SILFOAM® SC 369
SILFOAM® SC 369 is a medium viscosity antifoam agent that has an active ingredient content of 100 % and is based on an organically modified silicone fluid. In comparison to antifoam agents which are based on pure silicone fluids (PDMS), SILFOAM® SC 369 in general exhibits better compatibility with organic systems.
SILFOAM® SC 369 is recommended:
- for enhancing the effect of organic defoamers
- in applications where the use of silicones can causeproblems, e. g., in the textile, paint and lacquer sectors and in cooling lubricants
SILFOAM® SC 369 may be added as it is at high shear rates or in the form of a dispersion.
The degree of dilution should be as low as possible.
Suitable dispersing agents include ethanol, 2-propanol, acetone and 2-ethyl hexanol.
The exact dosage has to be determined in preliminary tests.
We recommend starting with amounts between 0.02 and 0.5 %.
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.
