DuPont™ Capstone® Fluorosurfactants

Capstone® fluorosurfactants enhance formulations by substantially reducing surface tension, and by improving properties such as wetting and spreading, leveling, penetrating, foaming control, chemical stability and thermal stability. Based on short-chain chemistry that cannot break down to perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in the environment, they offer customers the same or better performance as their predecessors without a compromise in fluorine efficiency, and meet the goals of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency 2010/15 PFOA Stewardship Program. They are used in a variety of materials such as paints and coatings, adhesives, waxes and polishes, and industrial cleaning products.
