The Role of ABA Surfactant Types in Waterborne Formulations

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A major challenge within the coating industry is to formulate more environmentally acceptable end products that comply with increasingly restrictive governmental regulations on volatile organic compounds.  Application, performance, and formulating challenges include wetting over low energy surfaces, foam, water sensitivity, rheology, and flow and leveling.
This presentation will review the chemistry, theory, and application of various surfactant types with an emphasis on ABA structured surfactants for waterborne applications. Topics covered will compare the structures and behavior of both nonionic and ionic surfactants.
