Technical Paper -
Additives used to enhance pigment and substrate wetting in waterborne coating systems typically contribute to foam formation. This article reviews the physics of foam formation and compares microfoam formatioin to macrofoam formation. Defoaming agents based on silicone polyethers, acrylates, polyesters and fatty alcohols are studied for effectiveness in eliminating microfoam formation. The...
