Our OCCA Weekly Webinars series continues with "Maflon: Innovative Fluorinated Solutions" presented by Dr. Ivan Viviani of MAFLON s.p.a.
This webinar is free to attend, simply register below and you'll receive further details/instructions on how to join the webinar in due course.
Maflon is one of the leaders in Fluoro-Carbon specialties, focused on fluorinated products and their applications.
Fluorosurfactants give excellent wetting, spreading and levelling properties in coating, cleaners and polish systems, mainly in all the applications where surface tension is an essential factor to determinate the performance of the final product.
On the other hand, fluoropolymers could create a durable and transparent protection on several surfaces like stone, wood, leather and textile, providing a highly effective defense against agents like water, oil, soil, food and beverages.
A specific research team is always looking for innovative solutions, trying to provide new and eco-friendly constituents that could make the difference once formulated, granting Maflon a constant growth during the recent years.
