Omnova Introduces PolyFox Flurochemicals
Omnova Solutions, Fairlawn, Ohio, has introduced a new line of fluorochemicals that can be used as
additives and reactants in coating, inks and related applications. PolyFox T and PolyFox TB
materials are the first in a family of polymeric fluorochemicals that will be commercialized under
the PolyFox trademark.PolyFox T, a fluorinated diol, can be used unreacted as an additive in many
coating systems and as a synthetic intermediate in polyurethanes or polyesters. PolyFox TB is based
on the same chemistry, but has diacrylate termination, making it useful as a comonomer or
crosslinker in UV/EB acrylic systems.
