GLOFOAM DF 415

GLOFOAM DF 415

Description

Antifoaming and defoaming agent for waterborne coatings. Was formulated using the latest raw materials and technology available. Laboratory tests showed excellent results in quelling aeration in a wide range of applications including Emulsion Polymers, Surface Coatings, Textiles, Adhesives and High PVC paints during manufacture.

Typical Properties

Appearance:  Light straw amber
Solubility:    Dispersible in water
Activity: 100%
Density: 0.90

General Characteristics

Highly active nature producing long lasting efficiency thereby increasing product shelf life.

Promotes rapid knockdown of foam during manufacture.

Excellent product stability resulting in a surface, free of defects

Excellent dispersibility is achieved during production of High PVC paints, Gloss and Semi-Gloss paints.

Application

Can be used as received.

The optimum amount required is determined by evaluation of the product in the paint formulation being used.

A suggested level of addition of 0.2% – 0.5% on total batch size is recommended.

To achieve greater effectiveness it is suggested that the level of defoamer be split at the “grind” stage and “let down” stage. This method is most effective for Polymers.
