Low-foaming agents or defoamers are additives whose main role is to prevent the formation of abundant foam.
Low-foaming preparations are used wherever the effect of fast increase and stabilization of the foam is undesirable. In addition to reducing foaming, they also have surface-active properties that make them effective in washing and cleaning. Low-foaming products also have wetting and emulsifying properties, which facilitate the removal of contaminants. The requirement for these products is activity over a wide temperature range and compatibility with other ingredients of the preparations.
Low-foaming agents are used in various types of household chemical products for washing and cleaning, e.g. for dishwashers, metal cleaning, mining, textile industry, as well as in the dairy and food industry.
