LoVOCoat LFM 500

High molecular weight nonionic surfactant for water in oil (A / O) emulsion with the objective of reducing VOC in alkyd paints. The water behaves like a liquid charge in an alkyd enamel to partially replace the solvent. The stability of the formulation is guaranteed with the help of the polymeric surfactant LoVOCoat LFM 500. Thus, solvent-based alkyd resins can be formulated economically, of high quality and with low VOC.
