T-Det® A 1320-8 is an 80% active, APE-free polymeric surfactant designed for use in emulsion polymerization systems. It can be used alone as the main emulsifier or in combination with other co-surfactants. It has a unique and proprietary reaction profile that results in low levels of polyethylene glycol, which can cause problems in latex production and post-processing. This product can be added after the production of acrylic latexes to provide additional stability against issues such as viscosity creep, shear thickening, and freeze-thaw separation. This surfactant is useful for both acrylic and styrene-acrylic latexes.

Functions: Emulsifier, Surfactant

End Uses: Latexes

Applicable Processes: Emulsion Polymerization
