Collection: CYTON: Surfactants

The CytoN family of surfactants are widely used as leveling, wetting and foaming agents. Surfactants lower surface tension and increase water, oil and stain repellency. Common applications for CytoN surfactants include:

Sealers: Improves water, oil and stain resistance of mineral spirits and silicone based fabric, concrete, stone and wood sealers

Inks: Improves pigment compatibility in inks, improves cylinder life in print equipment and better paint definition.

Paints: Improves wetting, pore-penetration and leveling of oil based coatings. Also reduces cratering of solvent based paints.

Fingerprint repellency: Provides finger oil and smudge repellent properties to coatings.

Stain repellence: Increases stain, magic marker and graffiti repellency of paints.
