Evonik Launches TEGO® Twin 4100

  • Wetting and anti-cratering without foaming
  • Raise the performance of your waterborne coatings by using siloxane Gemini technology 

TEGO® Twin 4100 effectively lowers surface tension and improves wetting and flow even at very low concentrations. Its Gemini structure reduces foaming even in highly dynamic processes and application methods.

The product’s good compatibility and long-term activity is also impressive in problematic binder systems. The solvent-free TEGO® Twin 4100 has proven itself particularly in waterborne formulations for wood and industrial finishes as well as printing inks and lacquers.
