ANTIFOAM AF 15 is a 15% aqueous emulsion of polydimethylsiloxane used as an antifoam in many industrial and food processing systems. It is recommended as a defoamer for highly alkaline or acid aqueous systems, exhibiting improved efficiency and longevity over conventional silicone antifoams. This emulsion also provides excellent defoaming properties in non-ionic, cationic, and anionic systems. Its low viscosity and easy dispersibility assure optimum foam control and handling ease.
ANTIFOAM AF15 may be used as received or diluted prior to use. When used as directed, as food additive, sterile water must be used for dilution. Pre-diluted solutions should be kept under agitation before use. Such dilutions or dispersion may provide greater ease of handling and more effective use of silicone.
