Application area

Genapol PF 80 is a pore-forming dispersant and plasticizer for plasters, mortars, and putties based on cement, lime, or gypsum. Genapol PF 80 improves the processability, softness, and surface smoothness of building materials. Dispersion of fine particles of mineral binders and pigments is ensured, and the stickiness of plasters and solutions containing methylcellulose on the instrument is reduced.

With Genapol PF 80, lump formation in gypsum plasters is reduced, and the processing time is significantly extended.

Genapol PF 80 is compatible with all anionic and nonionic surfactants and Mecellose methylcelluloses.

The formation of air pores with Genapol PF 80 depends on the composition of the respective building mixtures and the time and intensity of mixing.


Genapol PF 80 can be combined with other nonionic, anionic, and cationic surfactants. Genapol PF 80 is resistant to water hardness, metal salts, and acids and alkalis in the usually-used concentrations. Preliminary tests are required.


Genapol PF 80 has a good wetting and dispersing action and a low foaming tendency.
Genapol PF is a low-foaming surfactant with very good dispersing in detergent and cleaning agent powders. These can be produced simply by mixing the powder components.
Genapol PF 80 is also used as a low-foaming emulsifier in emulsion polymerization and as a dispersing agent for pigment pastes and preparations.
Other applications include reactions in the chemical industry.

Genapol PF 80 can be stored for at least two years in original sealed containers at room temperature under the recommended conditions.
Genapol PF 80 does not change product properties when exposed to cold during transport and storage.

Genapol PF 80 is also supplied in the form of very fine beads. It is an appropriate choice for powder-type detergents and cleaners if surfactants cannot be sprayed on in liquid or paste form. It is easy to blend with other powders, and it has the added advantage of preventing dusting.
It can be used to disperse suspended calcium and magnesium salts and to remove and disperse soil in acid pickling baths. Because it is nonionic, it can be used for cleaning metal electrolytically.
It can also be employed to solubilize essential oils and to emulsify monomers.
