Description:

FNC 971 Emulsifier is an oil soluble formulation of proprietary amines in an organic solvent system. FNC 971 Emulsifier forms an oil-external emulsion of natural of synthetic oils in fresh and brine water systems as well as some mineral acids. FNC 971 Emulsifier reduces the interfacial tension between oil, which allows stable emulsions to form. The emulsifier molecules will surround the water droplets by extending their hydrophobic tails outwardly, which allows the hydrocarbon phase to disperse and surround these droplets. FNC 971 Emulsifier forms stable emulsions and also may be used as a primary or secondary emulsifier in drilling mud systems.
