Benefits you can get from silicone foam control agents over other organic antifoams are numerous thanks to SILCOLAPSE™ solutions.
They prevent, reduce or eliminate foam during the formulation with longer lasting persistence.
Thanks to high effectiveness they can be used at very low use levels. They present greater defoaming action due to lower surface tension. They have better resistance to heat and chemicals and are chemically inert without any reaction with other substances.
SILCOLAPSE™ products are highly safe and environmentally compatible.
