Advantage™ defoamers

Advantage defoamers are highly efficient, hydrocarbon oil-based antifoaming agents designed for use in construction and building products as a foam control agent. Advantage defoamers are designed to be emulsifiable with persistency so they can be used over a broad number of applications. Advantage defoamers are especially effective for use in building applications such as cement, fillers, gypsum, leveling compounds and mortars.

Advantage defoamers are typicallly effective at dosage levels between 0.1-1.0 percent by weight on total formulation. A liquid product, Advantage defoamers can be easily dispersed. The addition of Advantage defoamers results in low foaming solutions or pastes with low entrained-air content.
