Emulsifiers and Monomers

  • Abex® - Usable in a range of polymer systems, APE-free Abex® specialty emulsifiers are designed to improve the performance of emulsion polymers formulated for architectural and industrial coatings. 
  • Aerosol® - Aerosol® specialty surfactants are useful emulsifiers in a variety of polymer systems for acrylics. Available in biodegradable grades, Aerosol® surfactants improve performance in waterborne latex systems designed for waterborne architectural and industrial coatings, as well as waterborne adhesives. 
  • Reactsurf® - Reactsurf® is a family of APE-free reactive surfactants that functions as high-performance emulsifiers to address complex demands associated with architectural and industrial coatings and adhesives. Paints, coatings and pressure sensitive adhesives (PSAs) formulated with Reactsurf® exhibit superior functional and aesthetic benefits compared to conventional surfactants, such as reduced surfactant leaching in PSA clear label applications and dirt pick-up resistance in architectural coatings.
  • Rhodapex®Rhodapex® is a line of APE-free anionic emulsifiers for emulsion polymerization of different monomer systems. Well-suited for acrylic and styrene acrylic systems, these products offer good emulsion stability, excellent particle size control and may be suitable for food contact applications. 
  • Rhodasurf® - Syensqo's Rhodasurf® solutions are APE-free ethoxylates that provide better mechanical, chemical, freeze-thaw and pre-monomer stability for waterborne coatings formulations. 
  • Rhodoline® - Known for delivering significant performance enhancements, APE-free Rhodoline® specialty additives are beneficial for a wide range of coatings systems. These cost-effective, low odor additives come in label-free grades. They offer impressive chemical stability, in addition to anti-foam properties, improved wetting and pigment dispersion, freeze-thaw and open-time extension, and more. 
  • Sipomer® - The Sipomer® range of specialty monomers are designed to improve durability in waterborne architectural coatings, waterborne industrial coatings and waterborne adhesives. Binders made with APE-free Sipomer® specialty monomers enable better corrosion resistance, scrub resistance, scratch resistance and water resistance.  


Specialty Polymers 

  • Diofan® PVDC - Known for its outstanding adhesion and VOC-free content, Diofan® PVDC withstands the harshest of conditions. 
  • Fluorolink® PFPE - Fluorolink® PFPE products do not contain PFOA, PFOS or C8 telomere-like structures. These bifunctional products are designed as monomers for polymer modification to improve chemical and abrasion resistance, friction and stain repellency. 
  • Hylar® PVDF - Hylar® PVDF grades are sustainable solutions for various end-use applications. Weather-resistant and durable, PVDF coatings are also proven to reduce energy usage and overall costs. 
  • Hyflon® Perfluoropolymers - Hyflon® perfluoropolymers are a range of resins designed for high-temperature use and chemical resistance. Because of their durability and resistance even in harsh temperatures, these resins can be used in protective linings and coatings, release coatings and anti-stick coatings.
