Achieving the right balance of foam in standard and high-efficiency (HE) washers – while meeting customer perception expectations – can be a challenge for formulators. Based on years of proven antifoam performance, manufacturers can trust Dow Corning to deliver the consistent control needed in detergent formulations.

Proper delivery of the silicone antifoam to the detergent is crucial to effective foam control in the washing machine. It’s important to choose the one that is designed especially for your application. Consider the products featured below or refer to our product selection guide for additional details.
