In The News

July 2017

Cytonix introduced FluorAcryl 7298, an oleophobic, anti-fouling and magic marker repellent additive for UV-curable coatings and photo resists. This additive at 2% makes most acrylate UV curable resins oil, water and stain repellent. With 7298 contact angles for water >100° and for oil > 75° can be expected.

February 2016

Cytonix introduced FluoroPel Multi-Surface, a nano hydrophobic treatment for metal, glass and plastic. This coating can be applied by spraying, dipping or brushing, and heating is optional. Contact angle for water are >110° and for oil > 50°. The material is available in a variety of organic solvents including Fluoro-Sovents, Butyl-Acetate and Ethyl-Acetate.

November 2015

Cytonix introduced the fluorinated surfactant FluorN S83. Fluorosurfactants are widely used as leveling, wetting and forming agents. Fluorosurfactants lower surface tension and improve water, oil and stain repellency. Cytonix surfactants for non-aqueous, non-polar solvent systems include FluorN 1740 and FluorN S83. These fluorosurfactants are widely used in sealers, inks, paints and for oil-well stimulation. Cytonix also offers FluorN 561 and FluorN 562, for aqueous, polar solvent systems.
