  • Fluorosurfactants

    Hexafor surfactants are highly effective and efficient fluorinated surface active agents based on short perfluorinated chains. They are especially designed to provide rapid spreading, wetting and levelling performances to a broad range of water and solvent borne systems such as detergents, paints and varnishes, inks, waxes and floor polishes. The use of Hexafor surfactants allows to develop formulations to improve several properties such as:

    • Wetting
    • Emulsifying
    • Spreading
    • Foam control
    • Levelling
    • Anti-fogging
    • Anti-corrosion
    • Viscosity control

    Thanks to the their extremely low surface tension, Hexafor surfactants are more efficient than hydrocarbon and silicone surfactants and they can be used for wetting surfaces which are “impossible” to wet out. Moreover, thanks to the presence of the fluorinated chain, Hexafor surfactants are more stable (thermally and chemically) and fit for harsh and extreme conditions than hydrocarbon surfactants.The introduction of fluorinated chain in surfactants offer excellent thermal stability permitting their use in extreme conditions.
