Anti-foaming agents or defoamers are products whose function is to prevent and effectively reduce foam formation.
Preparations that effectively reduce the amount of foam are needed mainly in closed water systems, where at the same time there are foam-forming agents, such as surfactants. Antifoaming agents are used in industrial processes in which foam causes undesired effects or prevents proper operation of the devices. Foaming hinders the process of filling tanks, deteriorates the quality of products, and may delay the production process. For this reason, the use of agents that prevent or remove foam, helps to reduce technological problems and production costs.
Anti-foaming agents are mainly used in the paper, agrochemical and textile industries. Preparations of this type are also used in wastewater treatment plants and in the production of paints and varnishes.
