Specifications

After the removal of Pico-Surf™ 1 oil, a general rule for the volume of Pico-Break™ 1 required to cause phase separation of the emulsion is as follows:

  • Use two times the total volume of emulsion and remaining fluorous oil for Pico-Surf™ concentrations below 3%.
  • Use three times the total volume of emulsion and remaining fluorous oil for PicoSurf™ concentrations above 3%.
