DEFOAMERS

Foam develops during the manufacture and application of many types of waterborne coatings, inks and adhesives. Heads of foam, which are caused by mixing and grinding, or that develop during automated filling operations, increase production time and lower the output of the manufacturing process. During application, entrained air and foam are also the causes of undesirable surface defects such as craters, fisheyes and pinholes. For these reasons, the incorporation of a defoamer is important in many waterborne products. Defoamers are essential ingredients in a paint formulation that avoids foam formation and stabilizes in waterborne as well as solvent-borne paints. Proper selection of defoamer quality and quantity is essential for optimal defoamer performance. Defoamers compete with foam-stabilizing ingredients in order to be effective in a coating system. The proper defoaming results in paint quality properties. Our company, as defoamer manufacturers in India, features a wide variety of defoamers for aqueous and non-aqueous coatings in its product line-up and offers the most suitable solutions by adjusting additives according to the paint’s viscosity, its production process, the paint application process and the type of resin.
