Air Products Announces to Launch New Oil-Based Defoamers at Eastern Coatings Show 2015

Air Products announced that it will introduce the latest additions to its innovative portfolio of defoamers Airase 4750V and 4,800 defoamers at the Eastern Coatings Show in Atlantic City, N.J., from June 1, 2015 to June 4, 2015. The company's Airase 4750V and 4,800 oil-based defoamers are effective foam control additives for use in a wide variety of applications, including architectural and industrial coatings, inks, and adhesives. Airase 4750V is a proprietary vegetable oil-based defoamer, whereas Airase 4,800 is a 100% active, mineral oil-based defoamer. Both defoamers are designed for excellent film compatibility with sustained, long-term defoaming performance and are currently available in North America. The company will also highlight its portfolio of DynolTM superwetting surfactants, which provide both low equilibrium and dynamic wetting and are engineered for system compatibility as well as contributing little or no foam. Uniquely, the company is proud to offer four different classes of superwetters, each class with different attributes based on the nature of the superwetting surfactant molecules employed. The Dynol superwetting surfactants are particularly useful in formulations designed to be used in high speed applications or to wet difficult-to-wet surfaces such as plastics, wood, or even oil-contaminated metals. The company also offers a complete line of high performance ZetaSperse dispersants for resin-free and resin-containing systems as well as a variety of performance enhancing additives for dispersion formulation. To better enable formulators in choosing the right dispersant, Air Products has developed the Formulators Assistant ZetaSperse Tool (FAZT), which sets forth product recommendations and dispersion starting point formulations.
