Antifoam, Defoamer
and Foam Control

Silicone fluids, antifoams emulsions,
compounds, and powders for use as
antifoams, defoamers and deaeration materials.


Control unwanted foam with silicone antifoams
and expertise

Dow Corning's family of silicone fluids, emulsions, compounds and powders for foam control has demonstrated its effectiveness in virtually every major industry.

Designed to deliver both immediate and persistent foam control, these highly efficient antifoams can be used in formulations, or as processing aids, defoamers, deaeration materials and foam preventers.

So whether your foam occurs during processing, application or end use, silicone antifoams and expertise from Dow Corning can help you:

  • Improve processing and handling of materials
  • Reduce waste and improve efficiency
  • Increase throughput
  • Reduce foam control maintenance costs (lower your cost in use)

Give yourself the silicone antifoam advantage

Suitable for use in both aqueous and non-aqueous systems, silicone antifoams from Dow Corning:

  • Are effective at much lower dosage rates than organic antifoams, leading to lower cost-in-use
  • Are generally much more persistent (longer-lasting) than organic antifoams
  • Are generally less reactive in the foaming medium, leading to fewer compatibility problems
  • Are stable over a wide range of temperatures and pH levels
  • Food-grade options are available, including those certified Kosher and Halal.
