Mozambique What are the Free of silicone defoamers for paints(1)

2023-05-22

Mozambique Selection of antifoaming agents for different applications:

Flat coating

Defoamer is an additive for eliminating foam. A large amount of foam will be produced in the production and application process of coatings, textiles, medicine, fermentation, paper making, water treatment, petrochemical and other fields, which will affect the product quality and production process. Based on the inhibition and elimination of foam, a specific amount of defoamer is usually added to it during production

viscosity-reducing

Alkyl modified organosiloxane
As mentioned earlier, polyether modified polysiloxanes have some shortcomings; Alkyl modified polysiloxanes have precisely these advantages.
This series of polysiloxane products also belong to the comb structure. The molecular weight of this type of product is relatively small, around 10000, and n+m is about 30-50. The main purpose of modifying with alkyl is to improve thermal stability, compatibility, and unstable foaming, and even to have defoaming functions. However, as the modified alkyl chain increases, its ability to reduce surface tension also decreases

Features: Low viscosity, low defoaming pressure

Recommendation: Mineral oils or mineral oil modified polyethers

Elastic coating

black

Defoaming agents should have the following properties: ① strong defoaming power and low dosage; ② Adding to the foaming system does not affect the basic properties of the system, i.e. does not react with the defoaming system; ③ Low surface tension; ④ Good balance with the surface; ⑤ Good heat resistance; ⑥ Good diffusion and permeability, high positive spreading coefficient; ⑦ Chemical stability, strong oxidation resistance; ⑧ Good gas solubility and permeability; ⑨ Low solubility in foaming solutions; ⑩ No physiological activity, high safety.

water-based

Features: High viscosity, high Free of silicone defoamers pressure

Recommendation: Polyether modified silicone

Surface coating and film covering adhesive

Recommendation: Polyethers, which can effectively prevent surface defects and have a small impact on gloss

Water in Water Colorful

dispersant

Features: More surfactants, stable foam

Mozambique Recommendation: Use polyethers or mineral oil to modify polyethers

Precautions for use of paint Free of silicone defoamers:

Before use, stir thoroughly and mix evenly; Adding the paint while stirring; Before use, it is generally not diluted with water; The dosage should be appropriate. Excessive dosage can cause shrinkage, edge shrinkage, poor brushing performance, and other problems; Too little dosage leads to poor defoaming effect; Add it in two stages, namely, add it in the grinding stage and the paint mixing stage, generally accounting for half of the total amount each time. Use defoaming agents with good foam suppression effect in the grinding stage, and use defoaming agents with good foam breaking effect in the paint mixing stage
