Dow surfactants include some of the most familiar anionic and nonionic products in the industry, known worldwide for excellent emulsification and dispersion. They increase the cleaning and wetting properties of household, industrial and institutional cleaning products. Dow surfactants are also used by formulators of paints, coatings and inks for pigment wetting, film leveling and pigment and dye stabilization.
Dow surfactants contribute desired mechanical properties and storage stability to emulsion polymerization systems, including styrene-butadiene, vinyl, acrylic and other copolymer latex resin systems. They are also broadly used in agricultural formulations, textile processing, paper manufacturing and oilfield operations.
