Because many products containing APEOs
did not list surfactants on labels, a significant fraction of the products may contain 4-t-nonylphenol from other uses, such as plasticizers, or are simply unlabeled.
2-1 Output of APEO
and its share in ethoxylate, 2001-2008
Rhoplex EZ Clean 200 also contains no APEO
(alkyl phenol ethoxylate), allowing it to be formulated into paints that meet environmental and regulatory compliance.
Additionally, both are free of added APEO
surfactants, and with minimum film forming temperature (MFFT) values approximately 0[degrees]C, may be formulated to <50 g/L VOC without the use of "low-VOC" plasticizing coalescents.
Furthermore, customers are looking at removing other chemicals such as APEO
from their final products, and Celanese has responded by offering a line of emulsions that meet this market expectation.
They provide outstanding appearance, gloss retention, superior repairability, recoatability, and are APEO
The broad-spectrum, water-based cationic fluoropolymer is PFOA-free at or above detection limits and has no VOCs or APEO
Aqueous dispersions APEO
and VOC free for a wide variety of water-based applications.
The water-based binder also does not contain any organic solvents or plasticizers and is APEO
Comments: NeoRez R-552 is a polyurethane dispersion that is APEO
and TEA free (HAPS free) for automotive and industrial laminating applications.
Switzerland is the only country to outright ban APEO
surfactants, which it did in the early 1990s.
All are APEO
free with excellent equilibrium and dynamic surface tension reduction for numerous coating and ink applications.
