BIO-SIL IGA/100 is a 100% antifoam compound contains silica derived components specifically formulated for foam control in solvent adhesives and related applications. BIO-SIL IGA/100 also aids air release in non-aqueous, UV-curable; hot melt; low tack adhesive systems. BIO-SIL IGA/100 is not mineral oil based so won’t swell the rubber rolls or plates used in the application of aqueous flexographic inks. BIO-SIL IGA/100 is not recommended for printing inks to be applied over metal substrates. This de-foamer is indirect food contact safe and solvent free
Common Areas of Use.
Solvent based inks
UV overprint varnishes
Pigment grinding phase of aqueous and non-aqueous inks
Printing press where ink application is by rubber plates or rollers
For non-aqueous applications BIO-SIL IGA/100 can be pre-dispersed to use in kerosene, white spirits, amylacetate, 2-ethylhexatol, toluene as well as solvents of similar nature. For aqueous applications BIO-SIL IGA/100 is effective when dispersed on isopropanol or a tertiary butyl alcohol at a suggested starting point of 10ppm w/w.
