Control Foam with proven Silicone Antifoams from Dow Corning

Foam control is required in dozens of industries and Dow Corning products are designed for both immediate (defoamer) and persistent control (antifoam) formulations, and are available in compound, emulsion, and powder forms, for both aqueous and non-aqueous systems. Learn more about how antifoams are applied in your industry:

Chemical Process

Silicone is an ideal antifoam. It is liquid within a wide range of viscosities, has a low surface energy, and is clean. Enhance your chemical manufacturing processes like mixing, bottle filling, gas scrubbing, distillation, emulsion polymerization, filtration, and fermentation, using silicone antifoams and defoamers as formulation and processing aids.

Construction

Find and compare products for wood-plastic composite, wood-plastic composite decking, building materials, fencing, and outdoor furniture manufacturing and protection applications, including Hydrophobic treatments, Adhesion promoters and coupling agents, Binding and reinforcing materials and antifoams and processing aids.

Healthcare

Antifoam compounds and emulsions cover a wide range of healthcare applications such as Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) for use in OTC anti-flatulent or anti-gas products and Bioprocessing for use as a process aid in bioreactors, or fermentation processes.  

Household & Cleaning

Dow Corning's silicone antifoam products control, prevent and knock down foam that occurs during consumer use or in the production of laundry detergents. Dow Corning has designed many silicone antifoam products that can provide foam control performance in liquid, powder and tablet detergents.
