DuPont at ECS 2013: to Showcase Multifunctional Capstone® Fluorosurfactants

Published on 2013-03-12. Author : SpecialChem

GENEVA -- Formulators of low-VOC and VOC-free architectural and decorative coatings are often faced with many challenges in resin system and formulation design. DuPont will showcase a range of multifunctional surfactants that can improve the performance of these coatings and offer potential cost savings during the European Coatings Show 19-21 March 2013, in Hall 7, stand 7-635, Nuremberg.

Lowering traditional solvent use levels results in the need for a myriad of functional additives to maintain coating performance. These additives may serve only one need, whether to minimize foam, as an open-time extender, or as a wetting agent, leveling aid, anti-block or anti-crater additive.

"DuPont research shows that incorporating new VOC-free multifunctional Capstone® fluorosurfactants at the beginning of a formulation can eliminate the use of other coating additives to create higher performing paints," said Ian Fletcher, EMEA Business and Market Manager, DuPont Surface Protection Solutions.

DuPont™ Capstone® fluorosurfactants provide multifunctional performance above and beyond what hydrocarbon and silicon surfactants offer, drastically reducing surface defects commonly encountered in VOC-free paint applications. When incorporated at the beginning stage of the formulation, the use of these multifunctional additives enables formulators to reduce the amount and number of additives, thus simplifying formulations which can lead to cost savings.
