BRB offers silicone-based system process aids that control foam-intensive applications to improve safety, throughput and give benefits to the final product used by consumers.
BRB Akasil Antifoam range of foam control agents is the culmination of 35 years development into siloxane-based technology. The range offers superlative foam-control characteristics to treat susceptible processes and formulations spanning a breadth of applications. BRB Akasil Antifoam range offers materials for use in water and solvent based, alongside solventless systems. All pack formats are catered for and would be delighted to advise best practise in terms of cost efficient dosing.
The Akasil Antifoam TG range offers the most cost-effective foam-kill in water-based technical processes where biological, chemical or physical effects result in undesirable levels of foaming. Lowest dosage rates and full miscibility with process-water keep your pipelines, pumps and process routes clear and free flowing.
