SILFAR® is the name of WACKER’s range of silicone-based products specifically intended for the pharmaceutical and food industries, as well as for use in fermentation and other biotech processes. SILFAR® products feature outstanding chemical resistance. They are not resorbed in the digestive tract, and are therefore not metabolized. They are colorless and odorless.
Because of their special range of properties, SILFAR® antifoam agents are widely used in human and veterinary medicine. Another field of application is heavily foaming biotechnology processes.
Many products of the SILFAR® range and their ingredients satisfy the monographs in the European Pharmacopoeia and the requirements of the US Pharmacopeia.
