Action mechanism of polysiloxane defoamer
The representative defoaming mechanisms of polysiloxane mainly include "bridging spreading" mechanism, "bridging dehumidifying" mechanism, and "spreading liquid entrainment" mechanism. The "bridging spreading" mechanism mainly starts from the basic point of "polysiloxane has a relatively low tension and is easy to spread on the liquid film." It emphasizes that defoamer droplets are prone to deformation, but this theory cannot explain the defoaming differences between individual polysiloxanes and mixtures of polysiloxanes and solid ions as defoamers. The "bridging dehumidification" mechanism is mainly based on the hydrophobicity of polysiloxanes themselves, but the defoaming effect of polysiloxanes with high viscosity cannot be well explained. The "spreading liquid entrainment" mechanism cannot be confirmed because some facts indicate that polysiloxanes sometimes do not spread on the surface of the foam film, but can also break the foam.

Defoaming agents should have the following properties: ① strong defoaming power and low dosage; ② Adding to the foaming system does not affect the basic properties of the system, i.e. does not react with the defoaming system; ③ Low surface tension; ④ Good balance with the surface; ⑤ Good heat resistance; ⑥ Good diffusion and permeability, high positive spreading coefficient; ⑦ Chemical stability, strong oxidation resistance; ⑧ Good gas solubility and permeability; ⑨ Low solubility in foaming solutions; ⑩ No physiological activity, high safety.

Recommendation: Polyethers, which can effectively prevent surface defects and have a small impact on gloss

Alkyl modified organosiloxane
As mentioned earlier, polyether modified polysiloxanes have some shortcomings; Alkyl modified polysiloxanes have precisely these advantages.
This series of polysiloxane products also belong to the comb structure. The molecular weight of this type of product is relatively small, around 10000, and n+m is about 30-50. The main purpose of modifying with alkyl is to improve thermal stability, compatibility, and unstable foaming, and even to have defoaming functions. However, as the modified alkyl chain increases, its ability to reduce surface tension also decreases

Features: More surfactants, stable foam

Mongolia Recommendation: Use polyethers or mineral oil to modify polyethers

Precautions for use of paint ink defoamer:

Before use, stir thoroughly and mix evenly; Adding the paint while stirring; Before use, it is generally not diluted with water; The dosage should be appropriate. Excessive dosage can cause shrinkage, edge shrinkage, poor brushing performance, and other problems; Too little dosage leads to poor defoaming effect; Add it in two stages, namely, add it in the grinding stage and the paint mixing stage, generally accounting for half of the total amount each time. Use defoaming agents with good foam suppression effect in the grinding stage, and use defoaming agents with good foam breaking effect in the paint mixing stage
