Oman What are the ink defoamer for paints(2)





Precautions for use of paint ink defoamer:

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

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
