We offer a wide selection of defoamers for many different aqueous and non-aqueous applications. These are manufacture by Münzing Chemie under the AGITAN®, AGITAN® DF, DEE FO® and FOAMTROL brand names.

Both aqueous emulsions of surface active materials and 100% active content systems are available. Chemistries vary but are broadly split between siloxane/silicone based and hydrocarbon/alkoxylated based. Grades with and without hydrophobic silica can be selected.

These defoamers are formulated to break down air stabilised in the liquid by surfactant materials which can lead to common problems such as surface defects in paints and coatings. Since foam formation can occur in many stages we are able to recommend Agitan and Deefo products to solve or prevent issues in production, transit and application.

Most grades have a non-ionic character and so are highly compatible with most common binder systems and additives. All products are highly efficient and have excellent persistence in their designed application area. There are some grades with indirect food contact approval, low odour and low taste. Biodegradable products are also an option.

If you have a foam problem then get in touch with us now or submit a sample request. Münzing Chemie and Lawrence Industries have many years of expertise in this field.
