Eco-Friendly Wetting Agents

How can a wetting agent be eco-friendly? The ultrashort-chain C2 and C3 flurosurfactant technology of our Tivida® Fl enables us to provide you a wetting agent that is environmentally friendly & effective.


Our solution for eco-friendly wetting agents

The Tivida® FL product line’s success lies in its unique molecular design. As opposed to standard longchain (C6) fluorosurfactants, Tivida® FL has a branched structure with ultrashort fluorinated alkyl groups (C2 and C3). This structure allows our Tivida® FL surfactants to achieve top performance in a broad range of coating formulations while at the same time being nontoxic, nonbioaccumulative and environmentally friendly. Competitor materials with standard linear long chains need to constantly maintain a balance between performance and toxicity/bioaccumulation. With Tivida® FL, you enjoy the advantages without any compromises until 2020 and beyond.
