3M™ Novec™ Fluorosurfactants are non-ionic polymeric fluorochemical surfactants belonging to a class of coating additives which provide low surface tensions in organic or aqueous coating systems that are best obtainable with fluorochemicals.
Novec fluorosurfactants are excellent wetting, levelling and flow control agents for a variety of waterborne, solvent-borne, high-solids and radiation curable organic polymer coating systems.
Novec fluorosurfactants are soluble and compatible with most polymers and continue to be active throughout the drying or curing process. When used in waterborne polymer systems, Novec fluorosurfactants tend to reduce the aqueous/organic interfacial tension and remain surface active in the organic portion of the polymer system.
Fluorosurfactant effective at addition levels 0.1 – 0.5%.
Reduces interfacial surface tension.
Efficiency allows for extremely low addition levels and surface tensions only achievable with a fluorosurfactant.
Waterborne, solvent-borne, high-solids and radiation curable organic polymer coating systems.
