Air Products To Highlight Surface Science Expertise At ECS 2013

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Products (NYSE: APD) will highlight a number of specialty additives at next week's European Coatings Show (ECS) in Nuremberg, Germany, including surfactants, dispersants and a new line of defoamers.  

At ECS, Air Products will feature its recently introduced Airase™ Structured Siloxane Defoamer Line (SSDL™ Defoamers) comprising seven siloxane defoamers specifically designed for optimal performance in water-based formulations. These new defoamers have been designed to exhibit predictable performance relative to each other to provide formulators with a structured approach to defoamer selection. The Airase SSDL defoamers are free of hazardous air pollutant (HAP) and alkylphenol ethoxylate (APE) and do not contribute VOCs to formulations, making them ideal for applications such as paints and coatings, colorants, inks, adhesives and other industrial applications.

Air Products will also feature its Dynol™ 800 and 810 surfactants at ECS. Both Dynol 800 and 810 were engineered to eliminate defects on difficult-to-coat substrates. They can offer superior performance versus silicones and fluorosurfactants with the environmental benefit of zero APEs, VOCs, HAPs or solvents. Dynol 800 surfactant offers especially improved performance in wood and plastic coatings, while Dynol 810 surfactant enables exceptional performance in printing inks and overprint varnishes. Both products can provide premium surface tension reduction while helping to control foam and are easy to handle and formulate.

"These new products provide coatings formulators with an easy way to improve performance while significantly lowering the levels of pollutants such as HAPs and APE," said Nuria Vallespi, Specialty Additives marketing manager. "Air Products' many years of surface science expertise enable us to offer the innovative and environmentally sustainable solutions our customers look for."

Air Products' Zetasperse® 3600 dispersing additive was developed for broad utility across typical organic and carbon black pigments and has shown robust performance with globally sourced pigment grades. Designed as a multifunctional dispersant, it can not only provide exceptional pigment dispersion and stabilization, but can also be used as a grind aid for aqueous architectural coatings, colorants and inks. Zetsperse 3600 dispersing additive is an effective and cost-efficient dispersant designed to simplify formulations while reducing manufacturers' need for complex formulation optimization.

Air Products is also debuting its Surfynol® MD-610S defoamer, which is a highly effective powder defoamer designed to eliminate air entrapment in cementitious-based products for the construction industry.
