Lanspec EMP208

Lanspec EMP208 is a nonionic surfactant produced by the reaction of ethylene oxide on a synthetic primary alcohol. This product is compatible with soaps, anionic, cationic and other nonionic surfactants, and exhibits good o/w and w/o emulsification, wetting and detergency.

 

Lanspec EMP208 is an excellent emulsifier for emulsion polymerization for systems such as:

 

Vinyl Acetate - Homopolymer

Vinyl Acetate - Acrylic

Styrene - Homopolymer

Styrene - Acrylic

Acrylic Monomers - Esters and Acids
