Production of polymer dispersions
Additives for Polymer Dispersions
The polymer dispersions industry group has many years of experience in supplying antifoams and emulsifiers for the production of emulsion polymers as well as suspension polymers.
Since the specific type of emulsifier used determines the type of defoamer/antifoam required, Evonik offers not only a broad range of emulsifiers but also an equally broad range of defoamers. Since the use of a defoamer can significantly affect the production process itself and also the quality of the final product, the right defoamer has to have the following properties.
Properties of the TEGO® Antifoam product range
High efficiency for macrofoam
No negative side effects on polymerization process and product quality
Long term efficiency
Attractive cost /performance ratio
