SagTex Industrial & Textile Antifoams

CONTROLLING FOAM IN TEXTILE WET PROCESSING

Because of our long-standing partnership with textile manufacturers, we recognize the critical need for specific foam control agents tailored to help combat specific foaming challenges in elevated or ambient temperatures, surfactant-rich systems or aggressive ionic foaming conditions. And our SagTex antifoam portfolio has typically met such demands by generally providing cost-effective, prompt knockdown and lasting foam inhibition to various phases of the textile manufacturing process. In some cases, properties engineered into SagTex products have resulted in effective foam control at concentrations less than half that of competitive silicone antifoams.

Not only do SagTex antifoams typically help to eliminate costly foam buildup that can cause productivity drops or uneven scouring or dyeing, but they also are formulated to generally introduce no new processing issues, such as oiling, fabric spotting or agglomerates. SagTex antifoams easily disperse in water and are insoluble in most systems, both key benefits for durability of antifoaming performance. They are inert and typically leave no substantial residue or odor on finished products.

Explore the SagTex antifoams product family to discover the right solution for your foam control needs.

SagTex DSA silicone antifoam is a medium viscosity, highly potent antifoam emulsion that offers excellent foam control as well as excellent compatibility in a variety of surfactant concentrates and foaming systems. Compared to common silicone defoamers, it offers exceptional foam knockdown and durability, and greater compatibility in difficult surfactant systems, e.g., such as those rich in solvents and/or electrolytes.


KEY FEATURES AND TYPICAL BENEFITS
  • High antifoam efficiency in surfactant-rich systems
  • Rapid foam knockdown
  • Excellent foam control at temperatures up to 95°C (203°F)
  • Long-term foam inhibition
  • Easy dispersion in all foam systems
  • Easy dispersion in hard water
  • Long durability in acid and alkaline conditions
  • No oily spots or lumps when diluted with water
  • Compatibility with a variety of surfactant concentrates

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS
  • TEXTILE PROCESSES
  • Sizing
  • Scouring
  • Printing
  • Finishing

PRODUCT USAGE GUIDELINES
SagTex DSA silicone antifoam is a medium viscosity emulsion that can be easily transferred from its original package using piston pumps. Centrifugal pumps are not recommended, as they risk destabilizing, and in extreme cases, separating the emulsion. In low viscosity formulations, preliminary stabilityand compatibility studies must be conducted prior to formulation design.

If SagTex DSA silicone antifoam is intended to be used in surfactant concentrates (primarily surfactants, water and solvent), it is recommended that the product be dosed in as received, i.e., without any predilution. Following its addition, carry out slow to moderate mixing to ensure complete and homogenous dispersion of the antifoam. Typical levels of use range between 0.1 and 0.5% depending on the formulation and the degree of foam control required. 
For process applications, we recommend prediluting SagTex DSA silicone antifoam with cold water in a ratio of 1:1 to 1:10. For high dilutions level, care must be taken to ensure stability of the dilution. Stability can be extended by adding small amounts of a suitable thickening agent, e.g., xantham gum or polyacrylates. Commercial biocides(a) containing 2-Methyl-4 Isothiazolin-3 ones and/or 2-Bromo-2-nitro-1,3-propanediol are very effective in this type of product.A suggested starting concentration is typically between 0.1 and 2%, but this will vary depending on the severity of the foaming problem.(a) Biocides must be used in accordance with FIFRA regulations and manufacturer’s guidelines.

SagTex PhD silicone foam control agent is a high-performance antifoam emulsion desgined for multiple uses in the textile industry. The product typically offers very good initial foam knockdown and excellent durability at concentrations less than half that of competitive silicone antifoams. Additionally, SagTex PhD silicone antifoam gives a homogeneous dilution in water or bath formulations with no oiling or agglomerates.

Key Features & Typical Benefits
  • Long durability in acidic or alkaline conditions
  • Outstanding durability at low add-on levels
  • Effective performance at significantly lower use levels than competitiv antifoams.
  • Excellent foam control at ambient and evelated temperatures
  • Rapid foam knockdown
  • No oily spots or agglomerates when diluted with water
  • Easily dispersed in hard water.


How to Use

SagTex PhD silicone foam control agent is a medium viscosity emulsion that can be easily transferred from its original package using piston pumps. Centrifugal pumps are not recommended, as they risk destabilizing, and in extreme cases, seperating the emulsion. In low viscosity formulations, preliminary stability and compatibility studies must be conducted prior to formulation design.

For process application, we recomment prediluting SagTex PhD silicon foam control agent with cold water (less than 18 °C) in a ration of 1:1 to 1:20. If the diluted SagTex PhD emulsion will be stored before use, then care must be taken to ensure stability of the dilution. Stability can be extended by adding small amounts of a suitable thinkening agent, such as xanthan gum or polyacrylates, to the diluting water. Commercial biocides containing 2-Methyl-4Isothiazolin-3 one and / or  2-Bromo-2-nitro-1,3-propanediol are very effective in this type of product.

A suggested starting concentration is typically between 0.1 and 2 percent, but this will vary depending on the severity of the foaming problem.

SagTex JSA Foam Control Agent

Product Price : Get Latest Price
Product Details:
Minimum Order Quantity200 Kg
Specific Gravity1.00 (estimated)
Viscosity250 cp
ApperanceWater white, transparent liquid
PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONSagtex JSA foam control agent is a 100% active, specially formulated antifoam composition. This product has been developed to impart low-foaming characteristics to clear, high-actives, scour surfactant concentrate formulations. Sagtex JSA foam control agent will not separate from nonionic scour surfactant concentrates that contain less than 15% water. The resulting scour concentrate, when diluted to use concentration, will be low foaming over the entire jet scour cycle. Best of all, Sagtex JSA, foam control agent is a free-rinsing antifoam and therefore will not cause fabric spotting. 
KEY FEATURES AND TYPICAL BENEFITS
  • High efficiency foam control agent for jet scour applications
  • Forms clear, stable concentrates if water concentration is less than 15%
  • Free- rinsing composition, will not cause fabric spotting

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONSSagtex JSA foam control agent has been developed to provide a clear premix in high-concentration scouring surfactant concentrates. Typically, these concentrates are based on alcohol ethoxylates such as C10-15 alcohols, with 4-6 (EO). The typical use concentration of Sagtex JSA form control agent in the scour surfactant concentrate is 2.5%.Sagtex JSA foam control agent can be used in other jet machine processes where an effective clear – rinsing antifoam is required.
