Antifoam Agents

In agrochemical formulations, different surfactant types are used to get specific and desired functions such as wetting, emulsification, dispersing, etc. Many of these surfactants tend to form and stabilize foam.

Foaming can occur while manufacturing or packing, but the most important problem is the foam that is created during field applications. Besides, the presence of foam can give a bad image if the process is operated under the eyes of a customer.

In order to find the ideal solution to these problems, it is necessary to know the causes of foaming, parameters of foaming systems, and anti-foam mechanism very well.

Our Maxant antifoam agents provide a long-durable foam control, allowing formulators to improve productivity and providing farmers more time to spray and less difficulty caused by foam.

To obtain the best antifoam for your process, consider the following questions:

  • Is the system aqueous or non-aqueous?
  • If the system is aqueous, what is the pH?
  • What is the temperature of the foaming system?
  • Is there agitation? If so, what type?
  • What is the volume or batch size of the foaming material?
  • What defoamer are you using now?

In summary, describe your process and explain at what point the system foams. Choosing the proper antifoam for your formulation is very important.
