Dynol Superwetters

Organic & Siloxane Superwetting Surfactants

Dynol superwetters are surfactants with structures that allow them to efficiently adsorb and pack at interfaces, resulting in extremely low equilibrium surface tensions, fast wetting times and low contact angles on low surface energy substrates like wood, plastic, and oil-contaminated metal. The organic superwetters are excellent alternatives to silicone or fluorosurfactants, and provide extremely fast wetting rates with little or no tendency to foam.

Key Features

Dynol 360:  A high-performance nonionic superwetting and coalescing surfactant (100% active liquid).
