SILFOAM® SD 882
SILFOAM® SD 882 is an anhydrous, low viscosity antifoam agent which spontaneously forms a fine dispersion when added to water or highly polar systems. The degree of organomodification makes SILFOAM® SD 882 control negative effects, e.g., surface defects and separation tendencies.
Specific features of SILFOAM® SD 882
- Self-dispersing Product
The exact amount to be added must be determinded in preliminary tests. We recommend starting with amounts between 0.1% and 0.5%.
Generally, the product should be added as it is, as its self-dispersing properties will usually ensure an adequate and homogeneous distribution.
If SILFOAM® SD 882 is diluted with water, the resultant dispersion must be used quickly.
SILFOAM® SD 882 exhibits excellent defoaming and degassing properties in:
- manufacturing of dispersions
- rendering dispersions and latices low foaming
- defoaming textile auxiliaries
- defoaming paints and varnishes
- defoaming cooling lubricants
- rendering adhesives low foaming
The 'Best use before end' date of each batch is shown on the product label.
