The mechanism of action of an emulsifier during emulsion polymerization is considered. It has been proved that the emulsifying efficiency Is increased by the use of a system of ion-generating emulslfler with a non-Ionic emulsifier or a compound of appropriate hydrophillc — hydrophobic equilibrium and of low surface activity (e.g. cetyl alcohol). Thus the polymerization rates and molecular mass of the polymer is increased and the size of latex particles is decreased.
