BIO-SIL IGX/PWD 5 is a free flowing powdered antifoam consisting of a silicone based antifoam compound adsorbed onto an inert carrier. Showing excellent antifoaming and de-foaming of most aqueous systems, BIO-SIL IGX/PWD 5 is specifically intended for use in powder based detergents. Also suitable for controlling foam in a range of industrial applications where foam control is required upon hydration of a powdered product. BIO-SIL IGX/PWD 5 is effective at low concentrations and is fully soluble in both hot and cold water systems.
Common Areas of Use.
Waste Water Treatment
BIO-SIL IGX/PWD 5 should be added directly to the powdered system, towards the latter stages of processing. Suggested starting rate for evaluation is 0.5 - 4% of the powdered base, depending on the level of defoaming required.
Testing before formulating should be carried out as systems vary.
Material Safety Data Sheets are available upon request.
