Dextrol™ and Strodex™ phosphate ester surfactants

Dextrol and Strodex phosphate ester surfactants improve gloss, color acceptance and water sensitivity in waterborne paint and coatings. They are superior wetting and dispersing agents for a variety of end uses. They help improve dispersion of pigments during processing and also serve to enhance surface wetting and reduce flash rusting.

In addition to direct addition to waterborne paints and coatings formulations, they are also widely used to disperse pigments and stabilize universal colorant concentrates and as an emulsion stabilizer in emulsion polymerization production of synthetic latex resins for paints, coatings, adhesives and numerous other applications

Applications
Description
Benefits
Alkyd Coatings (solvent-based)
Specific grades of Strodex and Dextrol surfactants are formulated to emulsify and stabilize water (up to 20%) addition to solvent-based alkyd resin based paints.

• Cost reduction via water dilution
• Reduced VOC levels
• Enhances gloss
• Reduces haze

Emulsion Polymerization
Specific grades of Strodex and Dextrol surfactants are effective stabilizers for emulsion polymerization of latex resin. They provide efficient particle size control, low coagulum and improved handling and storage stability.

• Improves stability of finished latex
• Efficient particle size control
• Reduces grit
• Improves handling and storage

Universal Colorant System
Specific grades of Strodex and Dextrol surfactants function as co-dispersants and stabilizers in universal colorant concentrates for point-of-sale tinting. They also provide gloss and color acceptance of the final tinted paint

• Enhances wetting and dispersion of pigments
• Increases gloss
• Enhances tint strength and color development
• Improves viscosity loss on tinting in waterborne architectural paints
