When applied to labels, paper, and other mediums, proper wetting in fountain solutions is critical to ensure a smoother application. Niaproof® Anionic Surfactant 08 is an aqueous solution containing 40 percent sodium 2-ethylhexyl sulfate, by weight, which helps improve wetting and emulsification, while decreasing foam, resulting in a clean and uniform application of ink and increased legibility.
Niaproof® Anionic Surfactant 08 is not only foam-free at neutral and acidic pH range, but also has a negligible effect on emulsification. It preserves the delicate emulsification balance between a fast breaking system and rapid re-emulsification which is necessary for high speed printing operations. It is an ideal surfactant to mitigate key formulation challenges.
Excellent Wetting Agent
Niaproof® is an excellent wetting agent with 40 HLB value and stable over wide Ph range. It is a great hydrotrope which improves solubility of desired additives.
Improved Print Quality
Niaproof® provides superior low foaming which helps increase the uniformity of ink solution. It can be a good replacement for Butyl cellusolve and Isopropyl alcohol in fountain solution.
Niaproof® is the only 2-EHS product on the market which is DfE certified (Design for Environment).
