Surfactants for the Emulsion Polymerization

Providing application benefits along the value chain

There are a variety of attributes that are of high importance for the emulsion polymerization process and the final application. Manufacturers of latex dispersions expect components and raw materials to provide a range of properties, such as:

  • Easy handling
  • Safe use and low impact on the environment
  • High biodegradability
  • Global availability

We offer a broad range of surfactants to be used as emulsifiers in the emulsion polymerization process. Products from the EMULSOGEN®, GENAPOL®, HOSTAPUR®, HOSTAPHAT® and HOSTAPAL® series control the particle size and particle size distribution, improve electrolyte, freeze-thaw stability and reduce grid formation.
