Antifoams & Defoamers

The generation of foam in manufacturing processes can create a host of problems, including equipment cavitation, vessel overflow and yield reduction to name a few. Proper control of foam often results in improved process and quality control. Southern Silicones produces a range of foam control products designed to eliminate existing foam (defoamers) and help prevent the formation of foam (antifoams).  Our foam control products have been carefully formulated to maximize performance, minimize dosage and minimize negative effects on the manufacturing process.  Southern Silicones is continually developing new products to address emerging needs.  Put us to work for you!
