(Further development of Antispread F2)

Target of further development

Development of an epilamization agent with high efficacy and universal material compatibility, which can be used in existing technical applications without changing the process. The new epilamization agents must be in accordance to the latest intensified legal foundations of the EU.

This target has successfully been reached with very high time and effort!

Agent of Antispread F2 (up to now)

Up to now, the Antispread epilamization agents contain a fluorinated, polymeric agent system (fluoraliphatic polymers). The agent system reduces the apparent surface tension of the material surfaces applied to. The agent system contains PFOS (perfluoroctansulfonates).

With EU directive 2006/122/ECOF PFOS containing substances now are extremely limited in new technical applications, i.e. for coatings, too.

Even in such a low concentration of PFOS like in Antispread, the EU limit (0.005%) is overcome by a factor of about 10.

Depending from 27.06.2008 PFOS containing substances are only allowed in already existing applications, but their production is no longer permitted.

Agents of Antispread E2 (new)

During a comprehensive further development we have designed an Antispread formulation with highest efficacy but containing no more PFOS. The new agent systems still is a fluoraliphatic polymer, but now free of PFOS.

Showing the same efficacy the new agent system has the additional advantage of no more needing perfluorcarbons (PFCs) as a solvent (carrier fluid). PFCs are also indexed by the EU, since they are mentioned in the list of fluorinated greenhouse gases (EU directive 842/2006). It is estimated, that their use will be prohibited in the future.

The carrier fluid system of the new Antispread is a partially fluorinated ether compound, which is not affected by the EU directive dealing with the fluorinated greenhouse gases.

The Antispread product series therefore guarantees an industrial application for another decade (according to previous procedures political and other perils excepted).

Efficacy of Antispread E2 (new)

In all our tests the new Antispread E2 shows a highly efficacious behaviour.

Comparison Antispread E2 (new) and Antispread F2 (up to now)

Both products exhibit a comparable, highly efficacious, migration reducing behaviour.

Miscibility of Antispread E2 (new) and Antispread F2 (up to now)

The two products can be mixed in a volume ratio 1:1 (clear solution).

Conformity with Specifications

Antispread E2 and Antispread F2 are conform with the quality specifications of our quality management system.

Difference (comparison of data) of Antispread E2 (new) and Antispread F2 (up to now)

The new Antispread E2 has a density of 1.5 g/cm³ compared to 1.7 g/cm³ of the Antispread F2 (up to now). Due to the fact that both products are applied by volume, this difference has no technical relevance. Concerning product costings the density has to be considered.

Documentation and technical information

In KW 24 a general documentation will be sent to all our customers (Powerpoint presentation).

All other additional information, test results, procedures and methods will be supplied on our epilamization website depending from KW24.

There you will find our latest insights concerning the temperature gradient dependence of wetting processes of lubricants on polymeric surfaces.

Application specific support during the change-over from Antispread F2 to Antispread E2.

We assist you with all our knowledge, our several decades long application know-how and all our laboratory test methods, to clarify and answer all your questions and concerns. Please tell us your application and the materials used, so we can give to you all necessary and continuative information.

Availability ofAntispread E2(new)

After the successful completion of all our quality release tests, Antispread E2 can be sampled and delivered for technical applications since KW23.

Individual speciality products for medical and pharmaceutical applications will be available depending from KW 32, after the official release of one ingredient by the EU.

Coverage of Antispread F2 (up to now)

We are only allowed to produce Antispread F2 until 27.06.2008. Our production stock then will cover a normal consumption until September 2008. After that time period Antispread F2 will no more be available.


At present we are producing Antispread F2 (up to now) at the limit of our production capacities. An increase of the production volume is not possible. Since we aim to treat all our customers in the same manner, we only can deliver the average consumption volumes needed up to now. We ask for your understanding in this matter. Antispread E2 (new) is deliverable in any volume depending from now.
