SILFAR® ® is the name of WACKER’s wide range of antifoam agents tailored for use in the pharmaceuticals, food and fermentation sectors, as well as for other biotech processes. SILFAR® products offer impressive performance thanks to their excellent chemical resistance. Since these colorless and odorless grades are not absorbed in the digestive tract, they are not metabolized either.
Their special property profile makes SILFAR® antifoam agents versatile to use in human and veterinary medicine. They are also used in biotech processes that foam excessively.
The SILFAR® product line and its ingredients meet the demands set out in the relevant monographs of the European Pharmacopoeia and U.S. Pharmacopeia.
