替换城市 Principle and influencing factors of special UV curing defoamer agents for paints(3)



Most surfactants used in coatings tend to be functionally incompatible with UV curing defoamer. In particular, emulsifiers, wetting and dispersing agents, leveling agents, thickeners, etc. can have an impact on the effectiveness of defoamers. Therefore, when coordinating various additives, it is necessary to pay attention to the relationship between different additives and select a good balance point.




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.

Baking temperature

When the paint is baked at high temperature at room temperature, its viscosity will drop at the beginning, and bubbles can move to the surface. However, because of the volatilization of solvent, the curing of paint, and the increase of surface viscosity, the foam will become more stable and retain on the surface, resulting in shrinkage and pinholes. Therefore, the baking temperature, fixing speed, and solvent volatilization rate also have an impact on the effect of defoamer.
