presenting a paper discussing new superwetting surfactants for coatings applications at ABRAFATI. His paper will be presented on Thursday, October 15, in the ABRAFATI Auditorium 4. Marcelo Rufo, Additives business manager, is giving a presentation titled “Global Environmental Regulations Drive New Technologies in Epoxy Coatings” on Wednesday, October 14, at 1:45 p.m. in Auditorium 6.
