In The News

February 2016

Cytonix just introduced, FluoroPel Multi-Surface, a nanoscale multi-surface hydrophobic treatment for metal, glass and plastic. This affordable material is applied by spraying, dipping or wiping, and heating is not required. FluoroPel-Multi-Surface is designed for general purpose and multi-surface treatment for applications that do not require long-term abrasion durability. The coating does not change the appearance of the material and is 100% transparent to visible light. Contact angle for water are >110° and for oil > 34°. The material is available in a variety of organic solvents including Butyl-Acetate, Ethyl-Acetate and Mineral Spirits.

November 2015

Cytonix introduced the fluorinated surfactant FluorN S83 this month. Fluorosurfactants are widely used as leveling, wetting and forming agents. Fluorosurfactants lower surface tension and increase water repellency more effectively than hydrocarbon surfactants. Cytonix surfactants for non-aqueous, non-polar solvent systems include FluorN 1740H and FluorN S83. These fluorosurfactants are widely used in sealers, inks, paints and for oil-well stimulation. Cytonix also offers FluorN 561 and FluorN 562, for aqueous, polar solvent systems.

December 2014

Cytonix LLC announced the commercial availability of a new, highly durable oleophobic anti-fingerprint coating called FluoroSyl™ FSM3750. FSM3750 is an exceptional coating that is long-lasting and repels dirt, stains, fingerprints and other contaminants. This proprietary fluorosilane provides a smooth, silky-feeling to the surface of glass, metals and other oxides containing materials.
