antifoaming agents

an·ti·foam·ing a·gents

chemicals that lower surface tension (hence production of foam), used in laboratory evaporations, and also administered with oxygen to relieve the respiratory obstruction aggravated by the foam of edema fluid in pulmonary edema (pulmonary surfactant).

It's also an industrial solvent and an ingredient in adhesives, antifoaming agents, plastics and lubricants.
Among the additives are sweeteners, food color and color retention agents, antifoaming agents, glazing agents, and probiotic foods and dietary supplements.
The effluent is composed of free and emulsified oils, surfactants and co-surfactants, emulsifying agents, antifoaming agents, bactericides, rust inhibitors and solvents [2].
The remaining components required to formulate these products are emulsifiers, pH stabilizers, rust preservatives, antifoaming agents, corrosion inhibitors, lubricity aids, viscosity modifiers, biocides, and extreme pressure additives such as chlorine, sulfur, and phosphorus-based additives.
Amine Neutralizers, AntiFoaming Agents, Anti-Microbial Agents.
In addition, coagulants, flocculents, metal precipitants, emulsifiers, antifoaming agents, neutralizes, and odour control agents are added during wastewater processing.
Additives Offered: adhesion promoters, anti-blocking agents, antifoaming agents, dispersing agents, flow control
The standard is tougher on additives however, saying only acidity regulators, antifoaming agents, antioxidants, colours, emulsifiers, flavour enhancers, packing gases, preservatives, stabilisers and thickeners can be used, and then only in the detailed way described in the standard.
Additives include plasticizers, foaming and antifoaming agents, driers, biocides that inhibit the growth of mold, and ingredients that improve water resistance or opacity.
Polymeric surfactants such as polysiloxanes and polyether-modified siloxanes are found to function more efficiently than conventional mineral oil and hydrophobic particle-based antifoaming agents.
Since then Dow Corning has gone from strength, with some remarkable commercial successes, including silicone car polishes and antifoaming agents. One of the more interesting examples was the development of a silicone caulking compound that finally solved the longstanding problem of rainwater leaking through the horizontal glass panes of the futuristic S.
