Are you facing any issue when you use surfactant as it creates foam?
The traditional surface wetting agent is based on anionic surfactant chemistry. Anionic surfactant is very effective in reducing the surface tension but it also created foam. Is it possible to have a wetting agent without foam ?
Our Solution: Tego 4100
Tego Twin 4100 is a siloxane based Gemini surfactant. The silicone chemistry leads to an extraordinary low surface tension and it has non-foaming/defoaming properties.
Its advantages are :
- Helps the deaeration effect
- Improves wetting and decreases framing
- Works as an anti-cratering agent
- Improves flow and leveling
- Works on extremely difficult substrates
- 100% Active Material
- Very low dosage required only (0.05 – 0.5%)
Tego Twin 4100 vs Other Wetting Agents
In overall, the differences between the Tego Twin 4100 (Siloxane-Gemini Surfactants) and other Wetting agents are as summarised as below.
|Categories||Organic-Gemini Surfactants||Standard Siloxone Surfactants||Siloxane-Gemini Surfactants|
|Substrate wetting on difficult substrates||0||++||++|
|Lowering of Surface Tension||0||+||++|
The products’ defoaming efficacy is more superior to the other wetting agents as well.
Also Tego Twin 4100 is more superior to other competitors’ products in terms of wetting on difficult subsrate.
