T-Det® A 1340 is a polymeric surfactant that is APE-free and designed for use in emulsion polymerization systems. It can be used alone or in combination with other co-surfactants, and it has a unique reaction profile with low levels of polyethylene glycol. This product can be post-added to acrylic latexes to provide stability against viscosity creep, shear thickening, and freeze-thaw separation. T-Det® A 1340 is useful for both acrylic and styrene-acrylic latexes and is a solid that melts at 47°C. It can be solubilized in water with mild agitation.
