Additives for the Coatings Industry
Lankem has a broad range of surfactants that find application in the formulation of products for use in the oilfield industry, which includes in addition to the classic synthetic surfactants the new range of BioLoop bio-based surfactants.
The BioLoop surfactants offer a broad range of surface-active characteristics in combination with a good profile in terms of ecotoxicity and biodegradability making them particularly useful in environmentally sensitive applications.
The use of surfactants within the energy/oilfield industry is widespread, where their properties are essential both as active materials and formulation aids, these include:
Surfactants find application in many oilfield operations, starting in the upstream operations exploration of fields during the drilling stage through to downstream operations in the refinery.
