Main components of mineral oil UV curing defoamer Papua New Guinea(2)





Defoaming mechanism of hydrophobic solid particles
Hydrophobic solid particles in the foam system will first attract the hydrophobic end of the surfactant, making the hydrophobic solid particles become hydrophilic, thus reducing the concentration of surfactant in the foam film and promoting the foam to burst. This defoaming mechanism cannot explain the action mechanism of other defoaming agents, which is too one-sided. [4] Other reasons for the bursting of foam are the impact caused by the expansion of defoamer, the solubilization of surfactant and the collapse of electrolyte, and the bursting of electric double layer on the liquid film surface. [4] It can be seen from the above defoaming mechanisms that each defoamer has different emphasis on different foam systems, but defoaming is achieved by destroying the stability factors of foam



Inorganic hydrophobic particles account for about 10% of the total, and they are evenly dispersed in mineral oil, which is one of the key factors because their hydrophobic strength determines the effectiveness of defoaming performance, which can help UV curing defoamer Papua New Guinea factors reach the surface of the liquid film more easily, allowing the defoaming agent to quickly blend with the liquid film to increase defoaming speed.

Emulsifiers, also known asUV curing defoamer Papua New Guinea auxiliaries, aim to increase emulsifying performance, thereby increasing the normal functioning of defoamers, that is, stability. Usually, the proportion is also 10%. Generally, emulsification additives that are compatible with mineral oil and do not affect the appearance performance are selected. When mixed with mineral oil defoamers, they can play a role in the aqueous system and cooperate with defoaming factors to defoaming.
