Handling and Storage
Below 10 °C Emulsogen SF 8 turns to a cloudy, viscous gel and a phase separation occurs. 
After heating to 25°C and mixing with a propeller stirrer the product is ready for use. 
During stirring Emulsogen SF 8 turns from a cloudy and a clear solution.

Emulsogen SF 8 is an anionic emulsifier and wetting agent. This cloudy liquid is composed of sodium di(2-ethylhexyl) sulfosuccinate in water. It can be used as a wetting agent for emulsion polymers, e.g. SBLatex for carpet coating. Emulsogen® SF 8 can also be used as a cake dewatering aide and as a wetting agent for aqueous, VOC-free paints and coatings.

Emulsogen SF 8 is an aqueous solution of a dioctyl sulfosuccinate and is mainly used as anionic wetting agent.
