FluorN 1740 is a 40% solids, isopar based fluorosurfactant additive that reduces surface tension. 1740 is soluble in most organic non-polar solvents. Applications for 1740 include leveling agent for use in oil-based coatings, foaming agent in petroleum exploration and hydrophobic additive in solvent based paints.
Quantity: 125 ml Shelf life: One year (in unopened conatiner) Key benefits:Reduces surface tension, which improves wetting and enhances leveling of paints, oils and conditioners.
Concentration: FluorN 1740 is effective at concentrations between 0.05 – 0.25% by weight. 1740 is sold as a 40% concentrate in Isopar-H.
Properties: Structure: Fluoroacrylate copolymer Ionic nature: Nonionic Color: Clear yellow liquid Density: 0.98 (~ 7.0lb/gal) Flash point: 30°C Stability: Freeze thaw stable Shelf-life: 2 years Water contact angle: >100° (at 0.25% in alkyd paints) Surface tension: <23 dynes/cm (at 25°C in IPA, MIBK, Butyl-Acetate and Xylene)
Applications: - Improves wetting and leveling and reduces cratering of solvent based paints - Hydrophobic additive for solvent based paints - Oil well stimulation: Foaming agent for kerosene, diesel and hydrocarbons.
