Bolivia Differences in water-based mineral oil UV curing defoamer(2)




Stability factors of foam
The direct cause of foam is the presence of surfactant, which reduces the surface tension of the solution. Under the combined effect of this reason and the attenuation mechanism of foam, different foam systems show different stability properties, which are mainly related to the following factors: the surface tension of foaming solution, the surface viscosity of foam, the viscosity of solution, the self-healing effect of surface tension (i.e. Gibbs surface elasticity and Marangoni effect) "The surface double layer repulsion and entropy repulsion forces of liquid membranes, the hydrophobic end structure of surfactants, and the steric hindrance effect are not independent factors, and changes in one factor can cause other factors to also change.". The most important factors affecting the stability of foam are the elasticity of the liquid film and the liquid discharge rate. From this perspective, it can be seen that the main factors affecting the stability of foam are different in different foam systems, and sometimes several factors exist at the same time and work together.
In addition to the above factors, some other factors will also affect the stability of foam, such as the size of foam, the coordination of solute and solvent, temperature, pH value, the evaporation rate of solvent, the impact degree of foam and the adsorption rate of surfactant


The water-based mineral oil UV curing defoamerhas a fast defoaming speed and a foam inhibiting effect of up to several hours, which is also well matched with the foam system. It can be carried out in harsh environments such as high temperatures and strong alkalis, with good results. After use, there will be no phenomena such as oil bleaching and demulsification

Application and selection of water-based mineral oil defoamers:



替换城市  Waterborne mineral oil UV curing defoamer are suitable for use in water-based systems with weak emulsifying properties, such as latex paints, coatings, adhesives, inks, and other systems with low emulsifying properties. They are easy to emulsify and form uniform distribution in water-based systems, thereby reducing the likelihood of surface defects such as shrinkage and loss of gloss, and also reducing microbubbles. However, it should be noted that mineral oils and waxes, which contain a small amount of organosilicon, and adopt special preparation processes, have excellent product storage stability, and are not prone to separation or sedimentation even after long-term storage.
