Home-care detergent producers, who produce washing machine detergents, in order to save the high speed machine, have to control the foam generated by surfactants.
Silicon emulsions or silicon non emulsions are being used in formulation.
Silicon-base Emulsion antifoam
These antifoams are concentrated modified silicones and Ester compositions that are being widely used in home-care and industrial detergents to control the foam generating level.
These antifoams are added to the formulation of liquid detergents in production and for powder detergents should be used in spray dryer and slurry system.
Non emulsion silicon antifoam
These antifoams are concentrated modified silicones and Ester compositions that are used specially for powder detergents in spray dryer and slurry systems.
