Emulsogen PF 20 S
Emulsifier for emulsion polymerization
Polyalkylene glycol ether sulfate, ammonium salt
Ammonium salt of propylene/ethylene oxide polymer
Emulsogen PF 20 S by Clariant is an APEO-free, low VOC (less than 15) ammonium salt of polyalkylene gylcol ether sulfate (sulfate ester).
Emulsogen PF 20 S acts as an emulsifier. It is resistant to water hardness salts and to acids and alkalis in the concentrations normally used.
This yellowish brown liquid dissolves readily in water to form a clear solution.

Emulsogen PF 20 S is resistant to water hardness salts and to acids and alkalis in the concentrations normally used.
Emulsogen PF 20 S can be used in combination with other nonionic and anionic surfactants.
Emulsogen PF 20 S is used as an emulsifier in emulsion polymerization, particularly in the manufacture of acrylate and styrene / acrylate dispersions.
Emulsogen PF 20 S is very suitable emulsifier for the control of the polymer particle size, thus giving very fine polymer particles, and they very effectively prevent the coagulation of the polymer particles during emulsion polymerization.
Emulsogen PF 20 is sulfuric monoester of polyalkylene glycol block copolymers, which when used already generally produce a very good color-strength yield.
Emulsogen PF 20 S is a polyalkylene glycol ether sulfate ammonium salt.
Sulfuric monoester of polyalkylene glycol block copolymer Emulsogen PF 20 S is obtained by reacting ethylene oxide/propylene oxide block polymers with amidosulfonic acid,
The sulfuric monoesters takes the form of ammonium salt and so Emulsogen PF 20 S is obtained.
Emulsogen PF 20 S is used for emulsion polymerization that allow a high polymer dispersion solids content and achieve a high color strength of the emulsion paints
