A new, single fluorosilicone additive option is available to formulators of solventborne coatings and solventless radiation-curable coatings to control foam generation without causing surface defects or changes in the gloss and haze of the applied film. Dow Corning® 100F additive uses the low surface tension of fluorosilicone technology to provide foam control in solvent-based and radiation-cured coating formulations, including high-solids systems.

“With Dow Corning 100F additive, the paint and coatings industry has access to new fluorosilicone additive technology for foam control in multiple formulations, making it possible to achieve synergies in manufacturing and the supply chain,” said Jim Stange, North American Coatings Market manager. “And Dow Corning 100F additive also provides excellent foam control, even after long-term storage in a formulated coating, providing foaming protection and increased customer satisfaction.”
