Wetting is known as a ubiquitous natural phenomenon where a layer of fluid material is covered invariably with a solid substrate. This involves the surface forces resulting in the equilibrium surface coverage and wetting of a substrate that comes in contact with a liquid drop. There are various scenarios for the transition of the wetting phase that occurs based on the nature of the surface forces. Here, the super wetter is considered the substrate wetting agent, which increases the contact between liquid and substrate and reduces the surface tension. Superwetting surfactants help solve various problems at one time in different end-use industries like agriculture, paints & coatings, and other industrial applications. Moreover, the superwetting surfactants have the multi-functional characteristic that is widely used in developing high-performance varnishes and coatings formulations.


The superwetting surfactants have important key features: spreading, good water-solubility, and wetting properties. Thus, the product is applicable in agricultural adjuvants with excellent wetting and spreading properties. A substantial-high demand has been evident in the global coating industry from the bigger end-users like automotive, building and construction, consumer durables and others, which is propelling the superwetting surfactants industry. For instance, superwetting surfactants have huge demands across the world to develop coating formulations for hard-to-coat surfaces like composites, wood, and metals. All these factors are estimated to thrive in the global market and product demands in the further coming years.
