Foam Control Agents and Anti-Shrink Additives
Foam control agents are used in a variety of different industry applications. In construction for cementitious based compounds, liquid and powder foam control agents and anti-shrink additives are successfully used across various applications including flooring compounds, tile adhesives, repair mortars and grouts to remove entrained air and reduce shrinkage. In water-based paints, they are used to prevent air entrainment during the production of water-based paints as well as to prevent air bubbles from causing defects in the paint film upon application.
These products are formulated to contain very low levels of VOC’s, making them suitable for all indoor applications. Foam control agents are also used in adhesives applications, from viscous building adhesives to thin film PSA’s where compatibility is crucial.
