Air Products Introduces Airase(TM) Defoamers
New Structured Siloxane Defoamer Line Designed for Specific Defoaming and Compatibility Requirements
LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., -- Air Products (NYSE: APD) today introduced its new Airase(TM) Structured Siloxane Defoamer Line (SSDL(TM) Defoamers) comprising seven siloxane defoamers specifically designed for optimal performance in water-based formulations. These new defoamers have been designed to exhibit predictable performance relative to each other to provide formulators with a structured approach to defoamer selection.
The Airase SSDL defoamers are free of hazardous air pollutant (HAP) and alkylphenol ethoxylate (APE) and do not contribute VOCs to formulations, making them ideal for applications such as paints and coatings, colorants, inks, adhesives and other industrial applications. These products also have improved pH stability compared to conventional silicone defoamers and can provide excellent stability and persistency for coatings and ink formulations.
"We are excited to introduce the Airase line of defoamers and are proud of the ease of use that this new product line provides to water-based inks and coatings formulators," said Christopher Henkee, market manager, Specialty Additives, for Air Products. "Air Products continues to deliver the innovative solutions and provide the competitive advantage our customers seek."
Each Airase SSDL defoamer in the line has a different balance of defoaming strength and formulation compatibility. The consistent performance of each Airase defoamer relative to the other products in the series allows formulators to take a systematic approach to defoamer selection.
