Non-F Repellents for Paper Products

<< Back to Blog


Flexipel 61 and Flexipel 50 are non-fluorinated water repellents & release agents for treatment of paper and paperboard, including food contact uses.  These products form a polymer film on the substrate upon drying.  They have a good rate of cure at room temperature.  During curing, an insoluble layer of the polymerized complex chemically bonds to available polar groups on the substrate surface and provides high durability.  Flexipel 61 and Flexipel 50 are solutions (in isopropanol) of a water-soluble organometallic fatty acid ester.  Flexipel 61 is a higher solids product.
