Specific features of SILFOAM® SP 7960

  • Listed in EPA database
  • Powder

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 7960 is thus suited for both laundry detergent formulations with low washing temperatures and universal laundry detergents.
SILFOAM® SP 7960 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 7960 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 7960 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.
