CytoPel 260 is a water-based hydrophobic and oleophobic solution for coating membranes, cloth and other porous substrates. Thin films dry in less than an hour room temperature and provide a surface with a contact angle to water of approximately 100°. On membranes, mesh and filters, CytoPel does not occlude pores and helps achieve oleophobicity grades up to 5. CytoPel 260 is provided at concentrations of 20% or 1% in water. Samples are for industrial and research use only.
