Defoamers

Defoamers prevent foam during the manufacture, filling, and application operations. Generally, defoamers can be mixtures of vegetable and mineral oils, higher molecular weight alcohol, pine oil, fatty esters of polyglycols, synthetic surfactants and methyl-polysiloxanes polylycol solution, hydrophobic in nature, was most effective foaming tendencies. In addition, a polyether modified polymethyl silozene more commonly called a self-emulsifying silicone based polar defoamer, helped to deaerate the product. The silicone material is the active substance. Gloss is not influenced with any reduction. Microfoaming is prevented. This defoamer is especially effective for acrylate/polyurethane polymers.

A slip agent, being a polyethylene wax non-ionic emulsion, exhibits surface slip properties. The homogeneous wax emulsion has extremely fine particle size distribution. The consistent spherical wax particles help to provide good gloss retention. Improved mar resistance, surface hardness, excellent abrasions resistance, and anti-blocking properties are transferred to the system. The water miscible yellow liquid mixes readily into the dispersion system.
