Silicone Antifoam Agent | Antifoam

Processes in textiles include desizing (removal of the size material from warp yarns after weaving), bleaching, dyeing, printing, washing, scouring etc. produce some degree of unwanted foams that lower productivity.

Chevell silicone antifoam Agent and defoaming agents used in the right combinations, make manufacturing more efficient and cleaner, improve the quality of final products, reduce waste and energy consumption and facilitate recycling.

Silicone foam control solutions (also referred to as Silicone Antifoam Agent, Antifoam agents,Defoamers,Defoaming agent) are recognized as the material of choice for Textile & Leather processing because they offer several advantages:

  • Silicone Antifoam Agent prevent foam from occurring and reduce it more quickly and efficiently when it does occur, known as the knockdown effect, accelerating processing speed and improving Leather & Textile productivity and quality.
  • They decrease the consumption of water and chemicals, such as bleach or dyes.
  • Silicone Antifoam Agent are more resistant to chemical additives, as well as temperature variations, thus ensuring stability throughout the process.
  • The quantities of silicone products needed to achieve required effects are much lower than organic or mineral-based products and offer more durable low surface tension, especially important in complex and long-lasting processes.

  • High antifoam efficiency in surfactant-rich systems
  • Rapid foam knockdown
  • Long-term foam inhibition
  • Easy dispersion in all foam systems
  • Easy dispersion in hard water
  • Long durability in acid and alkaline conditions
  • No oily spots or lumps when diluted with water
  • Compatibility with a variety of surfactant concentrates

FOAMFREE 2410 defoaming molecule that defoams by a different mechanism. Unlike conventional defoamers (mineral oil or silicone), FoamStar defoams on a molecular level. It also has wetting properties not found in other conventional defoamers. It is mainly recommended to use water-based architectural coatings, water-based industrial coatings, high-gloss coatings, inks, adhesives, emulsion polymerization, etc.

  • Use 1/3 – 1/2 Less Defoamer
  • Save at least 20 % on Defoamer Costs
  • Non-separating & non-settling
  • Extremely Effective in Low VOC coatings.
  • Very Fast bubble-break versus conventional defoamers
  • Effective against Micro-foam

Viscosity: 200-2000

Chemical Basis: Molecule compounded in an enhanced mineral-oil system

Form: Liquid

FOAMFREE 2190 is a compound highly effective defoamer, 100% effective content, does not affect the gloss of the system. The key recommended industries are coatings (architectural coatings, water-based wood paints, etc.), water-based inks, water-based adhesives, etc.

  • Broad spectrum – use of multiple defoaming mechanisms allows for FOAMFREE 2190 defoamer’s effectiveness in a wide range of latex based adhesives, coatings and inks.
  • Compatibility – FOAMFREE 2190 defoamer has been designed to have good film compatibility, which translate to clear, defect free films.
  • Persistency – FOAMFREE 2190 defoamer has been formulated for maximizing the ongoing defoaming effectiveness in adhesives with regards to both storage life and with continuous pumping/application conditions.
