SILFOAM® SC 203

SILFOAM® SC 203 is a 100% active, medium viscosity silicone defoamer compound designed to control foam in oil or solvent based foaming systems. It can be easily emulsified into an emulsion for representative for further information.

 

SILFOAM® SC 203 is certified as Kosher. It is suitable for use in indirect food contact and secondary direct food additive applications listed under FDA 21 CFR176.170; 176.180; 176.200; 176.210;175.300; 177.2600; 178.3400; and 173.340. Some of the listed applications have regulatory limitations, please contact your Wacker Sales Representative for further information.

 

SILFOAM® SC 203 is also registered by NSF to Category Code 3D (as a fruit and vegetable washing product) and Q5 (for use as a foam control agent in egg washing machines). Please refer to the NSF sections for further guidelines on these application.


SILFOAM® SC 203 can be used in various Food, Industrial, and Consumer applications. Some of the applications have regulatory limitations, please contact your Wacker Sales Representative for further information.

 

SILFOAM® SC 203  is most efficient if introduced into the system before foaming has begun.

 

SILFOAM® SC 203 may be introduced as is, or by dispersing in one or more of the ingredients of the system in which foam is to be controlled. It also can be pre-dispersed in an appropriate solvent and then add this dispersion to the foaming system. The solvent used for dilution could be:

 

  • Aromatic hydrocarbons – toluene
  • Aliphatic hydrocarbons – mineral spirits, t-butanol
  • Esters

 

Note: If solvents are used to aid dispersing SILFOAM® SC 203 , the FDA and contact sanctioning becomes null and void.

 

Prior to use, it is recommended that SILFOAM® SC 203 be stirred under low shear for a few minutes before using. This will ensure that the fillers are completely dispersed in the material.

Storage

Store in a dry and cool place. The "Best use before end date" of each batch is shown on the Certificate of Analysis.
