Applications & Uses+
MUNZING’s METOLAT 700 series are APEO free wetting agents with excellent equilibrium and dynamic surface tension reduction for a wide range of coating and ink applications. The product range is formulated with varying HLB values to provide optimal compatibility and performance based on the system chemistry and application requirements.
- Printing ink
- Coatings; architectural, wood and industrial
- Overprint varnishes
The properties of a wetting agent are greatly dependent upon our customer’s formulations and consequently, should always be tested (possibly at different treatment levels, temperatures, and/or time intervals) to verify performance prior to use. Optimization studies are recommended to achieve the proper cost effective dosage level. The normal dosage ranges from 0.10% to 2.0%.
