This noncoupling treatment is a thermally stable, aromatic hydrophobe designed to improve dispersion and wetout while displacing moisture from the filler surface.
Many sulfate-free surfactants exist but can be difficult to formulate with and tend to suffer drawbacks such as poor foaming, unwanted by-products, non-natural hydrophobe sources, ethylene oxide (EO) moieties present, pH instability and undesirable irritancy profiles.
fabricated the superhydrophobic coating through direct mixing of colloidal silica particles (10-20 nm) with sol-gel derived silica binder and the hydrophobe (heptadecafluoro-1,1,2,2-tetrahydrodecyl) triethoxysilane.
Moreover, says Dow Corning, the alkyl functionality of Z-6173 acts as a hydrophobe to reduce water absorption.
This can be explained by the fact that as the CMC is exceeded, each polymer hydrophobe becomes individually solubilized by a single micelle.

These studies have shown that the inner cavity of a cyclodextrin molecule has a capping effect on the hydrophobe moieties of thickeners, reducing the network strength of linked polymers and lowering the viscosity of the solution.
The onset of CAC and CMC are highly dependent on the actual structure of the surfactant molecule, size of hydrophobe and hydrophile, as well as molecular weight.
