Product Description

Chemours Dupont Capstone FS-83 - 88.106 lb Drum

FS-83 is a solvent-borne additive that provides low surface
tension in solvent-based paints. It is compatible with most
organic solvent-based systems. The low surface tension enables
better wetting, spreading, leveling t- correct solvent-borne
coating defects, such as fisheyes, craters, pinholes and orange
peel. When cured int- a coating, it provides water and oil
repellency, as well as chemical resistance, t- the film.
Even at very low use rates, FS-83 can deliver excellent repellency
t- the film, which can be measured by water and hexadecane
contact angle. The typical use rate of FS-83 for most coating
applications is from 0.02% t- 0.1% on an active ingredient (a.i.)
basis. For solvent-based paints, the typical use rate is 0.05%.
