Fluorosurfacants flourish

The control of the surface energy is a major task in high performing coating industries. During the coating process the properties like wetting and leveling are goverend by the interfacial forces within the substrate, the coating and the air. Fluorosurfactants provide low surface tension. A new class of short chain fluorinated surfactants show superior technical performance in combination with a better environmentally friendly profile.
