ASHLAND AQUALON: Foam-Control Agents

To serve the needs of waterborne paint formulators, Ashland Aqualon Functional Ingredients, a commercial unit of Ashland Inc., has developed four new Drewplus™ foam-control agents based on mineral oils and hydrophobic components. Versatile and flexible in use, the new foam-control formulations are specifically designed to ensure a long-lasting foam control in waterborne architectural paint systems, the company reports.

Drewplus L-1500 and L-1600 are 100% active, zero-VOC foam-control agents designed for various pigment concentration paints and suited for dosing in the grind stage. L-1311 is designed specifically for use in waterborne emulsion paints and plasters and is formulated to control foam at any point during manufacturing, packaging, or application of the paint.

All Drewplus foam control agents are alkylphenolethoxylates (APEO)-free and available in a variety of formulations. The materials also include high-performance polysiloxane-based compounds and emulsions that use proprietary quick bubble-break and dissolution chemistries.
