Benefits

The use of Genapol PF40 offers the following advantages:

Product properties:
 

  • low VOC
  • free of alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEO)
  • readily biodegradable
  • hazard label free
  • easy to handle
  • FDA approved



Performance in emulsion polymerization:
 

  • maintains low viscosity of polymer emulsion at different shear rates
  • enhanced electrolyte stability
  • improved shelf life (high freeze thaw stability)
  • similar polymerization results to APEOs

Applications & Uses

+
Recommended Uses

Product has good wetting and dispersing action coupled with low foaming tendency. Genapol PF 40 is used in several applications and industries:

DETERGENTS

As a low-foaming surfactant with very good dispersing action Genapol PF 40 is used in detergents and cleaning agents. Typical applications include rinsing aids, detergents for dishwashers and bottle-rinsing machines and industrial cleaning formulations.

EMULSION POLYMERIZATION

Genapol PF 40 is also used as a low-foaming emulsifier in emulsion polymerization to improve the latex stability. Genapol PF 40 improves the freeze-thaw stability, electrolyte and shear stability of polymer dispersions. Dosages are between 1 – 3% on monomers.

PIGMENT PREPARATIONS AND DISPERSIONS

Genapol PF 40 is used as wetting and dispersing agent for pigment pastes and preparations. In combination with polyacrylates Genapol PF 40 improves the wetting of hydrophobic pigments like talc, prevents the sedimentation and thixotropy of pigment dispersions. Depending on the particle size of the pigments Genapol PF 40 is added at dosages of 0,5 – 3% to the dispersion

SILICONE EMULSIONS

Genapol PF 40 is used as emulsifier for silicon emulsions used e.g. as silicone based foam control agents.

Applications

Genapol PF 40 is a nonionic emulsifier recommended for:
 

  • Styrene/acrylate dispersions
  • Acrylate dispersions
  • Vinyl acetate dispersions

Storage & Handling

+
Storage And Handling
  • At 20°C Genapol PF 40 is a turbid viscous liquid. Under cooling, higher molecular part of the block copolymer precipitate and the product separates in a range of 10 – 20°C. The separated phase can have varying volume fractions. Below10°C Genapol PF 40 is becoming a solid block.
  • After heating to temperatures above 30 – 60°C and stirring, the product melts again and is ready for use.
