Why silicones?

Silicones can add value and lower the cost of formulations because they are versatile, provide long-lasting performance and have low use levels (typically 0.1 to 0.4%), so a little silicone goes a long way. By replacing organic fatty acids with silicone antifoams, formulations can be more compact by eliminating water – improving formulation flexibility, reducing packaging, saving shipping costs and contributing to sustainability efforts. With more than 40 years of proven performance, you can trust your antifoaming challenges to Dow Corning.
