DeCAL 2170B – High efficiency surfactant and versatile wetting agent
DeCAL 2170B is a formulated aqueous/propylene glycol solution of sodium dioctyl sulphosuccinate.
Pigment dispersion – Self-emulsifying pigment pastes can be formulated comprising of only the pigment and DeCAL 2170B
Water based coatings – DeCAL 2170B may be post-added to a coating formulation to assist the wetting of substrates with low surface tension, e.g. plastics and metals. The optimal concentration range for DeCAL 2170B in this application must be derived from a series of experiments in the actual formulation in order to achieve maximum wetting with low foaming.
Water-based wax formulations such as car polishes can be stabilised against phase separation by the addition of DeCAL 2170B.
