Low foaming and defoamers
Foam can be both a blessing and a curse. However, while it is quite easy to produce foam when necessary, it is really hard to eliminate it when it is inconvenient.
Specially when developing products for Industrial & Institutional cleaning, or when developing products to be used inside washing machines, foam can go from being a mere annoyance to being the main reason for a production plant to stop.
Clariant has a complete line of low foaming surfactants, the Genapol® BE, EP and PF lines, and defoamers (Antimussol® line) to help customers with problems associated with foam.
