The activity of SILFOAM® SP 150 is unaffected by a wide range of temperatures. SILFOAM® SP 150 has an excellent and lasting antifoam effect, which is of particular advantage in laundry detergents.


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. The information provided, as well as the product's fitness for an intended application, should be checked by the buyer in preliminary trials. Contractual terms and conditions always take precedence. This disclaimer of warranty and liability also applies particularly in foreign countries with respect to third parties' rights.

Effective release of the active ingredient takes place even at low temperatures, and a good antifoam effect is also achieved at elevated temperatures. SILFOAM® SP 150 is thus suited for both laundry detergent formulations with low washing temperatures and universal laundry detergents.
SILFOAM® SP 150 is recommended for phosphate-based and phosphate-free laundry detergents and can be used as a foam inhibitor on its own or combined with soap.
Due to its mode of action and carrier, SILFOAM® SP 150 has proved to be a universal antifoam agent for other powder products which are also likely to foam when they dissolve or are used, such as cleaners, granular pesticides etc.



SILFOAM® SP 150 has a very good flowability and is therefore easy to use. 0.5 - 2.5% are usually incorporated into the product to be defoamed, but if a very exact and extremely low dosage is desired, a premix with sodium sulphate or a carrier of your choice can be prepared.


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.
