Only for North America: TEGO® Foamex 885 - New Defoamer for Low-VOC Waterborne Architectural Coatings

Published on 2008-11-26. Author : SpecialChem

Announcing the latest addition to our extensive line of defoamers for coatings and inks: TEGO® Foamex 885. A 100 % active defoamer concentrate, TEGO® Foamex 885 performs exceptionally well in waterborne clears and pigmented architectural formulations; however, the notable feature of TEGO® Foamex 885 is its remarkable persistence as a defoamer in extremely low-VOC waterborne systems. Unlike most conventional defoamers, TEGO® Foamex 885 will not sacrifice performance when formulating for the low-VOC market.

TEGO® Foamex 885 is compatible with a variety of water-based resin systems including acrylic emulsions, styrene acrylic emulsions, vinyl and EVA emulsions, waterborne epoxy, and hybrid resins. Furthermore, the use of TEGO® Foamex 885 is particularly suitable for brush, roller, and airless spray applications.

TEGO® Foamex 885 should be incorporated to the grind under high-shear conditions, acting as a fast knock-down defoamer that will prevent micro-and macro-foam. The recommended addition level of 0.1-1.0 % as supplied is based on total formulation.
