Chemical name: Anionic surfactant
SYCO 566® is a high-performance, APEO free wetting agent, compatible with anionic and non-ionic surfactants. It is recommended for difficult-to-wet substrates such as silicone-treated plastics, papers or glass, cellulosic films, and aluminum and plastic sheets.
SYCO 566® is suitable for aqueous systems, architectural coatings, pigment concentrates, slurry dispersions, printing inks, as an anionic emulsifier for polymerizations and, in some cases, for solvent-based systems.
Polymeric dispersions stabilized with SYCO 566® generally stand out due to their excellent wetting properties, low viscosity and small particle size.
Such surface-active properties manifest themselves in a reduced foaming tendency and a relatively high critical micelle concentration.
