Liquid Detergent Solutions

Liquid Detergent Solutions

Silicone antifoams for liquid laundry detergents are complex blends of specialty siloxane polymers and treated particles.

Liquid antifoam concentrates can reduce costs and materials, provide performance at low use levels, and can enable compaction of formulations to get more detergent doses per bottle. This can prompt lower transportation costs, less space on retail shelves, and sustainability benefits.

Antifoam emulsions feature pre-set silicone particle size distributions and can be readily dispersed into liquid detergent formulations.

Antifoam compounds are 100% silicone mixtures that can be emulsified or dispersed according to the user's specific formulation and/or production process.

Proper delivery of the silicone antifoam to the detergent is crucial to effective foam control in the washing machine. It’s important to choose the one that is designed especially for your application. Consider the products featured below, including our solutions for liquid concentrates, Dow Corning® AC-8066 Antifoam and Dow Corning®  AF-8014 Antifoam, or refer to the full product selection guide (PDF) for additional details.
