Defoamers and Deaerators

When you have had it up to here with foam – Defoamers and Deaerators

In industrial processes, foam can cause defects on surface coating and creates formation problems. allnex offers an effective solution to control these problems with specially designed defoamers and deaerators. Our modified, highly effective silicon or hydrocarbon-based defoamers/deaerators can be used in the most waterborne paint systems. They have been developed to be compatible across many systems allowing formulators to develop defect-free coatings.

  • Control foam in both the manufacturing or application of the coatings
  • Waterborne and solventborne compatibility
  • Optimized appearance
  • Defect free coatings

Produce Defect Free Surfaces

Addressing the problem of foaming in the solution or on the coated surface during application, allnex defoamers/deaerators additives can be effectively incorporated into most water-based solutions without any negative effect on the rheology. The applications includes waterborne paint systems, adhesives and glue, spray-applied coatings, and high gloss system.

  • Easy to incorporate into waterborne coatings
  • Especially modified emulsifiable defoamer
  • Waterborne systems
  • Well suited for radiation curing system
