evonik-defoamer-Wooden-kitchen Evonik has introduced TEGO® Foamex 812 for wood coatings. The new defoamer has an ideal balance of effectiveness and compatibility while meeting stringent regulatory requirements.

TEGO® Foamex 812 Meets Highest Regulatory Requirements

Regulatory requirements are at the forefront of this new development: The new defoamer meets the requirements of the current labels for low-pollutant paints and coatings including the European EcoLabels and the relevant IKEA standards. For food contact applications, the defoamer meets the requirements of Swiss A and FDA, among others. TEGO® Foamex 812 does not contain any biocides or reportable SVHC substances.

In addition, the new defoamer offers strong defoaming power combined with high compatibility. TEGO® Foamex 812 is available worldwide (except Korea).

Applications of TEGO® Foamex 812

Although the new defoamer was developed specifically for wood coatings, it is also suitable for other applications: In addition to pigment concentrates, possible applications include printing inks with food contact, automotive coatings, and can coatings.

Evonik Coating Additives is continuously expanding its additives portfolio in response to new market trends, customer needs, and legal regulations.
