Description

Airase defoamers and deaerators for waterborne applications are each formulated to provide the optimum of defoaming and compatibility in a given system. The product line offers a full spectrum of defoamer chemistries including organic oil, mineral oil, and vegetable oil. It also includes Air Products innovative Structured Siloxane Defoamer Line (SSDL defoamers), a line of defoamers designed to provide predictable performance relative to each other.

Siloxane defoamers can span the range between strong defoaming and good compatibility depending on the structure of the siloxane molecules and formulating components. The Airase SSDL defoamer line consists of 7 defoamers. Each product in this line has a different balance of defoaming strength and formulation compatibility for optimal defoaming performance in different formulations. This system is designed to provide a faster, easier way to choose a defoamer for water-based applications. It’s the first line of defoamers that structures the selection process, providing a range of defoamers that can allow formulators to hone in on the most effective defoamer/compatibility balance with minimal trial and error.

Airase 4500: A proprietary oil defoamer designed to eliminate foam, pinholes and entrapped air in broad range of water-based inks, adhesives and coatings without generating surface defects. It contains no added mineral oils, HAPs, or APEs and has several FDA compliances.

Airase 4750V: A proprietary vegetable oil based defoamer designed to control foam, bubbles, and entrapped air without generating surface defects. It does not contain added mineral oils, hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), or alkyl phenol ethoxylates (APEs). This defoamer combines good efficiency with excellent film compatibility and sustained defoaming performance, suitable for a wide range of waterborne applications.  Airase 4750V has good freeze thaw stability.

Airase 4800: A 100% active, mineral oil based defoamer for a variety of water-based formulations. It does not contain added hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), or alkyl phenol ethoxylates (APEs). This defoamer combines good film compatibility with sustained, long term defoaming performance.  Airase 4800 is ideally suited for satin, semi-gloss and gloss enamels.  It contains no added silicones and is freeze thaw stable.

Airase 5100: The strongest defoamer of the SSDL defoamer line. Designed for applications where strong defoaming is required and the formulations are not sensitive to cratering.  Contains no added APEs or HAPS and has good shear stability.

Airase 5200: A product in the SSDL defoamer line, it is designed for applications where strong defoaming is required and the formulations are not particularly sensitive to cratering. Provides excellent long-term, persistent defoaming in formulations. Better film compatibility than Airase 5100 defoamer.  Contains no added APEs or HAPS and has good shear stability.

Airase 5300: A product in the SSDL defoamer line, it is designed for applications where strong defoaming is required with good long-term persistency, especially in high shear applications.  Contains no added APEs or HAPS.

Airase 5400: A product in the SSDL defoamer line, it is designed for applications where strong defoaming is required with good long-term persistency, especially in high shear applications. Better film compatibility than Airase 5300 defoamer.  Contains no added APEs or HAPS.

Airase 5500: A product in the SSDL defoamer line, it can be incorporated in the grind or used as a let-down defoamer. Designed for applications where good defoaming is required with good long-term persistency and film compatibility.  Contains no added APEs or HAPS.

Airase 5600: A product in the SSDL defoamer line, it can be incorporated in the let-down of a coating or ink. Airase 5600 defoamer provides an excellent balance of effective defoaming and film compatibility.  Contains no added APEs or HAPS.

Airase 5700: A product in the SSDL defoamer line, it is formulated for incorporation in the let-down of a coating or ink and has the best compatibility in the SSDL defoamer line. Airase 5700 defoamer provides an excellent balance of effective defoaming and film compatibility.  Contains no added APEs or HAPS.

Airase 8070: A proprietary formulated modified siloxane deaerator. Particularly suitable for waterborne airless and air-assisted spray applications, this product is designed to eliminate foam, pinholing and solvent popping without generating surface defects.  It is an excellent deaerator for microfoam control.  Contains no added APEs or HAPS.
