VOC-free and Bio-based Defoamers from ADDAPT Chemical B.V
Foamstop™ VF 10 N is a VOC-free defoaming agent suitable for high PVC paints, printing inks and emulsion based adhesives. Foamstop™ VF 10 N is easily emulsifiable, two thirds of the amount should be added during the grinding stage and the final third during the ‘let down’ stage to ensure prolonged defoaming properties in the final product. Nonylphenol (NP) is a notorious example of a persistent, bio-accumulative chemical and so the paints market had begun to move away from using NP in their formulations. Foamstop™ VF 10 N does not contain any nonylphenol derivatives and so is very suitable for paint formulations.
Based on a bio-renewable source Foamstop™ VF 35 N is recommended for pigmented low-VOC paints, high gloss emulsion lacquers and emulsion based adhesives. Due to its renewable source, Foamstop™ VF 35 N allows for a final product with less environmental impact. Highly effective defoaming properties enables formulators to only use small addition levels of Foamstop™ VF 35 N for sustained defoaming effects.
Foamstop™ CC 11 is a cost effective defoamer, perfect for paint emulsions based on PVC, VA/VEOVA, styrene/acrylics and pure acrylics. In high pigment-low binder paints, no intercoat adhesion problems should arise when Foamstop™ CC 11 is utilised as a defoamer. This enables smooth application of coats for an even final finish.
