Foam Blast® 349

Hazy Yellow Fluid

Foam Blast 349 is one in a series of non-mineral oil defoamers developed for waterborne ink and coating systems. Foam Blast 349 is 100% active and is highly effective at relatively low use levels compared to mineral oil-based defoamers currently used in inks and coatings. Foam Blast 349 has been proven effective in many other areas, such as polyvinyl alcohol. Foam Blast 349 is especially effective in corrugated and newspaper ink systems.

Industrial Foam Control – Synthetic Polyol

Foam Blast® 327100% active multiple hydrophobe product designed for versatility and compatibility. Does not contain petroleum oils and will not cause swelling of rubber rollers or polymer print plates.
Foam Blast® 332100% active product incorporating a blend of organic and synthetic materials. This pulping defoamer concentrate does not cause problems downstream and is effective in hot or cold applications over a broad pH range (1 to 10).
Foam Blast® 338100% active product designed for ease of use and long term foam control at low levels compared to paraffinic oil-based defoamers used in inks and coatings. Proven effective as a foam control agent for polyvinyl alcohols. Generally more economical than silicone defoamers while offering similar or better performance.
Foam Blast® 349100% active and highly effective grind defoamer at relatively low use levels, compared to mineral oil-based defoamers. Proven effective in low VOC systems and effective in high gloss sheens.
Foam Blast® 46925% active synthetic emulsion product designed for quick foam suppression.
Foam Blast® 476100% active product controls mechanical and biological foam. High spread rate for knockdown and excellent stamina. Works in most industrial and municipal effluent systems in digestors, aeration ponds, flumes and the river outfall. Also an effective paper machine defoamer.
Foam Blast® 550100% active, particulate and silicone free product designed for aqueous and energy curable systems, i.e. UV curable oligomers, inks and coatings. Comparable or superior to silicone anti-foam compounds in foam control. Does not interfere with the application of top coats or adhesives to cured films. Reactive functionality becomes incorporated into the macromolecule as the film is cured.
Foam Blast® 590EDeveloped for water-based coatings, adhesives and inks. Excellent age stability very low (less than 1%) VOC. Will not cause swelling of rubber rolls or flexographic printing plates.
