Initially, developments will be based on Omnovas PolyFox fluoropolymer technology.Through this alliance, we intend to develop a wide range of highly effective, environmentally friendly fluorosurfactants and coatings modifiers to provide the performance that the market is seeking, said Kevin McMullen, chairman and CEO, Omnova.PolyFox fluoropolymers utilize a fluorinated oxetane platform technology. The technology provides structures that enhance properties such as stain resistance, surface flow, leveling and wetting.
