FluorN 560-series (561 and 562) are 100% solids, non-reactive, fluorine containing, ethylene glycol based polymeric fluorosurfactants compatible with aqueous and most polar solvent based inks, coatings, resists and emulsions. The 560 series are non-ionic and provide low surface tensions in aqueous and polar coating systems. These are excellent wetting, leveling and spreading agents for a variety of waterborne, high-solids and radiation curable organic coatings.

Packaging: FluorN is also available in: • 1 lb bottles • 8 lb (1 gal) pails • 35 lb (5 gal) drums
Chemical composition: FluorN 560 series products have four pendant groups on a polypropylene glycol backbone. FluorN 562 has two perfluoro groups and two polyethylene glycol groups. For FluorN 561 the ratio is one perfluoro group and three polyethylene glycol groups. Therefore, FluorN 562 has a slightly higher fluorine content than FluorN 561.
Applications: FluorN 560 series is used as additives in architectural coatings, inks, floor polishes, waxes, high solids coatings, water reducible coatings, radiation curable coatings and photoresists. Recommended use level is between 0.05% and 1.0% active surfactant. However, use level can vary depending on the application and concentration of other additives and solvents in the formulation.
Regulatory: FluorN 560 series products do not contain PFOA or PFOS, do not degrade to PFOS or PFOA and do not derive from compounds comprising these materials. These product are in compliance with the chemical notification requirements of TSCA are REACH compliant in Europe.
