New additive offers excellent foam control in low - to medium - PVC water-based coatings and inks
Dow Corning® 108F Additive
is designed especially for cases where efficient defoaming and final surface
appearance are critical
Dow Corning Corporation has introduced a new siloxane-based additive
for controlling foam in low - to medium - PVC water-based coatings and inks.
Dow Corning® 108F
Additive is a highly efficient defoaming agent designed to deliver an
optimized balance of foam control and compatibility in a wide variety of
waterborne coatings and inks.
"While Dow Corning 108F Additive can deliver excellent
results in many waterborne paint and ink systems, it is designed especially for
use in premium gloss applications – such as wood coatings, industrial coatings
and inks – where its low tendency to cause craters or other surface defects is
especially valuable," said Dow Corning Coatings Global Segment Leader
The product, which has limited noticeable impact on surface appearance is
effective at very low use levels, and its emulsion format makes it easy to dose
and use. Additionally, Dow Corning 108F Additive is APEO-free,
low-VOC and suitable for indirect-food-contact applications.
Dow Corning – a global leader in silicon-based solutions for paints,
inks and coatings – provides a broad range of additives for waterborne,
solventborne, solventless and radiation cure systems. Offering multiple
benefits, these additives are compatible with a wide array of binder systems
and diluents, and they are effective at low concentrations. Additional
