SILFOAM® SE 1060
SILFOAM® SE 1060 is a versatile antifoam emulsion, which contains a comparatively high amount of emulsifier.
It features a high resistance to alkalis and acids and may further be used in a wide range of areas in which pH is critical.
SILFOAM® SE 1060 has proved ideal for tackling foam in surfactant rich formulations.
It is mainly used in wastewater treatment but it is also a useful auxiliary in many processes of the chemical industry.

SILFOAM® SE 1060 is a low-viscosity emulsion, it can be metered readily, with stable dispersions easily attainable in high-viscosity formulations.
In low-viscosity products, preliminary compatibility and stability tests should be performed on the system to be defoamed.
The amount to add to liquid formulations depends on the desired degree of foam control, but usually lies between 0.1 and 2 %.
If SILFOAM® SE 1060 is to be added during a process, the emulsion should be added undiluted, as it is already sufficiently dispersed by its emulsion form.
Especially after a longer storage time we recommend to stir the emulsion before use (approx. 3 minutes with a propeller stirrer at 200 – 400 rpm).
But be cautious: too high shear can break the emulsion.
If feed pumps are used, they should be of the low shear force type.
