Molecular Defoamers

Our unique molecular defoamers are based on Gemini surfactant technology and offer a combination of foam control and dynamic wetting that displace foam at the molecular level. These multifunctional defoaming surfactants avoid many of the headaches associated with traditional defoamers such as film defects and provide excellent long term efficacy, no shear limitations, and broad system compatibility. These defoamers have the potential to reduce overall additive levels and are exceptionally effective at eliminating microfoam and other foam-related defects in waterborne systems.
