All the information provided is in accordance with the present state of our knowledge. Nonetheless, we disclaim any warranty or liability whatsoever and reserve the right, at any time, to effect technical alterations.

This disclaimer of warranty and liability also applies particularly in foreign countries with respect to third parties' rights.
SILFOAM® SD 170 A is recommended for all organic systems that require a compatible antifoam agent. It is particularly recommended for systems with high surfactant content or which entail high shear forces. In those systems purely organic defoamers rapidly become ineffective. SILFOAM® SD 170 A also serves as an antifoam agent for strongly foaming, fine particle rich suspensions and in the production of redispersible powders.
SILFOAM® SD 170 A is an excellent additive to detergents and organic fabric softener base emulsions to aid in controlling foam in the wash and rinse cycles.
SILFOAM® SD 170 A can be used undiluted.
The exact dosage must be determined in preliminary tests. We recommend starting with amounts between 0.05 and 0.3%. Generally, the product should be added as it is, as its self-dispersing properties will usually ensure an adequate and homogeneous distribution. If the SILFOAM® SD 170 A is diluted with water, the resultant dispersion must be used quickly. It is recommended that SILFOAM® SD 170 A be stirred before use.
