DuPont™ Capstone® fluorosurfactants for cleaners and waxes

DuPont™ Capstone® fluorosurfactants are cost-effective additives that enhance the effectiveness of professional-use cleaners, polishes and waxes. Capstone® fluorosurfactants enhance the performance of your cleaning formulation by thoroughly wetting a substrate, allowing the cleaner to further penetrate deep dirt and stains. In addition, Capstone® fluorosurfactants provide enhanced leveling characteristics and improved surface properties in floor care formulations.
Cleaners enhanced with Capstone® fluorosurfactants
Cleaning products formulated with Capstone® fluorosurfactants improve surface wetting, penetration and cleaning efficiency for hard-to-remove soils. Capstone® fluorosurfactants work synergistically with other ingredients, such as hydrocarbon and silicone surfactants, to improve the performance characteristics of your existing cleaning formulation. Using Capstone® fluorosurfactants may reduce or eliminate the need for other additives while maintaining equal or superior performance.
Waxes and polishes
Adding Capstone® fluorosurfactants to waxes and polishes imparts improved leveling, spreading and wetting/re-wetting, improving surface appearance. As a result, there are no re-coatability issues when using Capstone® fluorosurfactants in your formulations.  Capstone® fluorosurfactants FS-61, FS-60, and FS-65 are the most common products for this use.
