Defoamers or anti-foaming agents are chemical additives that prevents and destroys the formation of foam respectively in industrial process liquids. Commonly used agents are oil and siloxane defoamers, examples of which are polydimethylsiloxanes, certain alcohols, stearates and glycols. The function of the defoamers is to make the foam bubbles coalesce to the point where they are large enough too harmlessly to the surface and then sink.

Defoamers are insoluble in water despite being surface active. It has to be formulated so that it will be dispersed as tiny droplets, i.e. as an emulsion to have a high surface area. The defoamers are mainly used in papermaking and pulp industries at various stages like bleaching, dyeing and scouring. It has also found applications in industrial waste water treatment, food processing, as an ingredient in food to prevent effervescence while serving, and in pharmaceutical industries.

Major player assessed in the report are :
– Nalco Co.
– Dow Chemical Co.
– Crusader Chemicals
– Cognis Group
