Defoamers: Performance Optimization

Defoamers: Performance Optimization

In industrial processes, foams pose serious problems. They cause defects on surface coatings, causing issues in process or performance. Even without direct system impact, the presence of foam could result in a negative perception of system quality. In this training instructor will focus on the root causes of foam, best solutions and what mechanisms are available to reduce or eliminate it, and the nature of defoaming additives to be used to prevent foam.


Foam can be problematic causing issues in process or performance but can be handled easily if you know the root causes, and this what will be mainly discussed in the training. Instructor will share his expertise on Foam problem and Defoamer selections for the same.


Ideal training for paints and coatings manufacturers, additive suppliers, formulators, and will also help university graduates.
