SG 3383 is a polyalkylene oxide modified polydimethylsiloxane with the organofunctional groups in pendant position. Because of its special structure SG 3383 exhibits very good surface activity. SG 3383 can be used in aqueous and non-aqueous systems.
SG 3383 is particularly suitable in numerous applications, including: coating to improve coefficient or friction and leveling properties. Due to SG 3383 low surface tension it can yield high wetting, while also enhancing lubricity, sheen, gloss, anti-caking, static suppressing, antifoaming and moderate profoaming. It also demonstrates surfactancy properties that are of benefit in multiple other end applications. It is 100% concentrated, economical, and has low toxicity.
SG 3383 has a shelf life of at least 18 months if stored in originally sealed containers at 25 ºC or 70 ºF. The "Best use before end date" of each batch is shown on the Certificate of Analysis. Storage beyond the date specified on the Certificate of Analysis does not necessarily mean that the product is no longer usable. In this case however, the properties required for the intended use must be checked for quality assurance reasons.
