SILFOAM® SC 120
SILFOAM® SC 120 is an anhydrous antifoam compound. Because of its low viscosity, it is easier to handle than high viscous grades.
SILFOAM® SC 120 shows a high resistance in alkaline environments. Its excellent alkali resistance renders it extremely versatile.
Specific features of SILFOAM® SC 120
- Listed in EPA database
SILFOAM® SC 120 was conceived for the agrochemical industry, biotechnology, technical processes, washing industry, fermentation.
SILFOAM® SC 120 is added directly to the slurry in the feed tank at the end of the slurry degassing process to suppress the foam and also deaerate the slurry in the intermediate tank.
To regulate foaming in laundry detergents, SILFOAM® SC 120 is usually incorporated (in an amount of 5-10%) into a powdery premix and the latter is then mixed into the powder detergent at the end of the manufacturing process (amount required: 2-4% premix).
The foaming of filled and structured liquid detergents can be regulated by admixing SILFOAM® SC 120.
If SILFOAM® SC 120 is not sufficiently compatible, we can recommend specialty products.
- powder detergent: ca. 0.5%
- structured liquid detergent: ca. 0.2 - 0.6%
- slurry deaeration: ca. 0.02 - 0.1%
The 'Best use before end' date of each batch is shown on the product label.
Storage beyond the date specified on the label does not necessarily mean that the product is no longer usable. In this case however, the properties required for the intended use must be checked for quality assurance reasons.
