Chemguard S-550 is a 50%-active short-chain perfluoro-based ethoxylated nonionic fluorosurfactant. It provides surface tensions as low as 20 dynes/cm in water at low concentrations and is also surface active in many solvents.
Chemguard Wetting & Leveling Fluorosurfactants
Chemguard high-performance water- and solvent-based fluorosurfactants have extensive industrial and manufacturing applications. Available as foaming and low-foaming agents, Chemguard fluorosurfactants are soluble in polar solvents (S-554-100 and S-550-100 for non-polar formulations). We manufacture all types of fluorosurfactants: amphoteric, anionic, cationic, and nonionic. With surfactant and chemical properties far exceeding non-fluorinated surfactants, our fluorosurfactants provide low surface tension, high wetting, and excellent thermostability at concentrations as low as 50-1000 parts per million (0.005-0.100%).
Chemguard fluorosurfactants are suitable for use in a wide range of industrial and manufacturing applications. Unparalleled in their wetting and leveling power in both water-based and solvent-borne systems, our powerful fluorosurfactants can achieve low surface tension, high wetting, and excellent thermostability at concentrations as low as 50-1,000 parts per million (0.005-0.100%). In many cases, blending non-fluorinated products with Chemguard fluorosurfactants can improve performance over either product alone. Chemguard fluorosurfactants are formulated as liquids for easy handling and dilution by production personnel.
