Power Up Your Waterborne Coatings with Effective Foam Control

Improved foam control for high-gloss waterborne systems

Dow Corning introduces a new additive for improved foam control in premium low- to medium-PVC water-based coatings and inks

Throughout the entire process of producing, filling and applying waterborne systems, foam generation can cause severe problems in the end result.

In cases where efficient defoaming is needed and the final surface appearance is critical to your system, consider Dow Corning® 108F Additive.

About Dow Corning® 108F Additive

Dow Corning 108F Additive is a highly efficient defoaming agent for waterborne systems. The siloxane-based emulsion is designed to deliver an optimized balance of foam control and compatibility in a wide variety of waterborne coatings and inks. Plus, its diluted delivery form makes it very easy to dose and use.

While Dow Corning 108F Additive can deliver excellent results in a wide variety of waterborne paint and ink systems, it is specifically designed for use in premium gloss applications, such as wood coatings, industrial coatings and inks, where its low tendency to cause craters or other surface defects is especially valuable.

In addition, the APEO-free and low-VOC nature of Dow Corning 108F Additive is of clear relevance to specific end users.
