Antifoaming and Defoaming Additives are typically 10% silicone based emulsions. These products are designed to provide excellent foam control in most water-based systems.
Foam generation is a problem in many spray tank combinations, particularly with Glyphosate. As the product description suggests, these formulations can be used prior to mixing as a foam preventive or after foam generation as a defoamer. The following properties are desirable in an Antifoaming-Defoaming Agent:
- Quickly dispersible
- High degree of spreadability
- Compatible with all Glyphosate formulations
- Stable formulation
- Low usage rates ½ – 2 ounces per 100 gallons of solution.
