Product Overview
Surfadone™ LP-300 exhibits greater efficiency in static surface tension reduction than Surfadone™ LP-100. Like its lower homolog, Surfadone™ LP-300 wetting agent interacts with anionic surfactants, forming mixed micelles, which greatly enhances its solubility, resulting in a synergistic surface tension reduction and wetting enhancement.
