5000 Series - Silicone-free Defoamers

A range of silicone-free defoamers for aqueous systems many of which are suitable for use at elevated temperatures.

Products

DeCAL 5011 - Non Silicone Defoamer

DeCAL 5011 is a complex mixture of oils and low foam emulsifiers. It does not contain silicone oil or alkyl phenol ethoxylates.

Applications
DeCAL 5011 is a more effective version of DeCAL 5010 for use in demanding applications.

Benefits

  • Excellent stability to both shear and temperature.
  • Emulsifies readily with water.
  • 100% active, does not contain water.
  • Salt stable (to 100g 1-1). Hydrogen peroxide / Caustic stable (add DeCAL 5011 first)
  • Shear stable therefore suitable for jets with high jet nozzle pressure.
  • High temperature stability (130C or above). Superb emulsion forming characteristics on contact with water. An instant white emulsion is formed on addition to water

DeCAL 5040

DeCAL 5040 Chemical Type:

Water extended, mineral hydrocarbons, silica and surface active materials.

Applications

DeCAL 5040 is a highly effective foam control agent for emulsion paints, coatings and adhesives. The product utilizes new water in oil technology, to deliver a cost effective product specifically developed to reduce air entrainment during the manufacture and application of water based paints, adhesives and coatings.

DeCAL 5040 has long lasting efficiency – particularly useful where “in can” life is important. It is also useful in the Paper Industry for clay / latex and starch size press coatings.

DeCAL 5040 is suitable for use with a wide variety of copolymers including: PV Versatate copolymers, pure acrylics, styrene acrylics, CSBR, PV Acetate homo- and co-polymers, including pressure polymers with vinyl chloride and ethylene, acrylate co-polymers.

DeCAL 5040 is normally used as delivered.

In emulsion paint systems we recommend adding half to the pigment grind and the balance to the final blending.

The level of addition recommended is 0.1 – 0.5% depending on the severity of the foam problems.
