Air Products’ Dynol 960 and 980 surfactants have been specifically designed to meet the growing need for high-performance waterborne coatings, inks and adhesives for low energy surfaces. These new, low-foaming optimized siloxane superwetting surfactants can provide premium equilibrium and dynamic surface tension reduction as well as improved flow and levelling for difficult to wet surfaces.
Air Products also highlighted its Airase 4500 defoamer for indirect food contact compliance. As a proprietary organic oil defoamer, Airase 4500 defoamer does not contain added mineral oils, hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), or alkyl phenol ethoxylates (APEs), making it suitable for a broad range of applications and useful for European food contact regulation compliance. In addition, Airase 4500 defoamer is designed to eliminate foam, pinholes, and entrapped air in water-based inks, adhesives, and coatings, without generating surface defects.
