evonik-surfactantEvonik’s Coating Additives business line has launched SURFYNOL® 104 Z, a multifunctional surfactant providing combined dynamic wetting and molecular defoaming in waterborne coatings and inks.

Low-VOC Additive Meets FDA and Swiss A Requirements

The new generation additive is just as effective as its predecessor (SURFYNOL® 104) with one crucial benefit: It contains virtually no VOCs (depending on regional guidelines and measuring method). This significant 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 as it meets FDA and Swiss A requirements. Besides the lower VOC content and improved product labeling, 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.

Applications of SURFYNOL® 104 Z

SURFYNOL® 104 Z is a multifunctional surfactant, which performs a balancing act between dynamic wetting and molecular defoaming. It contains 50 percent active substance. The new additive is HAPs-free and helps formulators to transition more easily from solvent-borne to waterborne systems.
