Emulsogen LCN 287

Nonionic emulsifier for emulsion polymerization & compatibilizer for tinted waterborne coatings

Edition Date :
October 13, 2018

Emulsogen LCN 287 is used as nonionic emulsifier for the emulsion polymerization of monomers like acrylates, styrene-acrylates, styrene-butadiene and vinyl acetate. It improves the shear, temperature and electrolyte stability of polymer dispersions. The recommended usage is 1-3% active based on monomers.

Emulsogen LCN 287 also acts as wetting agent/compatibilizer in waterborne acrylic lacquers (low PVC). The general dosage (supply form) for this purpose is 1.4%-2.1%. The product is suitable for low odor paints applying for ecolabels such as Blue Angel or Ecoflower.

  • Applications

    Emulsogen LCN 287 can be used as wetting agent in water-borne coatings. It is especially recommended as compatibilizer in tinted emulsion paints (high PVC). Dosage level for this purpose is 1.4%-2.1% in the paint formulation.

    Emulsogen LCN 287 is also used as nonionic emulsifier for the emulsion polymerization of:

    • Styrene/acrylate dispersions
    • Acrylate dispersions
    • Vinyl acetate dispersions
    • Butadiene/styrene latex

     Dosage level is 1 - 3 % based on monomers.
