Learn more about 3M™ Fluorosurfactants

3M™ Fluorosurfactants belong to a class of coating additives which provide low surface tensions in solvent or aqueous coating systems that are best obtainable with fluorochemicals.

3M fluorosurfactants are excellent wetting, leveling and flow control agents for a variety of waterborne, solvent-borne, high-solids and radiation curable organic polymer coating systems.

3M 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, 3M fluorosurfactants tend to reduce the aqueous/organic interfacial tension and remain surface active in the organic portion of the polymer system.

For use in non-dispersive and non-emissive applications. Not for use in food contact, medical, drug, or cosmetic applications.
Features:
Fluorosurfactants are effective at very low addition levels 0.1 – 0.5%.
Advantages:
Reduces interfacial surface tension.
Benefits:
Efficiency allows for extremely low addition levels and surface tensions only achievable with a fluorosurfactant.
Typical Applications:
Waterborne, solvent-borne, high-solids and radiation curable organic polymer coating systems.
