Troy Corporation has introduced two new defoamers—Troykyd D742 and D745. The two new defoamers offer a cost-effective solution to foam-related issues across many applications said the company. For example D742 and D745 are touted to provide excellent foam elimination while effectively maintaining surface properties such as appearance and gloss.
More specifically Troykyd D742 provides excellent air release in a wide range of aqueous applications, including wood finishes, architectural latex paints, industrial enamels, inks and overprint varnishes. The product is effective at low concentrations said the company.
Troykyd D745 offers effective air release performance in high shear applications, such as overprint varnishes, inks, adhesives and wood coatings. The product eliminates microfoam while maintaining excellent film appearance.
“Troykyd D742 and D745 are engineered for air release in high performance aqueous applications and do not contribute to a reduction in the desired properties of surface appearance and gloss,” says Dr. Izzy Colon, vice president and general manager, additives, Troy Corporation. “The products’ broad compatibility further allows manufacturers to inventory fewer defoamer products, which ultimately saves them money.”
