Cuba What are the paint defoamer for paints(2)
Elimination of foam
(1) Physical methods
From the physical point of view, the methods to eliminate foam mainly include placing baffle or filter screen, mechanical agitation, static electricity, freezing, heating, steam, radiation, high-speed centrifugation, pressure reduction, high-frequency vibration, instantaneous discharge and ultrasound (acoustic liquid control). These methods promote the gas transmission rate at both ends of the liquid film and the liquid discharge of the bubble film to varying degrees, making the stability factor of foam less than the attenuation factor, As a result, the number of foam gradually decreased. However, the common disadvantage of these methods is that their use is strongly restricted by environmental factors, and the defoaming rate is not high. The advantages are environmental protection and high reuse rate.
Precautions for use of paint paint 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
