A de-foamer or an anti-foaming agent is a chemical additive that reduces and hinders the formation of foam in liquids during an industrial process. The terms anti-foam agent and defoamer are often used in place of one another. The additive is used to prevent formation of foam or is added to break a foam already formed, such as gelatin in a ballistics mold.
In industrial processes, foams pose problems, such as:
- Defects on surface coatings
- Prevent the efficient filling of containers.
A variety of chemicals are available to prevent formation of foams. Custom Collagen suggests using 2.5ml of De-Foamer for a 20 lb Ballistic Gelatin block. This 4 oz de-foamer is sufficient for up to 100 pounds of gelatin. Whether making your own ballistic targets or using for archery or sporting activities, our anti-foaming agent and defoamers go well with our ballistic gelatin kits and supplies.
