SILFOAM® SE 2060
SILFOAM® SE 2060, which contains 15 % active ingredient and 25 % solids, is a versatile antifoam that is comparatively rich in emulsifier and that can be easily metered due to its low viscosity. Since it also possesses resistance to alkalis and acids, it may further be used in a wide range of applications in which pH is critical.
SILFOAM® SE 2060 complies with US FIFRA regulations 40 CFR § 180.920 and can be applied for pre-harvest pesticide formulations. National regulations applicable in the countries concerned must be observed.
In general 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.
The typical dosage is in the range of 0.05 to 0.5 % and is best determined by preliminary tests.
SILFOAM® SE 2060 shows a very good foam control performance in formulations rich in surfactants.
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.
