EMULSOGEN SF 8 is anionic emulsifier and wetting agent
EMULSOGEN SF 8 is used as anionic emulsifier for the emulsion polymerization of E-PVC.
EMULSOGEN SF 8 is an APEO-free sodium di (2-ethylhexyl) sulfosuccinate in aqueous solution.
EMULSOGEN SF 8 acts as a wetting agent.
EMULSOGEN SF 8 enhances tinting strength and offers improved stability for organic pigments.
This colorless, clear to cloudy liquid is soluble in water.
EMULSOGEN SF 8 is used in waterborne emulsion paints and coatings with low VOC contents of less than 1% (recommended dosage between 0.3% and 0.6%).
The dosage of EMULSOGEN SF 8 varies between 0.1 and 0.3 % based on the formulation.
EMULSOGEN SF 8 complies with FDA regulations and is listed in AICS, DSL, EINECS, ENCS, IECSC, KECI, NECI, NZloC, PICCS and TSCA.
EMULSOGEN SF 8 is an anionic emulsifier and wetting agent.
This cloudy liquid is composed of sodium di(2-ethylhexyl) sulfosuccinate in water.
EMULSOGEN SF 8 can be used as a wetting agent for emulsion polymers, e.g. SBLatex for carpet coating.
EMULSOGEN SF 8 can also be used as a cake dewatering aide and as a wetting agent for aqueous, VOC-free paints and coatings.
EMULSOGEN SF 8 is an aqueous solution of a dioctyl sulfosuccinate and is mainly used as anionic wetting agent.
Performance of EMULSOGEN SF 8 in emulsion polymerization:
EMULSOGEN SF 8 improves stability of the monomer emulsion,
EMULSOGEN SF 8 enables low coagulum formation during polymerization,
EMULSOGEN SF 8 controls the particle size of the polymer dispersion,
EMULSOGEN SF 8 improves viscosity of the polymer dispersions.
Uses of EMULSOGEN SF 8:

As wetting agents for textile applications. The dosage of EMULSOGEN SF 8 varies between 0.1 – 0.3 % based on the formulation.
As tinting strength enhancer and stabilizer for organic pigments in emulsion paints.
Recommended dosage for emulsion paints: 0,3 – 0,6%.
Benefits of EMULSOGEN SF 8:
The use of EMULSOGEN SF 8 offers the following advantages:
Free of alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEO)
Easy to handle
Handling and Storage of EMULSOGEN SF 8:
Below 10 °C EMULSOGEN SF 8 turns to a cloudy, viscous gel and a phase separation occurs.
After heating to 25°C and mixing with a propeller stirrer the product is ready for use.
During stirring EMULSOGEN SF 8 turns from a cloudy and a clear solution.
These characteristics are for guidance only and are not to be taken as product specifications.
