Foam Suppressants: Introduction

  • Foam suppressants or antifoaming agents or defoamers are chemical additives that help prevent the formation of foam. They are also used to remove the foam which is already formed. Foam suppressants adhere to the surface of foam bubbles, consequently weakening and destabilizing them. This results in collapse of the bubbles.
  • Antifoaming properties of foam suppressants help reducing the foam formation instantly and prevent new foam formation at the same time. Foam impedes industrial procedures by distorting the surface coatings of products. Foam may be an integral and vital part of a process, or it can be an unwanted side effect.
  • Each of the foam suppressants is specially designed for individual applications in the global market. Numerous foam suppressants or antifoaming agents are available in the global market. Some of the generally used agents are polydimethylsiloxane, insoluble oils, and certain alcohols.
  • Foam suppressants are used in diverse applications. Large numbers of key vendors are entering into the foam suppressants market considering the high demand.
