EBC Maxemul™ 6106

A 100% bio-based anionic, copolymerisable surfactant for use as a stabiliser in latex binders typically used in waterborne wall paints, wood and metal protection coatings, pressure sensitive adhesives and elastomeric roof coatings. The surfactant is reactive towards vinylically unsaturated monomers. The surfactant enhances the colloidal stability of the latex and improves dry film properties.
